Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 review
May 20, 2007

Replacement for an EX-Z750, which has the dreaded "Lens Error". I'm sort of happy with this as a follow-on, especially with a brighter LCD and a better color balance. Even with 10MP, though, it's definitely not better than it's predecessor. The one thing that is better, is the price is much less.

Problems:

Right now I'm still playing with it - I find many images are overly soft and I don't know why. This model also lost the viewfinder, mode dial and the dock (cradle). Also, the flash is definitely less powerful - I suspect they did this to retain the excellent battery life figure. The Z750 could easily flash a room, but with this camera I feel I have to get much closer to the subject matter.
