Casio Exilim EX-Z150 Point-and-Shoot Camera

 

This cute Casio point-and-shoot camera is easy to use, but suffers from shutter lag and limited focusing abilities.

Huge 3-inch diagonal LCD ; Very easy to use

Slow to focus and shoot ; No zoom while shooting video

The Casio Exilim EX-Z150 was fun to shoot with. Its wide-angle lens and big screen were a joy, but the camera's shutter lag and slow focus were handicaps that made me use a lot more brain power ("Will this be in focus?") than I'd prefer when taking...

The slim, 8-megapixel Casio Exilim EX-Z150 point-and-shoot camera aims for the teen-friendly sweet spot of slick looks and functionality. For $200, this little camera comes in a variety of bright candy colors, in addition to black and silver. It also...

Huge 3-inch diagonal LCD ; Very easy to use

Slow to focus and shoot ; No zoom while shooting video

The Exilim EX-Z150 is a cute, easy-to-use camera, but it's limited by its slow speed and spotty quality.

Casio Exilim EX-Z150

 

A solid point-and-shoot camera with all the right connections.

Small, light, good looking, Semiâ ; euro ; wide angle 4X zoom lens, YouTube, eBay capture modes

A slow shooter with no burst mode, Long shutter lag with flash on, No video autofocus or zoom

In movie mode, videos of the same subjects (shot at 640 x 480 at 30 frames per second) were smooth and detailed, with excellent quick response exposure. A few videos were filmed at 320 x 240 at 15 fps, and were also surprisingly good. However, the...

Budget Casio Camera Fat With Talent

 

Hey, Casio: Time to call Jenny Craig. Your formerly slim, sexy Exilim cameras have ballooned up like William Shatner. Witness the EX-Z150, a chunky,

Wide-angle lens just plain kicks ass, and 4x optical zoom gets you close. One-touch video recording and YouTube-upload software make this the perfect camera for Paris/Lindsay/Bigfoot sightings

Too thick and heavy to leave in your pocket all day. Small, stiff control pad. Snapshot colors lack pop. Battery must be removed for charging

Casio Exilim EX-Z150 Review

 

Portability and affordability are the name of the game with the tiny Casio Exilim EX-Z150.

These images were taken through a thick window at a slow speed by holding very still. This is one of those situations where auto white balance is used and one hopes for the best.

Casio Exilim EX-Z300 Review

 

Casio's slim, stylish Exilim EX-Z300 serves up a huge number of auto-exposure shooting modes, class-comparable resolution, and a bigger helping of shooting speed than most ultracompacts.

Uses SD cards ; Quick AF and minimal shutter lag ; Fun to use

Way too many Best Shot presets ; Awkward button placement for Make-Up and Movie Modes ; Small, touchy d-pad

On the surface, then, the EX-Z300 looks and sounds like a lot of other cameras in this class, but some unique features and options may help set it apart

Digital Camera Magazine - Casio Exilim EX-Z150

 

It's becoming difficult to up the ante in today's crowded market for ultra-compact consumer cameras. Just a few months ago Casio introduced the Exilim EX-Z100 and Z200 to the US market (in January of 2008) -- a pair of ultra-compact 10-megapixel...

Fewer scene modes, No 848 x 480 movies

However, according to the specs included in the press release, there is no high-res wide-format 848 x 480 pixel video mode and you must do with standard 640 x 480 vidclips. Missing seems to be MPEG-4 H.264 video format/compression that reduces MPEG-4...

Product Specifications

Whether you're on holiday, at a party or spending time with your family - people are particularly popular subjects for a photo. It's always a pity when faces turn out blurred on a picture. The face detection function offers the perfect solution, recognizing the individual faces or even entire groups, and automatically applying the best possible setting. It has never been easier to upload your own videos to YouTube: with the EX-Z150, you can film your most memorable moments directly in a video size and quality optimized for YouTube! The combination of the 28 mm wide-angle design and 4x optical zoom makes the EX-Z150 the perfect companion for every occasion - you have plenty of scope to take photos, be it of your loved ones, beautiful sights or romantic sunsets. Whether you're in a small room, a car or on a ferries wheel - the 28 mm focal distance enables you to capture a larger area, allowing you to snap more of your friends for posterity in a close-up group photo, and much more. Does the wrong date appear, because you have changed the settings without realizing it? Or was the time on the clock not adapted to the local time when traveling? The date edit function has the perfect solution to precisely these problems. The date and time can be corrected easily after the photo has been taken. With trimming you can define sections of a photo while they are still in the camera and save them as separate shots. And so, for example, you can just cut a person's face and print it out as a photo - even without a computer.
