I have had the camera for approx two years. It is easy to use and easy to bring along, due to the very small size. However compeared to my previous camera the Canon Ixus 65 the usablity of Ex-S600 is significantly poorer. Eg. quick adjustment of ISO values and Marco shots are much better with my previous Ixus 65 camera. If it wasn't for the below (annoying) problems I have experienced, this would be a very good bargain! Problems: What really annoys me about the Ex-S600 is the problems I have ...

I'm a contractor and record all phases of remodel and construction. The Ex-S600 has taken over 12,000 high quality images that I regularly forward to clients. It seems to work very well in all lighting situations and I love the 'best shot' feature. I bought a 10mp EX-Z1050 and don't like it nearly as much. I have a Nikon D-80 but still prefer the shirt pocket version of the EX-S600. Problems: Have to be careful in low light.

This camera was bought for me to use at work since it can fit right in my pocket. I find the size is amazing and it works well enough for a point and shoot. The movie mode also comes in handy. The software that comes with the camera is useless. Mine holds a charge for a decent amount of time, even during prolonged usage. Problems: Image quality in my opinion is very poor. The focusing is a 50/50 shot even if the subject is standing directly in front of you in ANY light. Annoying that ...

Well, first of all I was looking for the smallest camera possible and that is about it. It was between this and the Sony T9/T10. I ultimately chose this because of the bad reviews I have read on both the T9 and T10 and because there was a significant difference in the price. The only reason that I did not put 5 for Construction is because the lens pops out of the camera instead of being contained like with the Sony. However, this is barely a problem because the camera turns on and off so ...

Ok, this is not the greatest camera ever made, nor should it be. What it is, is a well built, easy to use, highly pocketable P&S. Pushed to the end of the Telephoto, the weakness of the lens shows, but used as a take (almost) anywhere(hey, don't go diving with it!) snap camera that anyone can use, it's hard to beat. Especially at the price of £120/$235. Oh, did I mention the movie mode? OMG. This was the real clincher. It's GREAT, I mean, really great. This may not not be quite DV quality, ...

If you're considering buying a Casio, you need to know why I'll never buy another Casio product again. I bought a Casio digital point and shoot about 6 months ago. I make my living as a photographer, I'm a gadget guy and I've owned dozens of point and shoots. I did a lot research and decided on the Casio. The features and design are great. Image quality is only average, but I can live with that. I got it and was really happy with it for about 4 days. Then it wouldn't turn ON. I'd push ...

This camera really has just about everything you would want in a P&S -- great size, solid construction, good ergonomics, unbelievable number of settings (for a P&S), intuitive menu navigation, brilliant and huge LCD screen, minimial shutter lag, dynamite battery, and so on. Just about everything. Unfortunately, the difference in image quality between the Casio and the Fujifilm Finepix F30 I ended up buying instead is only slightly less pronounced than the gap between a disposable camera and ...

Casio makes great ultra thin cameras but that's probably their only selling point. The image quality on this casio is OK depends where you are taking the picture, really can't expect much from this little thing, but it did improved from my previous casio a bit. However, the battery life is still amazing, super long. In general, if you need an easy-to-carry camera, this will suit you well because of its super thin and small compact size. Not recommended for good image quality seekers. Problems:

A Great Camera with excellent features and ergonomics. Turns on very quickly. Very short shutter delay. 35 camera presets (called Best Shot) are easy to understand and use and put the camera into a mode that is actually useful. You can store personal camera setups if desired. Picture quality is adequate for an extremely tiny, ultimately portable camera. MPEG4 video uses M4S2 codec; fabulous quality. Plays well with Windows Media Player 9. (Crashes QuickTime Player, but you can download Window ...

I bought this camera mainly because it was the smallest one I could find. Amazon seem to be the cheapest and sell it for £80 less than Jessops and the like. I own a Canon 350D and the purpose of the casio is something to have with me all the time and for the rare occasions that I dont have my Canon to hand and also as a tool for takling pictures as sighters for possible future shots with my canon. I'm not one for reading manuals and so far have found no problems with setting the camera up ...
