Casio QV-R62 Review - CNET Reviews

May 22, 2005 | Category: Casio QV-R62

Casio QV-R62Taking the resolution lead in Casio’s QV series, the 6-megapixel QV-R62 comes outfitted with newbie-friendly features such as Casio’s signature Best Shot scene modes and a pop-up help system. This nicely priced camera is easy to use and a good choice for snapshooters who want a little more from their camera than just the basic point-and-shoot. The Casio QV-R62 lags behind the competition in some ways–its Movie mode doesn’t record sound and its shot-to-shot time isn’t great, but if you’re more likely to be shooting a tree than a car race, this won’t be a problem.

Casio Exilim EX-Z750 Review - DCRP Review

May 22, 2005 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z750

Casio Exilim EX-Z750The Casio Exilim EX-Z750 is a very nice 7 Megapixel ultra-compact camera with a few annoying flaws. First, the good points. The Z750 is compact, made of metal, and is well constructed. It fits easily in your pocket and can go anywhere you do. The camera has a large 2.5″ LCD display and a tiny optical viewfinder. While the screen is big, the resolution is not, and low light visibility is not very good either. Camera performance is excellent. The Z750 starts up in just one second and focusing, shutter lag, and shot-to-shot speeds are all very good. The camera’s AF-assist lamp helped it focus well in low light situations. Battery life is superb compared to most other ultra-compacts.

Image quality is very good if you tweak a few settings. The biggest problem in this area is the very oversaturated colors in nearly all of my photos. Thankfully there’s a workaround — change the saturation setting in the record menu to -1. And while I’m at it, I’d also suggest reducing the sharpness to the same number, as photos were a little too sharp for my eyes. Redeye was also a big problem, as is usually the case with ultra-compact cameras. Aside from that, the news is all good: exposure was accurate, purple fringing levels were low, and noise levels were comparable to other cameras in this class.

Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700 Review - CNET Reviews

May 22, 2005 | Category: Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700

Casio EX-P700 Exilim ProThe Casio EX-P700 Exilim Pro follows in the midrange enthusiast footsteps of the company’s well-received P600, sporting a new black chassis and a seventh megapixel. Otherwise, and to the P700’s credit, the two cameras are largely similar; they have the same extensive feature set, they capture equally pleasing images, and both feature the surprisingly pocketable design that made the P600 a joy to tote around. However, though its performance is quite comparable to that of other 7-megapixel models in its class, the P700 doesn’t quite match the sprightly response of its predecessor. In addition, Casio still hasn’t addressed the P600’s subpar video capabilities.

Casio Exilim EX-Z750 Review - Steve’s Digicams

May 14, 2005 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z750

Casio Exilim EX-Z750The Casio Exilim EX-Z750 is the top of the line Exilim model from Casio that includes many of the features found on previous models like the EX-Z57, but adds a more resolute 7-megapixel imager, handy rotating mode dial, focus-assist lamp, and brings back the optical viewfinder. This “ultra-compact” digicam is about the size of a deck of cards, and is packed with features that are usually found on larger and more expensive models. It offers a wide variety of exposure modes; the automatic Snapshot and Scene modes for the beginner and the Aperture Priority, Shutter-speed Priority and Manual modes to satisfy the more experienced photographer.

Casio Exilim Pro EX-P505 Review - DCRP

May 02, 2005 | Category: Casio Exilim Pro EX-P505

Casio Exilim Pro EX-P505Casio Exilim Pro EX-P505 performance is above average in almost all areas, except in low light. The camera had a horrible time focusing, and you couldn’t see anything on the LCD either. The camera has a very nice 1 cm macro mode and the movie mode is truly top notch. Video quality is excellent, sound is recorded in stereo, and there are several different ways in which you can record movies. Mac users be warned: you’ll have to work a little in order to playback the videos. And I’ll be damned if I know how to get them into iMovie or Final Cut Pro. One thing that surprised me about the P505 is that Casio left out a burst mode. You will, however, find manual controls plus tons and tons of scene modes (even in movie mode).
