    Just wondered if anyone has a Casio Digital Camera and whether they
    are any good?

    I am upgrading from 35mm to Digital and have been looking at the
    EX-Z120 and EX-Z750 Exilim models, wondered what your thoughts are on
    Casio?

    Thanks

    I've had a Casio for about five years and it's still working just fine.
    Casio's marketing however leaves much to be desired.

    Had, infact - still do have, a Casio QV2900UX for a number of years.
    LOVED IT.

    Only downside is that now 2.1Mp wasn't really up to the quality I wanted.
    I've just upgraded to a DSLR - but have no intention whatsoever of ditching
    the Casio. It will remain as a pocket sized snapsot taker..

  4. Just a glance at other Casio products should give you the answer.

    I've had a 3.2mp Exilim for a few years and have found it to be very good.
    It's extremely well built, has that clever Pentax lens, a good screen and
    good control over the images. As a carry everywhere shooter it's great. My
    wife now uses it and it's still going strong.

  6. I've had one for about 4 years and really like it- works great, good
    design and good quality photos.

    I have had the EX-Z750 for a few weeks.
    It is a wonderful toy. Emphasis on toy.
    The EX-Z750 will fit in a pocket with room left over for whatever else you
    might want to stick in there, and that is a major selling point for this
    camera.
    I have great fun using it and it seems to be very well constructed. It has
    already taken a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.
    I would not want this to be my only digital camera, however, unless I was
    only interested in snapshot quality pictures.
    All of these pocket sized wonder cameras, regardless of manufacturer, are
    constructed with significant tradeoffs to achieve their teensy sizes. For
    example the mechanized zooms are not smooth but achieve only preset
    ratcheted stops. Sharpness and distortion are real issues as well.
    The 7.2 mps of the EX-Z750 are total overkill as the ultimate image quality
    is not much better than what I can get out of my ancient 3.2mp Nikon 990,
    particularly since neither camera will routinely create images that can
    stand printing at much larger than 5x7 inches.
    However I highly recommend the EX-Z750 as best of breed for pocket sized
    wonder camera. Apparently it takes good quality video also, although video
    eats up your SD card storage space rapidly.
    If you want better image quality from a high megapixel point and shoot
    camera I would look elsewhere than this entire class of cameras.
