Casio Exilim EX-Z57 Review


Lots of scene modes, Large 2.7-inch LCD

Few manual controls

The small EX-Z57 offers plenty of scene modes for the point-and-click crowd, and very long battery life, but users desiring manual controls will feel stifled.

Casio Exilim EX-Z57


At some point, you have to figure that the dominant digital photography trends of smaller cameras, bigger LCD screens, and more megapixels will reach a critical point, and we'll be left with some sort of tiny 12-megapixel monocle. Until that day...

Large, bright LCD screen; outstanding battery life; intelligent and eye-catching design; solid indoor photo quality.

Poor outdoor photo quality; no burst mode; few manual features.

The Casio Exilim EX-Z757 is a great-looking, 5-megapixel point-and-shoot with a big screen and so-so photo quality.

The $380 Casio Exilim EX-Z57 makes a fashion statement with its large 2.7-inch LCD and thin silver alloy chassis. The EX-Z57 weighs just 5.2 ounces, so it's light enough to carry comfortably in a shirt pocket. It sports a 3X optical zoom and shoots...

Owners Opinion: Casio Exilim EX-Z57 (databanka, 27 Mar 07)


I'm very impressed, for the money: 1) Rock Solid constuction. Access doors and body all solid metal, hinges and springs are strong. 2) Super Long battery life! I took it on vacation for a week and never had to charge it. I took 500+ shots. 3)...

No Problems. But screen could have higher resolution. There are no special shooting modes, like Canon. And the movie mode is really basic
