Consumer review by:

Casio Exilim EX-S20U

 

This camera was given to me as a shooter to take along when mountain biking. It's nicely sized - it fits in a breast pocket for easy access. The downside? It doesn't take very good pictures. Anything more than ~10 feet away starts getting pretty fuzzy,...

Portable, USB cradle makes uploads easy. Shutter lag is pretty decent.

Lousy photo resolution

You'll love carrying this tiny Casio everywhere, and its pictures are surprisingly good for the camera's class.

Amazingly slim and compact ; fast ; light sensitivities from ISO 64 to ISO 500 ; custom white balance ; included USB dock

Lens vignetting ; fixed focus yields mediocre sharpness ; no zoom

I ordered this camera for my company's general use. I pick this unit after going through several models and narrowed down to the A75. Body Design: I like the solid hand grip. One can actually operate it with just one hand. The zoom lever accessed by...

Product Specifications

The EXILIM EX-S20 model is 10% smaller than its predecessors with no sacrifice to function, and retains a resolution of 2.0 million effective pixels. A number of added features such as the enhanced movie recording facility of up to 60 seconds, extended battery life of 85% over previous models, and the new scratch resistant acrylic panel monitor (LCD), to name but a few, re-emphasize EXILIM as the perfect partner to take anywhere, anytime. The EXILIM EX-S20 is a mere 11.3 mm thick, 83mm wide and 53mm high. Its stylish stainless steel case resists de-coloration and it's finished to a high gloss using CASIO's 'Ex Fine Blast Treatment'. Furthermore, a new lens protection cover has been added to help protect the lens from impact and dirt. This model incorporates a 1.6" TFT LCD screen with a digital interface, which produces vivid and clear images. Benefiting from CASIO's original design technology, the camera also features a new macro shooting function which allows images to be taken from as little as 30cm away, making the EX-S20 the first fixed-focus EXILIM model to be equipped with macro capabilities. The EX-S20 also incorporates CASIO's famous 'BESTSHOT' function, enabling users to set-up the camera for pre-defined scenarios. Once a scenarios has been chosen, such as portrait, scenery or night, users can then simply 'point and shoot', enabling even novices to capture perfect images every time. The camera has an internal memory of 10MB for storing images, this capacity can be increased by inserting a SD or MMC card into the EXILIM's external memory slot.
