Casio Exilim EX-S10


America's Next Top Camera Model

Small, attractive form factor. Bright, big 2.7-inch LCD. Intuitive menu-navigation. Fires photos almost exactly with the shutter press. Face-recognition mode sets exposure on people.

Average image detail. Object textures blur together. Noise appears in shadows and throughout indoor photos

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 / DMC-TZ20 First Impressions Review


The Panasonic DMC-ZS10 is a compact ultrazoom that manages a pretty good balance between portability and features. Sure, not all the features (like 3D mode) are well-implemented, but they managed to design a camera that is simple enough for beginners,...

The Panasonic DMC-ZS10 (known as the TZ20 here in Japan's CP+ show) is a highly portable camera that manages to pack in a lot of zoom power, some decent specs, and enough features to make it at least slightly enticing. We liked the GPS functionality,...

Casio Exilim EX-S10 (blue)


Arriving six years after Casio first introduced its slimmer-than-slim Exilim line, the 10-megapixel EX-S10 launched as the "thinnest 10-megapixel" digital camera on the market. For those of you who want a carry-anywhere point-and-shoot camera, that's a...

Slim design; features not often found on cameras in this class/price range; convenient onscreen menu; live histogram; broad Best Shot options; peppy performance.

Tiny controls; impossible to read icons/text on buttons and camera body; soft photos; moderate zoom focal range.

Although its tiny size and just-average image quality may be dealbreakers for some, the Casio Exilim EX-S10 comes equipped with tons of features that will appeal to snapshooters who want an easy-to-use camera that delivers more than simply...

Casio EX-S10


The camera's stylish body, measuring 3.71" x 2.15" x .59" thin (.54" at the thinnest part) is the product of Casio's relentless pursuit of thinness. It is finished according to two design requirements - a high quality feel created by the stainless...

This new camera's thinner, smaller body was made possible without sacrificing high resolution image quality using a newly developed 1/2.3 inch CCD. Its high resolution images can be used to create beautiful prints even when enlarged or when the image...

Casio Exilim Card EX-S10


Casio offers a big display in a sleek package, but the image quality isn't quite up to snuff.

Slim and stylish design ; Generally fast performance ; Nice 2.7-inch LCD

Many shots were soft or out of focus ; Unable to capture fast action ; Poor Macro mode ; Herky-jerky video clips

If slimness, style, and portability were the only important aspects of digital cameras, then the Casio Exilim Card EX-S10 would win hands down. Unfortunately, while it has some nice features—including an excellent LCD and fast overall performance—the...

Casio Exilim S10 First Impressions Review


249 price, YouTube video, Lots of editing, Picture effects

Worst multi-selector ever, Weak flash, Cheap 3x lens, Painfully small controls, Slow Burst mode, Jack on bottom

The Casio Exilim EX-S10 has a lot of cool features and a very sexy body, but a few very unfortunate characteristics. The ability to drag and drop into iTunes will be convenient and the YouTube uploading program will save a few minutes for budding...

Casio EXILIM CARD EX-S10 Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!


Promoted as the world's smallest and thinnest 10 megapixel digital camera, the Casio S10 has a 3x optical zoom lens with a 36 - 108mm equivalent focal length coupled to a 1/2.3 inch CCD. The S10's stylish body, measuring just 94.2 mm wide, 54.6 mm high...

Thin, attractive design ; Large, high resolution LCD ; Excellent Shutter button, Zoom ring, Power button design ; Flash intensity can be adjusted from +2 to -2 in whole increments ; H.264 video and AAC audio codec don't need to be converted for iPod...

World's worst manual for any product ever ; Hard-to-read icons on buttons ; Face detection wasn't reliable ; High-speed Continuous mode shoots only 2-Mp images ; Many features just weren't up to snuff ; Weak flash ; Autofocus failed in low light ; Only...

The Casio EX-S10's Auto Shutter function automatically records the moment of a smile or the instant when hand shake ceases, using motion blur detection technology. The camera also offers iTunes-compatible H.264 video which utilizes the AAC audio codec...

Casio Exilim EX-S10 Review


I was pretty excited when I found out I would be reviewing the Casio Exilim S10, "the world's smallest and thinnest 10.1 megapixel camera." Encased in stainless steel and decked out in four color choices, it looks and feels like a great accessory.

Good general image quality Accurate auto white balance Super Clear LCD is super clear

No optical/mechanical image stabilization Horrible user manual Weird focusings settings

Besides being the "smallest and thinnest 10.1 megapixel model," the S10 is also equipped with a 3x optical zoom lens, 2.7-inch wide Super Clear LCD, Auto Shutter, face detection and iTunes-compatible H.264 video. The S10 also has Best Shot, a series of...

Product Specifications

Casio's EXILIM series was born with the appearance in 2002 of a "wearable card camera" - a digital camera with a very slim form. The new EXILIM Card EX-S10 maintains all of the powerful functionality of the cameras that were later developed in that line (high pixel count, zoom functionality, LCD monitor, photo functions, etc.) but it also embodies a return to a stylish thin form and a strong design presence.
