Casio Exilim EX-S500 Review

 

Mindboggling. That's the only way to describe the ultra-tiny new 5-megapixel digicam from Casio.

Casio Exilim EX-S500 Camera

 

Casio's $399, 5.1-megapixel EX-S500 may be one of the thinnest zoom-lens-equipped digital cameras you can buy--just 0.6 inch front to back with its 3X zoom lens retracted. That makes it small enough to take with you almost anywhere. Casio offers this...

Images did not look very sharp

At home or in the office, the S500 perches on its small docking cradle, facing rearward. You can set it to display a calendar, with each day you took a photo represented by a small thumbnail image. Alternatively, you can arrange for it to run a...

Images did not look very sharp

This ultra-thin camera offers a lot of manual settings and features such as anti-shake, but its images didn't look so sharp.

Casio Exilim EX-S500 (gray) review

 

Casio Exilim EX-S500 (gray)

Tiny, attractive form factor; above-average feature set for its class; excellent selection of scene modes; ability to record and save 999 of your own Best Shot scene modes; solid performance.

Average image quality; above-average visual noise; antishake system appears to bump ISO (and noise) to unacceptable levels; no optical viewfinder.

This camera will make a great companion for snapshot photographers who like to travel light but don't want to make large prints.

Casio's EX-S500; For Spontaneous Snaps

 

Coming in at just over a 1/2" thick and weighing an unnoticeable 4 oz, the Casio EXILIM EX-S500 is a wonder of miniaturization, considering it has a 3x optical zoom and 5-megapixel sensor. This, the latest version of Casio's mini-digicams, also has...

Casio Exilim S500

 

Glam cams are the new black

Fully featured 5- megapixel camera that is smaller than a deck of cards, 30 Best Shot modes, 2.5" LCD viewer, 3x optical/4x digital zoom, anti-shake technology, long lasting rechargeable lithium ion battery.

Flash is too hot for up-close shots, performs poorly in heat and humidity.
