Exilim EX-Z700

 

Announced at the beginning of August and available in September 2006, the Casio Exilim EX-Z700 comes to the market with 7.2 megapixels and all the typical bells and whistles of a Casio camera. It is skinny with a 3x telescoping optical zoom lens on the...

Lots of flash options ; Big LCD ; Pocket sized body ; Hardly any shutter lag ; 3 fps burst ; Rapid flash mode ; Lots of battery power

Not enough included memory ; Manual controls buried in menus ; No optical zoom in movie mode ; Keystone feature doesn't work ; Childish software ; Terrible in low light ; Some of the noisiest pictures we've seen

The Casio Exilim EX-Z700 has a lot going for it. The digital camera has 7.2 megapixels and still keeps shutter lag to a minimum.

The Z700 also features Layout Shot mode, where photographers can combine multiple shots of friends taken with the same scenic backdrop into a single collage, or even mix shots with different compositions to create a single artistic layout. Users simply...

Casio Exilim EX-Z700 (Silver)

 

Though not as sleek as other Casio cameras, the Z700's flat, rectangular body comes in five different colors so users can accessorize. It feels comfortable and well-built in the hand; weighing 5 ounces and measuring just 0.8 inch thick, it can fit...

Quick and responsive; solid build.

Heavy fringing; left edge of images are blurry; should not default to Quick Shot mode.

The Casio Exilim EX-Z700 is a solid ultracompact camera, but there are better choices out there.

Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z700 Digital Camera - Express Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

For a pocket camera that sells for under $300, the Casio Exilim EX-Z700 has a lot going for it. Available in a choice of blue, silver, or gray, the Casio EX-Z700 is a slim camera with a light, but sturdy body made of polycarbonate with nice metal...

Attractive and functional compact design ; Speedy performance with virtually no shutter lag when you pre-focus ; Rapid Flash function helps take quick flash photos in succession ; New Auto Framing mode helps capture pictures of moving subjects ; Punchy...

Poor low-light capabilities ; Over aggressive anti-noise processing smooshes out detail at ISO 400 and 800 ; High ISO shots appear dark ; Low resolution LCD ; Softness in corners of pictures ; Tends to underexpose on bright days ; Onboard memory only...

As usual, Casio packs in the scene modes (which Casio dubs "Best Shot") on the EX-Z700, with a whopping 37 different shooting options. Along with the usual standard Sports, Portrait, and Fireworks modes, Casio adds two new interesting Best Shot...

Product Specifications

The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z700 is the latest addition to its stylish series of EXILIM digital cameras. This newest member of the EXILIM family combines the high-resolution performance of an effective 7.2 megapixels with Casio's Super Bright LCD for easy viewing in broad daylight. The EX-Z700's Super Bright LCD is both big and bright: the 2.7-inch screen with 1200cd/m 2 brightness is easy to see, even on a sunny day. At 7.2 megapixels, the high-performance EX-Z700 ensures crystal-clear image output for both printing and screen, delivering extraordinary photographic detail. The long-life battery packs enough power for around 460 still images on a single charge, and the camera comes with Casio's Anti Shake DSP to reduce photo blur due to shaky hands or moving subjects. All in all, the EX-Z700 strikes an extremely attractive balance between slim, stylish looks and high-performance functionality. It also adds brand new picture-taking functions in BEST SHOT mode.
