Bought the camera new slightly over a month ago, the camera is very easy to use and compact enough to carry around. Picture quality in bright light condition is acceptable but it turns grainy under low light situation. Problems: Defective CCD, I found an orange dot on all pictures taken with this camera under normal lighting condition, the orange dot is in fact a patch of 4 x 4 square of hot pixels(total of 16 hot pixels stuck in orange color). I do not understand how this camera can pass ...

Had the Z40 for 1 week, and took about 160 shots with it. Was seriously disappointed with the results so I returned it and chose an Olympus c765UZ as a more serious camera. Still need (want) a pocket point-and-shoot, though. Pros: Size, weight, build quality, design, screen size, start-up and shot-to-shot speed, battery life. Cons: Edge-to-edge focus poor (noticeably fuzzy in corners w/angle thru' to zoom), "soft" and oversaturated images and no saturation/sharpness adjustment, no explanation ...

I knew what I was getting when I purchased this camera. I wanted something very portable and easy to use that would yield decent photos at at least 4 megapixels. I am a physician and project pictures, make snapshot size photos and an occasional blow-up. I use the camera in my clinic for close-up and clinical photos (it's ALWAYS handy!) and I took it on vacation. It exceeded my expectations. The interface was simple, everything worked. The features are extensive and sophisticated for such a ...

This is a good camera to own in terms of its compactness & fast turn-on speed, other than that, am rather dissapointed with the image quality this little stuff can delievered. Resolution of LCD screen is poor, perhaps due to the larege size. Flash must definitely be on for dark shots.. otherwise, u will see a almost total blackness when u view it on ur computer. Frankly speaking, i still like my old olympus C300Z..altho' it is very bulky compared to this Casio Exilim. Would like casio to work ...

This is a very good camera for snapshots. Very small, with an amazingly larger LCD. It's extremely fast - you can switch it on, take a snapshot, shut it down and put it back in your pocket within 10 seconds! And the battery life is amazing. I have been using a number of different compact digital cameras (Fujifilm, Canon, Olympus and Nikon). Recently I need to buy another camera to replace my Olympus mju300. I picked this one for the size and the features. The image quality and color balance ...

I was really disappointed by the picture quality of this camera. I own a Canon PowerShot S20, a 4 year old camera with "only" 3.3 Megapixel and it beats that Casio in every way. Better Flash, better in dark areas, better in everything. The only positive thing about the Casio cameria is, that she is really very small and has a big (2 Inch) display at the back. But don't let yourself be decived by this, because what comes out is really not to be looked at. If you even ahve the slightest need ...
