I've had this workhorse for about 18 months now and wouldn't be without it. I also have an Olympus 8080WZ and it is an excellent camera also--but when you're traveling--walking, biking or whatever, this is the one. Excellent battery life. Nice charging stand. Smallest of any digital I've seen. Remember the Minox? That's kind of the feeling I get with this camera. Superb VF. Way cool. Problems: Not a one..let me think..no, not a one.

Was looking for a small camera, mostly for party usage, but good enough to bring along on vacation for the more simple vacation shots. This camera seems to be the perfect choice for that situation. Both indoor and outdoor shots are of pretty good quality, size-wise it's about as perfect as it gets as it fits into the pocket of your shirt and it's extremely fast and easy to use. I would therefor highly recommend this camera to people in similar situations. Problems: None.

I wouldn't consider myself to know an awful lot about cameras, but I know a little, and I know I like this camera. For the purposes of having a point and shoot camera that fits in your pocket and you can take it anywhere (day out or night out)it is excellent. I've found the picture quality to be fine, especially if you're planning to print of 6 x 4 prints, and even if you're just looking a them on your computer. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone looking for a small, highly ...

I have been a Pro Photographer for some time now, and image quality to me is at the top of my priority list. On occasion I like to carry around a point and shoot camera for simple ease of use, especially if on a vacation. Nothing bothers me more than walking around all day carrying a boat anchor around my neck...hence a nice easy to use point and shoot. I'll leave the boat anchor for professional purposes. I wanted to replace my older Konica point and shoot because of it's poor ability to ...

Bought this to have a small point and shoot for the family. Cycle time with flash is amazing and it is really easy to use, sturdy and compact. Problems: Too much stuff to travel with. Lithium battery cannot be picked up at the 7-11 if you forget your charger on vacation and the image quality seems to have been traded for the amazing cycle time. Returned the camera because the images were so degraded and noisy

TWO in ONE, Cam and Recorder. Very small camera with very greater opportunities, the main advantage is certainly video record quality is the best. Auto focus is great, also in the night. VIDEO MODES: ( MODE HIGH :3841 Kbps, 29.969 fps, 640*480 (4:3), M4S2 = MS ISO MPEG4 V2, Audio 177 Kbps, 44100 Hz, 1 channels, 0x11 = IMA ADPCM) - 1GB SD = 33 min) ( MODE NORMAL :2000Kbps 29.969 fps, 640*480 (4:3) MS ISO MPEG4 V2, Audio 88 Kbps, 22050 Hz, 1 channels, 0x11 = IMA ADPCM) - 1GB SD = 1h ...

My ratings are in absolute terms so if you are wondering why the picture quality is only a 3.5 it is because I consider top of the line D-slr to be a 5. Perhaps that is right way to look at things possibly the wrong way - I don't know. I love everything about this camera and only picture quality is not perfect in my book. Construction scores high in the how-in-the-hell-did-they-make-this-thing-this-durable-and-small department. The mostly metal construction is top notch. (on a side note ...

Excellent images except under dark light conditions. Some examples can be found at my pbase.com/danpolley galleries. Very easy to use. Problems: Images taken at 1600 ISO have a lot of noise.

Wow, what a camera. This camera packs so much power into such a small package it's incredible. Outstanding feature set, very comfortable to handle, even in my large hands, and most importantly the image quality is fantastic. Nice saturated colors, crisp images. This is absolutely the perfect camera for traveling. You can also go to otterbox.com and order the model 1000 hard case. it fits perfectly and is waterproof! Problems: The strap is a bit small but that is truly a minor nit.

This is my 6th digital camera, I first got a Digi when they came out at 640x480 res and price was £500. Ive had from Nikon to Canon and my last camera was a Sony W1 which was very nice but a litlle bit bulky for my liking. I looked around and wanted the smallest Digital camera with good pic quality. I also wanted zoom that came out rather than the Sony T1 style built in Zoom. I have had the Casio for a week now I also purchased a 1 gig 66x speed SD card, the exta speed is definately needed ...
