Casio Exilim EX-Z850 review
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 (see " EX-Z850 - Call me a happy customer" thread). Other samples can be seen at:
A common complaint is the image quality of the movies. In all fairness, this isn't a high def DV, but the "jaggies" ae still on the heavy side when compared to the output from previous Casios.
One minor gripe: there are only 2 different aperture settings available at each zoom level. It'd be nice if I coud choose the smallest aperture at any focal length.
