Does the Exilim perform as well as it looks? Find out now

The ultimate small camera -- it's just plain cool ; Robust operation ; Built-in memory plus a SD/MMC slot ; Decent photo quality for a tiny camera ; Many controls, even manual white balance ; Handy dock for photo transfer / battery charging

No optical zoom (can't see how they'd do it) ; No sound recording on EX-S1 model (get the EX-M1 for that) ; No macro mode ; No tripod mount ; Buttons on top of camera plus the four-way switch need a redesign ; Pricey

Tiny Casio Exilim EX-S1 surprises with features, quality!


In the market for miniature, credit-card sized cameras, nothing comes close to the Casio Exilim for ...

LCD and flash in credit-card size, carry-anywhere capability, surprising picture quality

Short battery life, tiny four-way joystick controller, useless standard manual

Expert review by:

Casio Exilim EX-M1


The Casio Exilim EX-M1 exudes must-have appeal, thanks to its card-sized dimensions and sleek looks. But the real clincher lies in its integrated MP3 player and affordable sub-S$600 (US$350) pricing.

Super-slim, ultra-compact design ; good battery life ; intuitive user interface ; well-exposed images ; firm grip

Limited printed documentation ; no macro mode ; no optical zoom ; requires cradle for charging and file transfer ; no toggle button to choose between internal memory and SD/MMC media
