Casio Exilim Pro EXP600 Digital Camera Camera

 

We had a hard time deciding whether the silver, metal-clad Exilim Pro fit better into our point-and-shoot category or our advanced camera category. It has all of the creative controls--but not the size and heft--of a typical advanced model. It's...

We weren't impressed by the software bundled with the Exilim. For such a sophisticated camera, the Casio Photo Loader and Photohands software seems simplistic and limited

Casio Exilim Pro EX-P600

 

The EX-P600 sets the standard for in-camera help systems.

Because it offers lots of controls and lots of help, the Exilim Pro EX-P600 can be used by photographers of all skill levels.

Expensive. Slow recycle time. Some dark exposures ; Bottom Line ; Even though it's a bit pricey, this is a very good camera for the money, whether you're a pro who wants a powerful pocketable camera or a beginner who wants a great camera to grow with

The Pro EX-P600 is Casio's latest addition to its growing family of Exilim series cameras. It's a compact, high-performance camera that combines a high-resolution 6-Megapixel effective imager, a Canon 4x optical zoom lens and a large two-inch color...

Casio has posted a firmware 1.01 update for the EX-P600 camera. It allows for high-speed night scene recording and zooming of portrait mode images (without changing them to landscape orientation):

Casio EXILIM PRO EX-P600 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

The Casio EX-P600 digital camera marks a significant turning point for Casio, a return to the "Enthusiast" market that they left after their very successful QV-3000 model had run its course. The QV-3000 was introduced in early 2000, so it's been a...

Casio EX-P600 Digital Camera Review

 

The Exilim Pro EX-P600 is a digital camera for those with a taste for grunt in the compact / prosumer range. At 6 mega pixels, Casio has raised the bar offering those looking to purchase a 5 mega pixel camera a step up. The option to produce images on...

The camera has a 6 mega pixel capture producing workable jpeg size files that upload to your PC fairly quickly. The EX-P600 also uses the Photoloader software (included), which, as mentioned in previous Casio reviews is fantastic and very...

Sarcasm aside, the P600 is truly a "fully loaded" digicam. How does the P600 perform? Find out in our review

Very good image quality (though some vignetting) ; Large (but low resolution) 2.0" LCD display ; Robust performance ; Loads of manual controls, including multiple types of bracketing ; Useful gimmicks like Manual Assist, calendar, album ; Lots of "best...

Some vignetting in images ; Weak flash ; LCD freezes when camera is focusing ; Pathetic 9.2MB of on-board memory ; Dumb gimmicks like EX Finder, image roulette ; Outdated movie mode ; Battery not as powerful as competition ; Bundled software not Mac OS...

Overall, I recommend the Casio Exilim EX-P600, which proves that you can't just a book by its cover.

Not much. The deeper you go into this cameraâs feature set, the more you find that makes you smile. On the surface you have a very appealing, classy-looking unit made of contrasting silver, gray, and chromed segments. From every angle, itâs a high-tech...

Iâve saved my favorite feature for last. Casio has developed an information overlay in shooting mode thatâs clearly inspired by science fiction movies. The EX Finder is enabled with a click of the display button, whereupon your image is graphically...

The camera sports 9MB of internal flash memory for storing your favorite images. You can choose to make these hidden or visible to all for whatever reasons you may have. There's a standard SD slot but the camera does not ship with a card. Don't skimp...

Product Specifications

Resolution, response, and operating time. If these are the benchmarks by which today's digital cameras are judged, the new EXILIM PRO is one of the most advanced digital camera ever. A 6-million effective pixel CCD combines with 4X optical zoom to deliver images of amazing resolution and clarity. As the vanguard model of the EXILIM lineup, the EX-P600 features the very best in performance, function, styling, and ease of operation. Regardless of how many features a digital camera has, speed is one of the most important considerations. From startup, to Auto Focus, shutter release time lag, and more, EXILIM PRO is designed and engineered to provide the ultimate in nimble, high-speed operation. A high-speed continuous shutter lets you record up to six images at a rate of three images per second, even at maximum resolution. With the Multi Continuous Shutter mode, you can record 25 consecutive images with the press of the shutter button. CASIO's original new Multi Bracketing feature lets you specify a variable setting and create multiple versions of the same image with a single press of the shutter button. You can specify one of a total of six different variables, including saturation and sharpness. In addition, three types of Auto Bracketing provide you with the means to vary exposure (EV value) and other settings as you record a series of consecutive images. The new EX Finder superimposes a wealth of imaging data over the image on the monitor screen. This provides you with an overview of all major image settings at a glance, and the means to change settings in an instant. EXILIM PRO is packed with a powerful collection of features and functions that provide you with the tools you need to record beautiful, high-resolution images. The EX key lets you configure settings with the touch of a button. A Manual Assist feature provides guidance that simplifies manual aperture and shutter speed settings. With the Best Shot mode, you can select the sample scene that is closest to the image you want to record, which will change the camera setup to record the type of image you selected. The EXILIM PRO case is finished using an Ex Fine Blast Treatment that gives it an elegant finish. Keys for manual settings and a highly intuitive controller button are carefully arranged on the back of the camera to keep everything you need just a click away. EXILIM PRO comes with a remote controller unit and a video cable for connection to a TV. EXILIM PRO also supports use of optionally available conversion lenses and an external flash unit. You can use a USB cable to connect EXILIM PRO directly to a printer that supports PictBridge or USB DIRECT-PRINT for printing without going through a computer.
