Casio Exilim EX-S12 Review

 

A few months ago a we got a chance to see the Casio Exilim EX-S12 in action at the Children's Museum of Manhattan. Casio was there to engage both children and parents on how their new Dynamic Photo function works. Kids lined up with their parents down...

Sleek, stylish camera that doesn't require to much knowledge to take a good picture. Best Shots is nice feature that actually takes the hassle out of making your own settings for decent pic. Very good picture quality

What should have been a great feature – Dynamic Photo feature takes too many tries for it to actually work and when it finally does – you don't care anymore

Decent camera with bad movie video function. I have bought this camera mainly for its HD video function, but was totally disappointed. The video recording is restricted to 10 minutes length and the videos recorded in HD are out of sync with audio. The...

My cam made some weird sound sometimes during focusing, so I brought it back to store and got my money back. I am probably going to buy Ixus 100 IS instead ; This cam is not recommended for people, who want to use the HD video function often

I found EX-S12 does take unlimited movies so I happily got the camera and am very satisfied with it. It turns out the asterisk noting limited movie length on the specifications only appplies to the U-Tube mode. (All other movies are only limited to...

Looks great

 

I have used a similar Casio for a couple years until I lost it. Liked it so well I bought a similar model. The last was more the size of a credit card. This one is slightly thicker but smaller in circumference. I didn't like the size difference right...

Love It!

 

This is my 3rd Exlim and I have loved them all. I have upgraded b/c of increased megapixels and have always been satisfied. There are a lot of "Best Shot" options and the recording feature is a lot easier than in the 10 megapixel.
