Fits my needs as a carry-around perfectly. Small, soilidly built, aperture/shutter/manual modes, what's there not to like? I'm a D-SLR user, so I really appreciate having ASM modes in such a compact package (currently not much competition in the marketplace). Don't get me wrong; it works great as a full auto camera (i.e. Auto mode or any of the Scene modes) but if you have a good understanding of exposure settings, this camera will do wonders. Posted 2 sample photos in the Casio Talk forum ...

I use the EX-Z850 as my "carry it with me wherever I go" camera, and have a Nikon D200 for more serious stuff. This camera is absolutely marvelous - outstanding image quality, easy to use, phenomenal battery life. Great in point-and-shoot mode, but also easy to customize in endless ways. Probably the most important thing to know for people who have complained about image quality is that it appears that stock automatic exposure runs from 1/2 to a full stop overexposed. Casio should firmware ...

excellent overall image quality - sharp and detailed (i setted -1 sharpness and +1 saturation); colors are bright and the auto WB makes a good work. Also, i loaded the ISO 800-1600-3200 Best Shots- very useful (thanks to the author). A bit of overexposing but i can manage throug spotting (as well as i did in my previous ixus 50)and compensation level. Problems: Videos: not good as advertised - the HQ video suffers of stairstepping over straight lines. NQ have less stairstepping but more ...

I bought this camera for my daughter and I love it. I plan to purchase one for myself. The photos are crisp and clear. I never thought that I would want to buy a Casio Digital Camera. Very easy to use. Problems: None

This Camera is quite superb. Iv'e updated from a Minolta S304 which has served me in the past very well, and with which I have had no complaints at all with, but this Casio is a wonderful little camera. I accept that the video feature is not the best, but there again this isn't a video camera but in fact a P&S digital camera afterall. For anyone in the market for a handy little camera,with ease of use and a joy to use, I have no reservations in recommending this one highly. Superb absolutly ...

Camera is zip-a-dee-doo-dah in terms of start-up and shot-to-shot. After about 300+ pictures (50% flash) only ONE had red-eye, and only in ONE eye! And this is without using the red-eye-reduction feature/flash mode! The camera is JAM PACKED with features. When I first read in the forums that this camera might not be the best pick for someone who wants a true P&S, I was actually a tad intimidated and thought that that was me. But after reading all the good points that others mentioned, I ...

High potential but falls well short. Thought this would be the ideal mini camera for me because of it's manual features, great interface, superb LCD, and long battery life. But the bottom line is picture quality (or lack thereof). The photos look very "digital" and are way overprocessed. Even with contrast and exp comp turned down ALL highlights are clipped and then some. Oh one more thing, the video is a joke. I'm not picky when it comes to video but that was painful to watch. Exchanged ...

"Amazing camera with easy, fast menus and great pics!" I researched this camera a lot before I bought it and it is everything I was hoping it would be. It is a nice small size especially for having such a beautiful 2.5" screen. The zoom is fast, the lag time between shots is very short, and the menus respond immediately and are easy to learn. It has a beautiful metal casing and the buttons are large enough for most fingers. Also, the battery lasts a very long time which is a huge relief for ...
