Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 Review - Digital Camera Info

Jul 30, 2006 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z1000

Casio’s parade of metal-clad, ultra-compact snapshot cameras in the Exilim line has culminated in the Exilim EX-Z1000, a 10.1-megapixel mite of a camera.

The EX-Z1000 is not the leading camera its specs suggest it might be. It demonstrates why other manufactures haven’t made 10-megapixel ultra-compact cameras: 1) they can’t get good image quality out of such small sensors; 2) snapshooters don’t need that much resolution; 3) it’s a pain in the neck to store and download such large files.

Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 Review - Trusted Reviews

Jul 19, 2006 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z1000

Casio is the first company to launch a compact camera boasting a massive 10.1 megapixel CCD, equal in resolution to a mid-level digital SLR. At the time of writing, the Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 is currently the most powerful digital compact camera in the world.

Despite, and not because of, the megapixel willy-waving, the EX-Z1000 is a superb camera. It possesses first class build quality, brisk performance, outstanding image quality and an innovative and easy-to-use control system that makes it ideal for a first-time user. As to whether you really need 10 megapixels, only you can decide.

Casio Exilim EX-Z600 Review - Photography Review

Jul 14, 2006 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z600

Simple on the outside but packed with hidden functions.

On initial inspection the Casio Exilim EX-Z600 is about as point-and-shoot as you can get.

However, pressing the MENU and BS (Best Shot) keys reveals a ton of options. The BS menu accesses 33 different scene modes, such as the self-explanatory: Portrait, Scenery, Sports, Flower, etc. And the not so self-explanatory: Children, Party, Food. Each Best Shot mode offers an explanation. Select the “Scenery” mode and move the zoom key and it the LCD reads “Infinity focus, Hard sharpness, High saturation”. Sure would have been nice if they included the same information in the manual, though. You can also save you’re own “Best Shot” mode settings.

This is not a ground-breaking camera. It is, overall, one of the better point-and-shoots. The nice thing about the EX-Z600 is that you can count on it to simply and quickly produce a quality image. It’s pretty “idiot proof.”

Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 Review - PhotographyBlog

Jul 12, 2006 | Category: Casio Exilim EX-Z1000

The Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 is a frustrating camera. It is one of the best-built, well thought-out, feature-rich and quick compact digital cameras that I’ve ever reviewed. On the other hand, the 10 megapixel sensor is a liability, producing images that look good at first glance, but which upon closer inspection suffer from noise at ISO 200 and faster, purple fringing in many shots, including situations where you wouldn’t expect to find it, and almost completely ineffective anti-shake and high-sensitivity modes.

In short, I thoroughly enjoyed using the EX-Z1000, but didn’t like the images that it produced, which is possibly the worst kind of disappointment. Unfortunately it also proves that you can’t squeeze 10 megapixels onto such a small sensor without creating some serious image quality issues.
