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.
Summary: This camera is everything I wanted. Clear pictures, an incredible zoom capability and an incredibly fast picture take time. I do not understand why they no longer import to the USA. We have an older Casio that took amazing pics but did not have a big zoom (x3) only. This camera beats anything available here in any point and shoot or big zoom camera.
Summary: This is the 3rd Casio compact camera that I have owned. Each one gets better and is able to do more. This one has a beautiful 18x optical zoom and still looks good at 36x digital. The pictures are very good and does so much for a compact camera. The time-lapse is fun, fun, fun! You can set the seconds between pictures for varied amounts of time. Slow motion is also fun and offers different speeds with varying degrees of clarity.
