Casio Exilim EX-750 Review
Announced just before PMA in February 2005, the EX-Z750 is the latest addition to the top of Casio's popular 'Exilim' line of ultra-compact point-and-shoot cameras. It joins models such as the Canon SD500 and Sony DSC-P200 in one of the most fiercely competitive sectors of the market and offers by far the largest feature set in its class, with a plethora of 'Best Shot' scene modes (30 in total), full photographic control, MPEG-4 movies, in-camera special effects and basic image editing and long battery life. So is this the 7 megapixel, 3x zoom compact by which others will be judged or an over-specified novelty piece? Read on to find out...
