Casio Exilim EX-Z1050


Being an ultra-compact, the Z1050 is easily pocketable, considering its small size of 91 x 57 x 24 mm. The lithium-ion battery keeps the weight light at 165 g.

The battery lasted for a good 100+ shots, in a mix of with flash and without. Without a doubt, the Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 is one of the better ultra-compact cameras in the market, and its price of Rs 17,000 makes it even more attractive. It may be...

Casio Exilim EX-Z1050


Casio isn't the biggest digital camera maker, but the company turns out decent, affordable aim-and-forget models. You won't find a D-SLR or mega zoom among its line-up. Casio is all about small and compact. This brings us to the Exilim Zoom EX-Z1050–a...

Affordable 10.1MP point-and-shoot digicam

No optical image stabilization; very poor LCD screen

Casio uses a newer Exilim Engine 2.0 to speed up the processing and it handles 10MP files fairly well.

Exilim EX-Z1050


At first glance, the Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 looks like every other digital camera and adds funky color choices; pink, blue, silver, and black. Look a little closer though, and you'll see that it offers 10.1 megapixels - a spec that's plastered on almost...

Accurate white balance ; Decent handling of noise up through ISO 400 ; Comes in cool colors ; Lots of picture effects ; Very portable ; Lots of flash options ; Tracking auto focus

Poor color accuracy ; LCD resolution and limited viewing angle ; No power adapter ; Tiny buttons ; Lengthy menus ; No software for Macs ; Horrible burst mode

Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z1050 (Pink)


At nearly an inch thick and weighing 5.4 ounces, the Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 isn't quite the slimmest member of the Casio Exilim series of digital cameras. It is, however, one of the simplest. Unlike most other Exilims, the EX-Z1050 lacks both mode dial...

The Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 10-megapixel camera has solid image quality, a very fast low-resolution Burst mode, and simple controls.

Terrible screen.

If it weren't for the poor LCD, the Exilim EX-Z1050 would be a pretty good camera.

Camera Test: Casio Exilim EX-Z1050


At first glance, the 10.1-megapixel 3x zoom f/2.8-5.1 (38-114 35mm equiv zoom) Casio EX-Z1050 ($230 street), available in silver, blue, black or pink, is almost indistinguishable from Casio's EX-Z1000, but the camera's performance has seen a nice...

To say that the compact camera space is crowded is an understatement. With so much competition, the EX-Z1050 has a lot of work to do to come out on top. How does it perform? Find out now

Very good photo quality (though see issues below) ; Compact, stylish metal body ; Large, widescreen 2.6" LCD display; good low light/outdoor visibility (though see issues below) ; Snappy performance ; Tons of Best Shot modes (and I mean it) ; Lots of...

Photos and movies are on the soft side; redeye a big problem ; Low LCD resolution ; No optical viewfinder ; Weak flash ; Tiny amount of built-in memory ; Plastic tripod mount; can't swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod ; No USB 2.0 High Speed...

The Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 isn't one of those cameras that I'm jumping up and down about, but it's still good enough to earn my recommendation. It offers a ton of features, very good photo quality, and snappy performance for a street price of around...

Casio Exilim EX-Z1050


The Casio Z1050 looks like almost every other point-and-shoot with its boxy measurements and extending 3x optical zoom lens. But the Z1050 has something most other slim cameras don't: 10.1 megapixels. This Exilim has purely Automatic modes, few Manual...

The camera has a large LCD screen on a compact body, leaving almost no room for anything else. Thus there is no mode dial and the limited number of buttons are tiny. Because there is no mode dial, all Exposure modes are grouped in a menu. There are 36...

Read a digital camera review of the 10 megapixel Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 point and shoot.

The Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 follows up the older Z1000 with the same 10.1 megapixels and lackluster 3x optical zoom lens. The monstrous resolution is the headlining feature on the camera, but its features are otherwise quite tame. The Z1050 is still just...

Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 Digital Camera Review


Exilim EX-Z1050, launched on January 2007, is one of the slimmest compact digital cameras currently on the market, nearly as small as Kodak EasyShare V705. Also lightweight due to the aluminium body, it really fits all pockets. What this camera lacks...
