Casio Exilim EX-S5 (blue)

 

The Casio Exilim EX-S5 is capable of producing very good photos without a handful of caveats typical of budget-priced compact cameras. It looks nice, feels well constructed (except for a flimsy battery compartment door), is easy to use, and has a...

Slim, pretty design; very good feature-to-price ratio; above average photo quality for its class.

Long shutter lag.

A budget ultracompact worth buying, the Casio Exilim EX-S5's only real issue is shutter lag.

Fancy metallic accents, slim + light, rechargeable battery with good life, customizable display, easy default capture settings as well as advanced fine tune controls, zoom slider rightly positioned, one-touch video record button, mutable sounds

Product Specifications

The EX-S5 is a sleek and sturdy 10.1-megapixel camera priced to travel with you everywhere. Just by pressing the movie button, widescreen movies can be recorded with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The camera also offers YouTube Capture Mode, which records and saves movies at the ideal settings for uploading to YouTube. As well as the rectangular focusing frame usually displayed on the LCD monitor, you can choose designs such as a heart or a butterfly for the frame design. When the camera is correctly focused, a beautiful heart can be displayed, and when correct focus is not achieved the heart pattern breaks up. This makes it easy to ensure correct focus, and it is fun, too.
