Poor button layout
I came from an older Kodak easy share. The Casio seems like a fine camera. Close up shots are very grainy much more so than the Kodak. Wide angle lens is a great feature. High speed video is also great. I took some video of humming birds and you could see the wings beating clear as day, very cool. Biggest complaint is the button layout. The power is a touch button on the top. You cant pick up the camera or pull it out of a case without accidentally tuning it on. The power button should be a slide switch. The back right side of the camera is covered with touch buttons. This area is where my thumb normally would be when taking pictures with one hand and even with two. I am always accidentally pressing random buttons. I would check the button layout before I buy another camera. I think the Kodak multifunction button worked much better.
