Casio Exilim EX-Z250 (Silver)

 

If there is such a thing as a camera with too many automatic features, the 9-megapixel Casio Exilim EX-Z250 might be it. This ultracompact is brimming with detection, recognition, and preset shooting options to the point where the camera's Auto mode...

Slim, lightweight, and attractive; lots of auto-shooting features; wide-angle stabilized lens.

Slow performance; flat controls might frustrate some; soft photos.

Loaded with convenience features including a near-ludicrous 37 scene-shooting options, the Casio Exilim EX-Z250 is the auto-lovers' ultracompact.

Casio Exilim z250

 

The Casio Exilim z250 ($249.99 list) is one of the first Casio cameras to incorporate the company's new "Engine 3.0" processor, which lets the camera boot up quickly and decreases recycle time between shots. Also, the 3-inch LCD is easy on the eyes...

Records standard-definition video in widescreen (16:9) format. Sharp 3-inch screen. Low amounts of noise at high ISO levels. "Makeup level" is a fun feature

Soft, unevenly focused images. Noticeable shutter lag. Strong amount of color fringing

While the Exilim z250 has a lot going for it, including a sharp LCD screen and great video capture, its images have a green cast and are unevenly focused and soft around the edges.

Product Specifications

Taking incredible photos has never been easier, thanks to the Casio Exilim EX-Z250. The mechanical stabilizer and the EXILIM Engine 3.0 helps make every shot one for the album. With 9.1 megapixels, 4X optical zoom, and 3.0 inch LCD, you'll wonder how they fit everything into such a thin camera.
