Casio Exilim EX-H5 Review

 

Casio has created a very nice compact long-zoom digicam. The Exilim EX-H5 has a lot to offer, including a nice wide 10x optical zoom, sensor-shift IS system, 12-megapixels, some nice Burst mode options, and a Li-ion power source for only $179 US or...

Nice wide 10x optical zoom with 24mm extreme ; Captures nice 12-megapixel images outdoors ; Loads of great best Shot modes ; Cool Art filters in Playback, like Oil Painting ; Good ISO performance up to a max of about ISO 800 ; Record decent HD video...

ISO 1600 and 3200 look horrible ; Small White Balance issue under tungsten and/or fluorescent lighting ; Lack of labeling on the 4-way controller ; AF during video struggled at times in lower lighting ; Can't turn the instant review feature off, which...

Fast Snapshots,Good AF,Nice A/V.

 

I am really getting to love this camera as I come to speak it's language. Audio quality is at least good. I havn't used it much yet but I like the video quality so far. You have to set zoom before you turn on VIDEO as you cannot zoom while using it. It...

10X Zoom in compact size. Big display. Fast recycle to next shot. Fun to use. This camera takes really good close ups of small items. Colors are very nice. Stills of artwork are brilliant.Fast shutter

The Manual I downloaded was not simple to understand at first. But I had to read and work with the camera to understand what they were saying. When you set for a shot and then turn it off, it doesn't save your settings, but goes back to default

I love it, except in bright sunlight

 

It's a little heavy but actually for a 10x it's light. The controls did not seem natural at first but I was coming from an Olympus. Within 10 minutes though I worked my way through it and I like the controls much better than the Olympus. It remembers...

Casio Exilim EX-H5 review

 

There's a vast range of compact cameras with 10x and bigger zooms currently available. The H5 is one of three such models from Casio, sitting below the feature-packed FH100 and the 14-megapixel H15. It also happens to be the cheapest compact ultra-zoom...

A breakthrough price for a compact ultra-zoom camera, but photos and videos don’t stand up to close scrutiny.

Casio EXILIM EX-H5

 

This super-zoom compact packs a lot for the money

The Casio Exilim EX-H5 feels a well-built camera but is let down but the poor access to some features. It offers a lot – not least that super-zoom lens – for the price, though.
