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 ...

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 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 ...

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.

good construct, feel just right in the hand. the lense cover is very easily moved when you put in/out of pocket, so is the mode dial. i need to constantly check the dial after taking it out of my pocket. excellent outdoor image when i bright light, very good macro. however, the indoor/low light photo is a major problem, bestshot mode doesn't work very well indoor - very dark(same mode without flash actually turned out better than with flash) - so renders the bestshot useless indoor. vertical ...

I had very high hopes for the EX-V7. I was (and still am) very happy with my EX-Z850, but I really wanted the longer zoom and the hardware image stabilization. Here are some positives: - In manual mode, you can choose 3 aperatures (vs. 2 for the EX-Z850). I'm assuming that the third may use the neutral density filter? - The framing best shot actually was a nice little Best Shot. It would track the subject and take a 3MP picture framing it. However, it used the tracking focus and unfortunately ...
