Casio Exilim EX-Z50 review
May 1, 2005

POOR IMAGE QUALITY!

After just a few minutes of use, I could tell this camera had a severly substandard
image quality. Images were consistently grainy and poor. I tried several different
lighting situations, as well as different file sizes and settings. All to no avail.

For me, this was a big step-down from my Sony 5 megapixel camera. Going in, I
thought there would be some quality differences between the two, but I didn't
know that ultra-compact meant poor quality.

I returned the camera the next day after shooting around 100 pictures. I tried to
make this camera work for me and to be happy with it, but in the end, I had no
remorse about returning it.

I replaced it with a Canon SD300 which is actually smaller, but takes much better
quality pictures. My recommendation would be to stay with Canon for ultra-
compact, but if you want to try the Casio, make sure the business has a good return
policy.

Problems:

* grainy picture quality
* poor auto-focus
* terrible image quality in low-light situations
* must use dock to access camera
