Stylish 7.2-megapixel camera for the YouTube generation
30 November 2011
Excerpt: For several years, Casio has been sort of the sleeper hit among digital cameras, with products that are consistently attractive, innovative and ahead of the curve. That is quite an accomplishment for a diverse company whose core business is in calculators and watches rather than photography.
Pros: Crisp, logical design, layout and menus, H.264 movie recording for small size at good quality, Advanced face detection modes, Over 40 scene modes, You can get it in four colors, Superior movie modes, including past movie, Speedy operation and good image quality
Cons: Mediocre, low-res screen, Lacks the sleek, precision feel of other Casios, Poor English translations and very marginal companion software
Pros: Very small and lightweight — perfect for carrying in a pocket or small purse, 7.2-megapixel resolution for excellent prints to 8×10, Extensive menu settings and “Best Shot” exposure modes, “Easy Mode” for pure point-and-shoot photography, Built-in flash includes a flattering soft flash setting, Self-timer includes a 3x option, $159 price tag!, Very small and lightweight — perfect for carrying in a pocket or small purse, 7.2-megapixel resolution for excellent prints to...
Cons: LCD quick-review makes photos you’ve just taken look blurry, Image quality suffers in poor lighting conditions, Battery charger has a long, awkward cord, LCD quick-review makes photos you’ve just taken look blurry, Image quality suffers in poor lighting conditions, Battery charger has a long, awkward cord
Conclusion: The Casio Exilim EX-Z77 is one of the less expensive pocket sized cameras. It is disappointing that the photos it produces are not sharper. Personally I would either pay more for a better quality pocket sized camera or pay the same for a larger camera that takes a better photo.
Summary: : The Casio Exilim EX-Z77 is a good point and shoot camera, it fits easily into your pocket and is surprisingly small despite not necessarily being counted as an "ultra-compact". It was also fun to use, has a good battery life, and produced some good results with good colour and saturation. Unfortunately the macro mode is average, noise is a problem at the higher ISO settings, and purple fringing was higher than average.
Pros: Good value for money, Very easy to use, Large screen shows the resulting photos with good clarity., Fast and responsive, LOADS of scene positions to help ordinary people take better photos., Good image quality - good colour, Good battery life (rated at 190+ shots), Stylish compact metal body - looks good, Excellent UHQ / HQ / YouTube Video modes (lots of choice and good compression!)
Cons: Videos limited to 10 minutes long!, Some purple fringing, Small on/off button, Average macro mode, High noise above ISO200
Excerpt: Casio - jest jedną z niewielu firm, której produkty (zaraz po wprowadzeniu na konsumencki rynek) zyskały ogromną sławę i uznanie, zarówno w oczach amatorów jak i profesjonalistów. Niestety produkty tej firmy nie cieszą się popularnością na polskim rynku. Zapewne jest to sprawą mało udanej i efektywnej polityki marketingowej producentów. Nie mniej jednak warto wspomnieć o ich nowym produkcie, jakim jest Casio EX Z77, którego mamy zaszczyt Państwu dziś przedstawić.
