Casio Exilim Z-1000 Review

 

Announced back in April, the Casio EX-Z1000 was the first compact to break the 10 megapixel barrier, though it was soon followed by a cascade of models featuring what we presume to be the same (Sony) 10.3MP 1/1.8-inch CCD sensor. Headline-grabbing...

Excellent resolution and good edge-to-edge detail Excellent results at ISO 50 and 100 Slim all-metal body Superb build and finish Easy to use Well designed control and menu system Very fast startup, focus, shutter lag Lots of scene modes and some...

Noisy at ISO 400+, almost unusable at ISO 800 High Sensitivity (up to ISO 3200) mode very very low resolution (pixel-binning) Misleading 'image stabilization' mode simply increases the ISO Noise reduction starts to remove low contrast detail at ISO 200...

Casio was the company that first gave the world a 'consumer' digital camera, way back in 1995 (when most of the big names were still convinced film would live forever), and since the launch of the Exilim range in 2002 the brand has become synonymous...

Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z1000

 

Casio's 10-megapixel shooter sports a huge display and lots of useful features.

Large, bright LCD • Tons of scene modes • Very good photos

Needs a docking cradle to charge • Mediocre zoom • No memory card included

Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 review

 

Although Casio have been part of the digital camera market for years, their market share simply isn't large enough to spark a direct link between the brand name Casio and a digital camera. Nine out of ten times, the consumer connects Casio to...

With the introduction of the Casio Exilim EX Z1000, Casio have paved the way for the competition to break through the 8 Megapixel barrier. The segment of 10 Megapixel digital compact cameras is still devoid of any competition, which means that Casio...

What's it like to have a 10 megapixel compact?

 

When the Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 was announced in April of 2006, it was the world's first ten megapixel compact camera. It seemed like only yesterday when the one megapixel barrier had been broken, and now there was an inexpensive little point & shooter...

10.1 megapixel resolution, Terrific 2.8-inch wide LCD, 36 different modes, Very good battery life, Small and handy

Strangely subdued for the first 10 megapixel compact, Scratches easily, Cool "past movie" mode of other Casios is missing, 25 fps frame rate not quite lifelike, and no MPEG4
