Let me start out by saying that I loved using the Casio EX-Z750. The small size, speed, and 7-megapixel CCD add up to a more than competent package. Casio was one of the first camera manufacturers to realize that they needed to improve camera responsiveness. They’ve built a niche for themselves with fast, compact cameras with great features. I’d been hearing great things about Casio digital cameras for a couple of years and I’ve been anxious to try one. The EX-Z750 was my first chance
The main components of the Casio Exilim EX-Z750 are the 2.5-inch LCD display, the fast processor, and the 7.2-megapixel sensor. The camera has lots of other useful and fun features but the sensor and speed were most important to me. The EX-Z750 has a very wide range of exposure controls including full manual and excellent, consumer-friendly exposure modes. The Best Shot mode includes 30 different “scene modes.” These are preset programs for photo subjects like Portrait, Children, Pet, Scenery, Night Scene, and Fireworks. Each one has an illustrative image and description to give the photographer an idea of what it will do. The Casio Best Shot Mode offers photographers creative options for taking better pictures as well as helping them understand how the camera works. There’s also a Best Shot mode for video recording.
The EX-Z750 lens is a standard 3x optical zoom with a variable aperture of f/2.8-5.1. There are three auto focus options. Spot AF uses one focus point in the center, Multi uses nine focus points to identify the subject and focus for you, and Free allows you to move one focus point to any part of the frame that you want. I had the camera set for “Quick Shutter” which allows the photographer to take a picture without achieving perfect focus. This allows you to shoot quickly, even if the camera hasn’t been able to focus yet - another example of Casio’s attention to camera speed. For low-light shooting the Auto focus Assist light helps ensure you get your subject in focus. In Manual or Snapshot mode, exposure variables are selected with the “Set” button and controlled with the zoom lever.
