Summary: I love this camera!! I thought at first I was going to have to send it back because everything is in Chinese. I downloaded the english manual and finally figured out how to get it out of Chinese. I have owned several camera's over the years and this one is my favorite by far. It is so well designed where they have really made it simple to use even for a beginner like myself. It's the perfect size. I can fit it in my purse and take it with me everywhere.
Summary: High speed video capabilities are EXCELLENT. I managed to diagnose the problem I was having with my framerates. Turns out I just needed to enable vsync. Since I was rendering at 100 FPS and my monitor was running at 60, I was getting a variable offset between the time an image was rendered and when it showed up on the monitor itself. This was very subtle and hard to see directly, but still jarring and irritating.
Summary: Very nice camera, I'm glad that I decided to order it directly from Japan. The shipping was surprisingly quick, waited for delivery less then 3 weeks! This camera is packed with many interesting features - definitely worth the price! English version of the user manual(PDF) is available @ official Casio site.

Summary: Great Camera - got overwhelmed in looking at point and shoot reviews so bought two new batteries for my old Kodak. Then I saw this Casio and the brand name did not impress me as I am a musician and the little Casio keyboards came to mind, I saw other reviews and thought this was the camera for me. Yep it is all and more of what I wanted and Casio has been elevated in my world view.
Summary: CASIO's EX ZR800 is a hidden gem. RAW, up to 1/25000 shutter speed, 30 frames per second or fps, CMOS image processor, perhaps more bang for your buck than any other point and shoot digital camera. You better buy one now because the competition have all ganged up on this lone wolf, tall poppy, success story. In the Japanese domestic market the CASIO EX ZR800 might just be a home ground winner anyway.
Summary: Great pocketable camera. Every feature you probably would ever need. Takes great photos and the burst mode is amazing. I'm using the BS hdr mode the most, doesn't look like the normal over processed hdr on some cams. The BS night shots also work well. I haven't used all the features yet, but the reach and quality make this a really fun camera. Menu's are easy to navigate. Also the manual settIngs are nice to have on a smaller camera , it's a steal at this price get one.
Summary: I spent hours just going over the features of this camera. There are more then you could ever need. Takes great pictures. Not as good as my DSLR, but great for a smaller camera. My only complaints would be: No remote shutter (infra-red, or cable) No motion detection of the high speed video It's difficult to navigate all the settings quickly.
