Casio's New Exilim PRO EX-P700 takes professional-quality images fast without weighing you down.

Casio EX-P700

 

The EX-P700 is Casio's latest addition to its growing family of Exilim Pro series cameras and follows last year's 6-Megapixel EX-P600 model. The EX-P700 is a compact, high-performance camera that combines a high-resolution 7-Megapixel imager, a Canon...

Bottom line - the Casio Pro EX-P700 is good overall performer. It will make a great choice for those wanting a durable, high-resolution digicam with a wide variety of exposure options. With a street price of around $549, it offers a good overall value. If

Megapixels: 7, Included Memory: On Board, Media Format: Secure Digital, Type: Compact, Maximum Resolution: 3072 x 2...

Impressive daylight shots, broad features set, external flash connector, simple menu structure, slim profile, informative pop-up shooting tips, Best Shot Selector, included wireless remote.

Flash shots overexposed, slow performer, no RAW support, no focusable diopter, some buttons inconveniently placed, disappointing video mode.

The Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700 is easy to use and is loaded with lots of useful, fun, and quirky features. It captures sharp color images, and gives users lots of bang for their buck, though its performance is comparatively slow.

The seven megapixel four times zoom EXILIM Pro EX-P700 was announced on 25th August 2004, it is essentially a CCD upgrade to the silver bodied six megapixel EX-P600 announced seven months earlier. The P600 and P700 are Casio's first prosumer digital...

Good resolution ; Low noise but high noise reduction ; Good automatic white balance ; About a third of a stop more sensitive than indicated ; Good performance - startup and AF notably ; Good build quality, compact size ; External flash support via PC...

Intrusive noise reduction ; Some vignetting at wide angle ; No RAW format ; USB 1.1 transfer (slow) ; Slower power off than on (?)

It's always nice to review a camera which surprises you, the EX-P700 was one of those cameras. I have to admit to not having great expectations of it, ok so it has a Canon branded lens (so many cameras these days do, although not all branded), but a...

The Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700 is an extremely well-made, intuitive and feature-rich 7 megapixel digital camera that should be on your wish-list if you are looking for a mid-sized model that doesn't sacrifice functionality for size. Image quality was very g

The EX-P700 is an excellent camera for a beginning enthusiast, but pros will be disappointed with the image quality and absence of RAW format.

Innovative Ex Finder ; live histogram ; Flash Assist ; Auto Macro ; unique Best Shot modes ; helpful remote control

Unimpressive image quality ; no RAW format ; low video resolution

The EX-P700 features the same innovative Ex Finder we loved in the EX-P600. It fills the 2-inch LCD with a wealth of information, including a live RGB histogram. Manual Assist screens graphically illustrate the impact of manual adjustments to aperture...

Casio EX-P700 Digital Camera Review

 

Building on Casio's success with the EX-P600 is the new higher resolution EX-P700. The main difference between the two models is the capture capacity, increasing the capture from 6 mega-pixels to 7 mega-pixels, now producing images at A3 size with...

Our tests in the studio of various products produced images almost as sharp as they come. We really were quite surprised at the results, which would give many higher end digital cameras a run for their money. The colour balancing options are also worth...

Product Specifications

Outwardly it shows cool understatement, but inside it hides a real power package: CASIO's new digital camera EXILIM Pro EX-P700. The new generation from the EXILIM Pro category totally meets the high technical demands that the ambitious photographer puts on his equipment. With 7.2 megapixels picture definition and light-intense Canon lens with 4x optical zoom, the EX-P700 goes far beyond the usual standards. A whole host of extras pave the photographer's way to professional pictures of excellent quality. In addition, with its black, matt-shiny body the camera will appeal to everyone who attaches importance to how his equipment looks. Whether you're at a fashion show or a premiere party: poor light conditions and the dynamics of the event are a challenge to any professional. The EXILIM EX-P700 masters such situations thanks to its light-intense lens and reliable SUPER LIFE-battery. The camera is ready to use after approx. 2 seconds): focus on your motif, press the shutter release and voila - the stars of the evening appear in the large, high-definition 2-inch TFT color display. The camera captures the spectacular performances of the premiere guests with the EXILIM Engine with shutter release time lag of only approx. 0.01 seconds). The high-speed hybrid auto focus system with the new Auto Macro function, which switches independently from auto focus into macro mode and back if required, enables fast and extremely variable focusing to give you a crystal clear picture of the unusual robes and beaming faces. In addition to the spot auto focus, the user can also operate the multi field auto focus, which automatically sights the nearest object through seven different measuring points. Additionally, the focus area is freely selectable via the free auto focus area. The Multi Bracketing function also gives the owner of the EXILIM Pro EX-P700 a lot of design leeway. It allows him to produce pictures with different parameters within a series of exposures (e.g. b/w, sepia or color). And if a picture has turned out too dark due to poor lighting conditions, the innovative Flash Assist function automatically lightens up the picture where necessary. Users who are keen to experiment appreciate having fast access to the basic settings with the EX-Key such as the camera's white balance or ISO settings. The EX-Finder visualizes the currently designated parameters of the camera very clearly. The Manual Assist function helps to determine aperture and exposure time and using examples, shows the photographer what results he will achieve with different manual settings. The BESTSHOT function of the EX-P700 offers quite different possibilities. It keeps 27 prerecorded scenes for different picture situations on standby, such as soft-focus lens or sport motifs. The Business Shot motif program is brand new: trapezium-shaped distorted side views of a presentation chart are converted into a straight front view with the aid of this polished BESTSHOT program. This multitude of photographic possibilities allows the EX-P700 user to retain the overview thanks to the practical Icon Help function; it explains the symbols of the respective photo-mode.
