Casio Exilim EX-Z120 review
Mar 23, 2006

Overall, a fine camera - if you account for some minor issues.

When configuring the camera, keep flash intensity up a notch and color saturation down 1 notch for realistic color saturation. The images taken tend to be on the cool side as well (for example, burgundy looks more purple than red)

Also keep jpg settings to "fine" as the camera tends to compress things.

Auto-focus is a bit disappointing, my previous digital camera doing rather better with it...

As for noise, this camera is overall low noise (especially with chroma noise), better than others on the market, but today's market does stress "MEGAPIXELS!" over "image quality". My older cameras of lesser megapixels having lower noise overall.

Chromatic aberration is also good on this camera; little purple fringing to be found anywhere.

And it's compact.

The camera's functionality allows use for beginners or experts; aperture, shutter speed, and just about everything else can be modified. There's even an optional histogram monitor on the display.

Overall, a great value.

Problems:

Shutter release button tends to stick after a while (first started noticing around pic #800).
