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.

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, ...

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 ...

Paid only £159.99 from Amazon. I was slightly worried after reading some of the reviews about the hit and miss on lens quality and problems with playing the video files on PCs. It seems all my worries are gone. The camera is simply brilliant for a point and shoot and the quality excllent. So far not observed anything but a slight distortion in the bottom left and right corners of the photos. But I brought this as a point and shoot that my wife can keep in her handbag all the time. Videos ...

The camera construction is excellent and quick and easy to use. Even though it lacks the capability of shutter or aperature adjustments, it makes up in the BEST SHOT feature. Over 30 pre-programmed settings to cover any situation. The controls are well placed, and the camera is comfortable to hold. Even a real novice will find this camera easy to use and will be taking great photos right out of the box. I purchased it for it's size and was pleasantly surprised with it's capabilities. You ...

I just bought this camera and took it on vacation. I was generally very impressed with its performance given its small size. We also had a 6MP Canon DSLR with us. In comparison, the lens on the S600 is not good enough to give you true 6MP, especially when zoomed all the way in. However for a camera this size it was very impressive and in my opinion better than the Sony T-9 I tried earlier. The best: - very quick startup. The motorized lens extends quickly enough that it's not a hindrance - ...

I am a fans of Canon. But when I choose a DC with mpeg4 , I am forced to choose another one. For neither of Canon can take mpeg4. S600's mpeg4 movie is great. 1G SD card can take 1 hour movie. This is why I choose this DC and it's really good. And S600 is cheaper than any other DC which can take mpeg4, and it's much cheaper than a DV.
