This camera wasn´t so bad at all. Pics were good at base ISO, even at higher ISOs just acceptable. The sliding lens cover is useful for switching on and off the camera. I love this design and because of this I bought a Sony TX9 later. Movie mode was good at its time, VGA with decent quality and zoom, however no stabilisation, but good stereo sound. Some editing programs have problems with the files(MOV). Problems: No stabilisation at all even if the specs say there is one. DPreview tested it ...

Like the last reviewer, I'm posting after substantial usage and a few thousand images. I mostly agree with the "concise review" done by Simon back in 2007, but have a few differing or additional comments. The camera has a concise, sturdy feel, but it does not deal well with impact. Mine dropped over the side of a coffee table onto a carpeted floor, and it began showing the "lens error 2" message whenever it starts, and whenever it returns from the "play" to "take" function. The message ...

Conclusion: I'm very satisfiet with this camera Problems: Nothing to notice yet

This camera packs a heck up a lot of features. Suprisingly I have not taken a ton of photos with it, but lots of videos. The advantage of this camera is you take it with you everywhere. Goes in your pocket, even inside a case. The Bestshot presets are great, for both movies and photos. Also, the ISO is reasonable and does not gain up to 1600 unless you want it to. Pretty much stays at ISO 400 & less using the presets. I actually like the computer cradle for the majority of use, but it ...

I owned this camera for a couple of months. Pictures quality is very poor, colors are totally disappointing (this seems to be a problem of most CASIO cameras). I ended up using it for filming rather than photographing. I bought this camera only because of the zoom, which compared to classical 3x is much more enjoiable. Yet at high usage (7x) is really bad performing, both for pictures and even worse for films. It is a bit over-weighted and over-sized, still fits in pocket without any problem. ...

I had reservations in getting this camera coz of the infamous "stabilizer unavailable" problem and the red eye but finally gave in when the price really went down. Mine was black and is "made in japan" if that means anything... So far no problems after 2 months of use. The greatest feature is the 7x optical zoom which you could use while shooting movies. This isn't just a competent digicam folks, it's also a very good camcorder replacement and will render your MiniDV obsolete. You can also ...

Very disappointed with the camera. Quality of mediocre image, little flash and many red eyes. Fragile framework that does not overcome small blow. Guarantee does not take charge. 6 months of use for 300$. Quality of acceptable video if manual controls are used. Battery of long duration and that loads completely in only 2 hours. It includes neither case nor card of memory(report). It warms up on having used her if you record video camera focuses constant. The manufacturer does not take charge ...

I was searching for a pocket camera with manual controls. Fuji F31fd was sold out and I don´t wanted this xD-cards. So I found the Casio EX-V7. It has a slim body without extending lens, S, A and M mode and is small and handy. I paid 170 € for it, I think that was ok. The camera has a nice on and off switch which covers the lens. AF is quick enough. IQ is good at lower ISOs. Don´t expect too much. You can tweak the in-camera settings. M, A and S mode work good. Overall I´m satisfied with this ...

Here is my opinion after using the V7 for about 4 months now, taken about 4500 photos and videos with it. BRIEFLY: Used purely as a digital camera, the V7 has excellent features for an ultracompact. However, image quality is less than spectacular. Pictures have excellent color to my eyes but most pictures tend to be a little soft especially on close examination (I think due to excessive noise reduction). It doesn't help that the lens is on the slow side, the CCD-shift anti-shake mechanism ...

I purchased this camera and returned it two days later. I was very disappointed with the quality of the images. If picture quality is important to you I would not recommend this camera. If not, and you have no expectations of decent quality pictures, it is great, it's easy to use, starts up fairly quick and fits in your pocket.
