This camera has an uncommonly specialised purpose in my world, being used by my partner, who is severely vision impaired, almost exclusively to obtain botanical reference material that's shot 95% in extreme close-up. For this purpose, the camera is tailor made for her with its large LCD, excellent macro mode, and almost negligible weight since she has to walk most places. The macro capability is extraordinarily good, IF one manages to get a good copy, and can sometimes manage to embarrass my ...

a great cam. maybe not for the professional, but it's perfect for all-day use/snapshots. small, fast and cool. Problems: - exposure can't be set up manually - no direct usb-connection (must use bundled cradle) - unsharp edges of zoomed images

had the camera for about 4-5 months and I'm quite satisfied - size is great! fits easily in my jeans front pocket and thus easy to carry around everywhere i go. Construction is VERY STURDY for a device this small. - zoom lens is a must. I use it a LOT and have a hard time picturing the utility of the non-Zoom version of the exilim (or, for that matter, other ultra-compact digital cameras) - the 2" LCD is a hit - it's really bright and creates some energy esp. at social gatherings - ...

Spent 5 days at Disneyworld. Using this camera was a breeze. I loved how quickly you can take a picture and then set up for the next picture. I was worred that it had 3.2 megapixels, but found the 8 x 10 prints as good a my higher pixel camera. Kept it on my belt just like a telephone. The construction was excellent, and found the pentax zoom lens setup excellent as well. I loved using it. Problems: No problems encountered.

This camera is Great! It has it's own dock & extremely easy to get these on your PC - just press a button. It is pretty small & has plenty of features & is easy to use. The main selling point for me was that the LCD screen is 2 inches - it's huge! It takes great pictures for me - I am not a phographer, so I don't need extremely exquisite pictures. If you want that in a camera, you will need to look at something else. A great buy & would definately recommend if you are looking for a very ...

A great little camera with a large LCD. Give very good photos. Bit mean, at this price level, not to give a basic case. Highly recommended except for battery problem below. Problems: More seriously the rechargeable batteries go flat in about a week when not in use. Removal does not improve matters, even if you could be bothered, as then the clock/date/data details are lost and need resetting before you restart. This leaves you recharging atleast every 7 days. Casio say it is OK because ...

Space between frame - battery get empty by itself Problems: I offered this pretty nice camera to my girlfriend and we are really happy of it. HOWEVER : - we just noticed that the battery get empty in few weeks (2 or 3) even if you don't use the camera. It looks the camera use quite a lot of energy even when shutted down. May be a problem on my Li-ion battery or a default on the camera - the frame of the camera is opening , about 0.5-1 millimeter, on the top of the camera (close from the power ...
