Casio EXILIM Pro EX-P700 Review
The seven megapixel four times zoom EXILIM Pro EX-P700 was announced on 25th August 2004, it is essentially a CCD upgrade to the silver bodied six megapixel EX-P600 announced seven months earlier. The P600 and P700 are Casio's first prosumer digital camera for quite some time and have a full range of manual controls. The compact all metal body has some unusual body design features most notably the rather busy camera front.
Five $700 seven megapixel digital cameras
This review was produced as part of a group test of five seven megapixel digital cameras, all of which offer similar features and all of which cost (at the time of posting these reviews; 2nd Dec 2004) around $700. The 'Compared to...' section of this review is shared with the other reviews. The five reviews (in alphabetical order):
- Canon PowerShot G6

- Olympus C-7000 / C-70 Zoom
- Pentax Optio 750Z
- Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V3

DPReview calibrate their monitors using Color Vision OptiCal at the (fairly well accepted) PC normal gamma 2.2, this means that on our monitors we can make out the difference between all of the (computer generated) grayscale blocks below. We recommend to make the most of this review you should be able to see the difference (at least) between X,Y and Z and ideally A,B and C.
