Casio Exilim EX-P600 review
the UK is probably the best place to buy this camera at the moment, with only 191.99 pounds, you can have it from Amazon.co.uk. That's why I rated "value of money" as 4.5;
Every detail of this gadget is almost perfect, it almost has every thing I want from a digital camera. Full metal body, full manual control, fast response and shutter.........
However I was so let down by the most important thing of a decent camera, ie. the image quality! I just wonder how these camera companies squeesed so many pixels into such a small CCD, making these Hi-pixel cameras so noisy that we can't even use them in some circumstances!
The night-shot and indoor pics from this camera are horrible! They are not only noisy but also 'polluted' by a lot of dots with odd colours (red & blue, maybe). EVEN AT ISO 50 sometimes!
Above iso 200, it's almost unusable.
I have a samsung digimax V3, it has the same size CCD as EX-P600, 1.8". The images are much more acceptable, though many people may not consider Samsung to be a capable digital camera maker.
Ex-P600's auto-focus is amazingly fast, but some pics are just not correctly focused and appear to be a bit blur. Within 40cm from your objects, the chance of getting out-of-focus pics is even greater.
I think I'm going to return it to Amazon within these few days, though I love it a lot, especially the the BestShot- Coupling Shot mode.
Now I am a bit scared by cameras with more than 4M pixles!
