Summary: After my Canon A620 went belly-up after 5 years of very, very satisfying use, I was forced to find a new digital camera. Because of various online reviews I read, I chose the Casio EX-100. Overall, I'm not happy with this camera, especially compared to the performance I got from my Canon A620. The Casio's photos, even set at "fine" and under optimum lighting are not as clear.
There's a reason for the mediocre average rating on this one...

Summary: I purchased this as a compact camera, with an emphasis on HD video, for an upcoming road trip. I had an older Panasonic TZ3 and wanted a similarly sized camera with better video (HD) and preferably more manual control. I spent a while researching the purchase both in Amazon reviews and elsewhere. While the Amazon reviews were luke warm, the feature set seemed good, and I'd always wanted to try a Casio camera.
Excerpt: Its strength is the 24mm (wide) HS video at 1000fps or down to 240 fps. Does an excellent job of capturing sports in bright/good light conditions. Slow motion has NO Blur at all. Stay at ISO 400 or below if you don't want too much smearing, and stay away from the low light shots, however, a noise reduction software will help save some shots if you keep the pictures small or just want to view them on your PC or digital frame.
