I bought this camera years ago, and it's still with me and going strong. Very handy for quick photos, and the quality is still miles above mobile phone cameras with similar amounts of pixels. I recently bought me a decent SD card and rediscovered the option of included mp3 player. I use it when travelling somewhere, I don't have to bring a camera and an mp3 player. Other good thing is that from a quality point of view in the first place it's a camera, and the mp3 players is only an addition. ...

Less IS more. Quick: snapshot fast. No lag whatsoever. Why do all the others waste time autofocusing? Less IS more. Image quality, both optical quality and color, rendition is vastly improved over the original S1 model (which I adored, and lost). Where sometimes S1's pics had obvious weaknesses, the S3's are highly acceptable. Good sharpness, much better (but not exceptional) color. The histogram is handy. Controls are easily understood and operated (unlike those on a certain high end ...

Pros: - Great design. Very sleek. Large LCD is an attention grabber. - Portability. Very light and thin. The actual size is not as small as you'd think. But the lightness of the camera and it's thinness makes this maybe the most portable camera. You can just put it in your front shirt pocket and not feel like anything's in there. - Lots of cool functions. The best shot mode is awesome. It allows you to make your own settings, and use it at ease. ISO levels are pretty decent too, ...

Very fast camera, within two seconds you can grab it, switch on, take picture, switch off and put it back. And it is very very small and has a large LCD. But..the image quality suffers a lot from this tiny size. The distortion is severe, I took pictures of paintings and they get a funny wave form. Also there is a lot of vignetting, dark corners and dark spots especially noticable in skies. Because of that I think it is a somewhat expensive gadget. Problems: Dust or sand under the play/record ...

Great little pocket camera, very fast, easy to carry, perfect for point-and- shoot conditions. Great ooh-ahh effect from friends too! Problems: Dust under the lens. Pretty bad, since I carry mine in my pocket most all the time, accumulates dust UNDER the lens, were you can't get to it to clean. Resulting images are bright and haloed when the dust exists. I haven't yet written to Casio about this.

Verry good camera. Verry fast, don't miss a shot. Don't expect superb quality for this type of camera. It's not so good as my Nikkon Coolpix 5000 for example but the Casio is much lighter so you can take the camera easy in your pocket. For all the speed of the new processor is impressive! I'am verry happy with it. Minus: digital zoom is useless due to poor image quality. Plus: Fast, light, verry low power consumption, easy to use. Problems: No problems

Very Neat Camera with some very FUN features. There are so many things you can do. Like Changing the back ground, taking split screen pictures, and others. The small size is a big plus for me. Im usually on the go when i take pictures. PLUS Biggest LCD for its size Im glad they have zoom on the 3.0mp THe 2.0mp model didnt have optical zoom. (personally Digital Zoom is almost worthless) Problems: Picture quality is not as good as Brand Name Cameras. The case is not as cool as the 2.0 version.

This an amazing little point & shoot. Instant response with zero shutter lag. SO refreshing from the other digital consumer's dreadful responsiveness. 4X6 Kodak new digital software chemical prints outstanding. Best Shot custom settings let you tailor to your tastes for warmer color balance, high saturation, saturation, enhanced greens, etc. Hyperfocal works well, made a +1 custom closeup lens with press-on rubber washer for really great shots less than 3 ft. Also taped small piece of ...

For a camera with a fixed-focus lens, the S3 produces acceptably sharp images. It's very quick and responsive, taking less than a second from being switched on to start shooting. Considering how big the LCD is for a camera this size, the battery life is surprisingly good. There's no optical zoom although there's a 4x digital one. Like all digital zooms this one is best left switched off. There's no macro either, and the lack of a tripod socket makes night shots and self-portraits quite ...

This is an extraordinarily small digital camera--certainly the thinnest digital camera that can take high quality pictures (>2 megapixel). Here's a brief listing of the pros and cons, but let me mention that overall, I am quite satisifed with this camera, despite some problems: Pros: - Oustanding battery life. - Really excellent, very large LCD screen. - Very useful, powerful, and intuitive interface. - Excellent physical construction. - Amazingly small size. - Movie quality and audio ...
