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, ...

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

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 ...

As a international spy for various covert government agencies, I can tell you this is one of my favorite spy cameras. As a off duty spy, I can also report this is a excellent fun camera to take along with you for causual social gatherings! My only regret is that it is not smaller and does not have enough manual control. It would be also nice to disable the auto focus and set it to infinity in manual at the highest f-stop. But you can't have eveything.

Well, I bought this little gem yesterday and the first thing I noticed was the incredible BIG 2" screen on this little Exilim. I've also had the EX-M1, EX-M2 and by far this is the best creditcard-sized Exilim yet (The Ex-Z3 isn't the same type of camera in my opinion) The pictures I've taken so far seem to be a little bit "grainy", but not as bad as the older exilim camera's. There is one thing I am a bit scared of and that is getting scratches on that 2" screen. Problems: - "grainy" ...

I got this camera for £250 in the UK. It's small!! The size of my Amex card, and its weight isn't even noticeable. It fits into any clothing, which is cool for going out. The flash is pretty powerful. The image quality (so far) hasn't been as good as I expected. I had a 2.1MP Fuji (before my girlfriend dropped it..) and I think the quality is comparable. I've only used it for a few days though. It has tons of features, with the ability to chance white balance, ISO etc. It also has ...
