Casio Exilim EX-Z75 review
This is my second Casio, the first lasted several years and the lens eventually stopped coming out of the body. No big deal, we got a few good years out of it.
We've had this EX-Z75 for just over a year (and just out of warranty), had to replace the battery already (at $30 a pop for a brand-name replacement at Best Buy, it should last longer!). Last week, the camera fell off a chair onto a vinyl floor. Once again, the lens mechanism failed. Sometimes it will flash "lens error" on the screen, sometimes the lens will extend but the little doors will not open.
The whole lens assembly seems to be made of wobbly plastic, and destined to fail. If you don't mind paying $150 for a convenient little camera that takes decent pictures and lasts a year or two, this may be the camera for you. If you expect more for your money, look elsewhere. Personally, I'm done with Casio.
