Casio Exilim EX-Z600

 

Ultra compact cameras are usually considered under-performers. While compact cameras are the ones with all the great features like manual focus/exposure, more shot settings and better zooms, the ultra-compacts usually end up cutting out on some of...

The overall performance of the Z600 was impressive to say the least. It did have its share of negative points, but the overall performance far exceeds most other ultra-compact cameras available in the market today. Spending Rs. 17,995 (MRP) for a 6...

Given the camera's small 3.5-inch-by-2.2-inch-by-0.8-inch body and large LCD, it's no surprise that the EX-Z600 has few dedicated control buttons. A tiny and low-profile power button sits on the camera's narrow top ledge, next to a small shutter...

Small; responsive; broad feature set for point and shoot; affordable.

Blur-reduction features result in excessive noise; generally average image quality; no optical viewfinder.

Although the image quality and performance of the stylish and ultracompact Casio Exilim EX-Z600 are decent for a snapshooter, watch out for image noise at high ISO settings--it quickly and easily gets out of control, turning pictures into mush.

Exilim EX-Z600 Digital Camera

 

Casio's $299 (as of 6/15/06) Exilim EX-Z600 point-and-shoot is compact, yet has a large, 2.7-inch LCD. The screen isn't quite as sharp as the 3-inch display on Nikon's Coolpix S6, which I reviewed at the same time, but it is significantly brighter (an...

Large LCD and lots of control features Well-designed zoom lever

Zoom function could be more precise Image quality could be better

If a low price, long battery life, and a big and bright LCD top your list of camera needs, the EX-Z600 is an excellent fit. If only this camera came with a more extensive software package and delivered higher image quality, it would be even more enticing

The EXILIM EX-Z600 Zoom offers 6.0 megapixels of resolution, a 3x optical zoom lens and an extra large 2.7-inch Super Bright LCD, all housed in a slim, durable, and pocket-sized package. The Z600's Super Life Battery now has an even longer battery...

If a low price, long battery life, and a big, bright LCD are at the top your camera needs, the Casio EX-Z600 is an excellent fit. If this camera came with a more extensive software package and delivered higher image quality, it would be more enticing.

Large LCD ; Great battery life ; Built-in perspective correction ; Compact ; Reasonable price ; LCD is bright and easy to see in daylight ; Convenient Best Shot button

Some controls are hard to use ; No optical viewfinder ; Mediocre image color, exposure, and sharpness

While informal shots I took with the 6-megapixel EX-Z600 looked pretty good, the camera's images earned below-average scores for color accuracy and sharpness in detailed lab tests. The EX-Z600 also scored poorly in exposure accuracy tests, compared...

Casio Exilim EX-Z600 Pro Review

 

Are you a minimalist wannabe like me? In other words, someone that likes to pretend that you have few things but in reality hoard a ton of stuff in your closets? Then the Exilim EX-Z600 might be the camera for you - simple on the outside but packed...

Big, bright LCD screen, Pocket-sized, Lightweight, Very little shutter lag, Image stabilization, Quick startup, Great battery life, Good skin tone

Case not included, Terrible instruction manual, ON/OFF button a bit small, Pointless digital zoom, Movie mode is hard to find, Noisy images at high ISO settings

When evaluating point-and-shoot digital cameras I always adjust my image quality expectations. The Casio Exilim EX-Z600 does nothing to change my point of view and that's fine. This is not a ground-breaking camera. It is, overall, one of the better...

Casio Exilim EX-Z600 Digital Camera Review

 

With a Super Bright LCD and long battery life, the compact Casio Exilim EX-Z600 has a lot to recommend it.

Nice, bright LCD ; Nice styling and size (available in silver and black) ; Easy to use ; Very good battery life

Noisy indoor images ; Zoom mechanism pretty loud ; Can't use optical zoom during movie capture

The quick operation, bright LCD, and battery life of the Casio Exilim EX-Z600 are enough to put it on your list for consideration if you're looking for a compact, easy to use, auto-only digital camera. The image quality is good and with a little...

Best pictures from any digital camera I've own

 

I have own this camera for 2 years. I am still very happy with it. I am not new to photography. I have own many different kinds of cameras and have been using 35MM SLR for over 40 years. I have own 2 canon PS digital which I thought was great until I...

Takes great pictures. 6 meg is more than enough for most purpose. So many features for so little money. Good in low light situation

Could do a better job with anti shakes. But what could one expect from digital ISO correction? I wish it had a longer zoom

Product Specifications

The EX-Z600 offers 6.0 megapixel high-resolution photos in a stylish, compact, and pocket-sized package. The extra large 2.7-inch Super Bright LCD is approximately three times brighter than the previous EX-Z500 model, producing an impressive luminance of 1200 candelas per square meter. This significant advancement makes the LCD easier to see, especially when viewed in the sunny outdoors. In auto mode, the LCD automatically adjusts to the brightness of the surrounding environment. The EX-Z600's Super Life Battery now has an even longer battery life, supporting a staggering 550 shots per charge. The EXILIM line is a culmination of CASIO's core technologies of miniaturization and digital technology resulting in a smaller, higher resolution camera - the established trend leader in stylish, quick responding, large LCD, and long battery life digital cameras. The EX-Z600 includes the latest version of the EXILIM Engine, featuring the Anti Shake DSP, which along with the Auto Macro and Quick Shutter functions, considerably reduces the incidence of blurred photos due to moving subjects or shaking hands. New to the EX-Z600 is the Rapid Flash function, which enables three consecutive high-speed flash photos in only one second, allowing you to completely capture the moment without losing precious seconds between shots. The EX-Z600 includes Revive Shot, used to take still images from old album photos for long-term preservation and enjoyment. Revive Shot digitally revives faded colors and automatically adjusts for obliquity, even when photos are shot while still in the album. The EX-Z600 is equipped with a BEST SHOT Button, allowing convenient one-touch access to this popular feature that offers 32 different scene selections, including Anti Shake and Revive Shot, for hassle-free photos every time. The EX-Z600 embodies CASIO's continuing commitment to offer digital camera users cutting-edge technology and convenient user-friendly functionality in a small, stylishly designed package. Providing the freedom to take high quality pictures and movies anywhere, anytime, the new EX-Z600 makes taking memories as easy and fun as making them.
