    Hi, all. I'm looking for a digital camera for a relative who likes the
    really small cameras. I'm looking at the Casio EXILIM EX-Z4u. A few
    possible problems, though:

    1. It only support USB 1.1, not USB 2.0. Is this going to be a problem
    now or in the future?

    2. It seems to get good endorsements and reviews. Does anyone here have
    any experience with it they would be willing to share (good or bad)?

    I'd post it again here.

    But since you seem to like Off Topic and adding to the congestion
    over there....

    Who uses the camera to upload photos???
    Nobody I know.
    Get a card reader, and USB 1 vs. 2 is a non-issue.

    I have a Casio Exilim EX-M2 that uses USB 1.1. It's not all that fast
    reading from the camera in the cradle, but I just start the pictures
    dumping from the camera to the PC and do something else for a minute or
    two if there are a lot of pictures. But if you want to write TO the
    camera, it's much slower.

    I wouldn't worry about USB 1.1 as far as future compatibility, it should
    be supported under the USB standard for quite a while.

    If the speed bothered me, I'd just get a card reader as the other poster
    mentioned, they're pretty cheap.

    I'm happy with my EX-M2. If your relative focuses on the "really small"
    part, consider the EX-M20 (the followup to the M2) or EX-S20 (lacks audio
    features) instead of the EX-Z4u. The Z4 is about twice as thick as those,
    heavier, and slower. Also, as far as I can tell, the Z4 doesn't have a
    movie mode, which although limited, I've found to be a fun and useful
    feature on my Exilim.

    Other really small cameras to consider:
    - Casio Exilim Z3
    - Canon PowerShot SD10 Digital Elph
    - Kyocera Finecam SL300R
