Good picture quality: good battery life; picture resoration option

It's been kicking around for a few months now, but if you were at all interested in how the Casio Exilim EX-S600 fares before you lay down your hundreds, you may want to take a gander at CNET's review of the device. As with most Exilims, you're not...

Casio Exilim EX-S600 (Silver)


Ultracompact design; a huge selection of scene modes; excellent movie capabilities.

Mediocre photo quality; no true burst mode; poor LCD visibility in bright light.

Though it's a stylish, easy-to-use ultracompact with good movie-capture capabilities, mediocre photos limit the Casio Exilim EX-S600's appeal.

Exilim EX-S600 Digital Camera - Silver


At just over 0.6-inch thick, Casio's Exilim EX-S600 is one of the thinnest cameras I've seen--it's small enough to slip into a shirt or pants pocket without causing any unsightly bulges. The model costs $350 (as of 2/6/06) and is available in three...

High sensitivity up to ISO 1600 Solid metal case and slim profile

Lack of a control dial makes operation a Manual focus is difficult to use

With its fairly good image quality and compact design, the EX-S600 would be a good choice for people who need a camera they can grab and take on the run

Exilim EX-S600


The Casio Exilim EX-S600 is a card-sized ultra slim camera measuring 3.54 x 2.32 x 0.63 inches, with a 3x optical zoom lens. In the US, it will be available in three flashy colors - silver, orange, and blue. The 6 megapixel camera is a follow-up to...

Very compact ; Stylish ; Stainless Steel construction ; Max ISO of 1600 ; 999 custom presets must be a record ; Controls are well placed

Terrible image quality ; Low-resolution LCD ; Vulnerable telescoping lens ; Software is limited, with an odd interface ; Lack of manual control

The EX-S600 isn't our style. It's very small and the design is bold, but the sad fact is that these are the most appealing things about the camera, and they won't help anyone take pictures. We appreciate that the camera is made of metal, but that's...

Product Specifications

The EXILIM CARD EX-S600 series is the next evolution in the popular line of ultra-slim card-sized high-resolution digital cameras of CASIO. In addition to 6 mega pixel photos, a major addition to this line is the EX-S600's ability to reduce camera shake instantaneously when recording quality MPEG-4 movies. The EX-S600's ability to take state-of-the-art movies instantly and easily adds to the versatility and fun of this powerful and high quality digital camera. The EX-S600 fits conveniently in any pocket to go wherever you go, ready to quickly capture special moments. No matter how spontaneous the situation, the EXILIM engine's Anti Shake DSP reduces blurring caused by shaky hands and/or moving subjects, and the Auto Macro and Quick Shutter functions ensure that photos are properly focused. In addition to enhanced resolution, the EX-S600's 3X zoom and increased battery life allowing up to 300 shots per battery charge provide significant photographic flexibility. The BEST SHOT menu includes the new Revive Shot, created specifically for taking digital pictures of old album photos. Revive Shot adjusts for obliquity as well as brightly refreshes faded colors. Whether framing a shot, reviewing images, or watching movies, everything is brighter when displayed on the adjustable 2.2 inch LCD-approximately twice as bright as previous models, making it ideal for outdoor use. Small enough to conveniently carry wherever you go, the EX-S600 has one-touch buttons that allow quick start up of the camera to view images and take pictures, as well as one for taking movies, all designed to quickly capture special moments. The EX-S600 connects easily to a TV or PC via the multi cradle, which also doubles as the battery charger. The EX-S600 continues the EXILIM CARD tradition of offering cutting-edge technology packed into a small, slim, and stylish body. With high quality photos, advanced movie recording capabilities, and a tremendous range of remarkable functions, CASIO once again exceeds expectations by providing a conveniently portable means of preserving memories to be cherished for a lifetime.
