In addition to being a compact and lightweight 5-megapixel camera with a 5X optical zoom, the Casio Exilim Pro EX-P505 takes passable 640×480 MPEG-4 video at 30fps. The video side has full use of the camera’s zoom, captures its audio through a built-in stereo microphone, and can even record the action 5 seconds before you press the shutter release. So are we at the point where one device can serve for both high-quality photos and decent video? Not quite. This model doesn’t perform well in low light, and its zoom mechanism is loud enough to be audible on some video shots. If you can live with its limitations, the small size and the 5X zoom could make this a convenient all-purpose camera.
