I have been using this camera for a month and continue to find its results and features outstanding. Your grandmother could use it immediately in point and shoot mode, while more advanced users can switch to full manual where it offers a full choice of f stops and shutter speeds all the way to 16 seconds, plus control over nearly all other parameters too. Using this camera is easy. It is exceptionally fast between shots, allows much faster review of results than most, menus are well ...

Excellent Service from Casio Since submitting review about the camera a few days ago I lost the zoom button by allowing the camera to swing around my neck on the strap. I contacted Casio(UK) by email and 4 days later received a free-of-charge replacement. I am impressed by Casio for their service support even for what is now an old model and at no charge too!

This is great as a point and shoot camera in most conditions. After owning it for a while keen photographers will discover an amazing array of controls which are lacking on much more expensive cameras eg full range of selectable apertures in aperture priority mode. The camera exhibits truly amazing coverage of subject brightness range and I have produced poster sized prints using external post processing software to smooth the images. This is proving to be a difficult camera to upgrade ...

I ended up trashing the Camera, see my previous comment. After the initial repair for the tripod tread and the separating case, (almost $100,00 Can) the camera quit after one picture. I could not shut it down, nor did any function work any longer. I send it back to the Casio Service center, where it was repaired in the first place. During Transit the extended Lens got bent (broken?) and the Zoom button dislodged. Casio claimed I manhandled the camera..... At this point I gave up, asked the ...

I've taken lots of good pictures with it. See http://community.webshots.com/user/tom_tex for pics of Venice, Rome, Florence, Austria, Washington DC, flowers... After a year I got rechargeable NIMH batteries and the camera is 500% more useable. With alkaline batteries you can't use the LCD for more than a couple pictures. Problems: I have taken many nice pictures with it but too many of them don't work because of focus problems. This is mostly at night. It wouldn't be bad if the manual ...

Have used this camera since Dec. 1999. The images in good light are excellent. In photos I shot at my daughter's wedding compared to the photographer's proNikon camera, mine were sharper and more detailed as well as more pleasing to the eye. I found this amazing. I make 8x10 prints on an Epson 780 printer from this camera and they too are quite outstanding. Problems: Low light focus is a contant problem. The flash is quite good within its range but the auto focus can sabotage an image in low ...

I have had this camera now since Sep 2000 with a Microdrive. It has many Features, the Panorama is especially usefull, the 30 sec AVIs are fun as well. With the Microdrive, it eats regular batteries - so the Sanyo 1600 are very helpfull and get you through a day of heavy picturetaking.. Problems: Zoom Button fell off, Lens Cover got stuck once -> the construction is a bit flimsy

I owned this camera since nov. 2000. The image quality is excellent for a 2 mega pixels camera, the lcd screen is very good. But the sliding lens cover is not a good idea for the camera. The image distorsion is evident with the wide angle setting (default). Problems: Cover switch was repair after 6 month of operation.
