Excerpt: When Casio introduced its Exilim EX-Z1000 in April of 2006 it was the world's first ten megapixel compact camera. Did Casio set the world aflame with this milestone and a nice round number. Not quite.
Pros: Elegant, ultra-thin stainless steel body, 10.1 megapixel resolution, Terrific 2.7-inch wide-format LCD, 36 different modes, Fun movies modes and H.264/AAC recording, 848 x 480 movies at 30 frames per second

Summary: If slimness, style, and portability were the only important aspects of digital cameras, then the Casio Exilim Card EX-S10 would win hands down. Unfortunately, while it has some nice features--including an excellent LCD and fast overall performance--the EX-S10's lens wasn't able to keep our pictures...
Conclusion: However, the image quality is very good considering the minute size, and there are dozens of Scene modes to help get the best out of almost any shooting conditions. Best of all, the camera takes up so little pocket space that you can take it anywhere.
Summary: The Casio Exilim EX-S10 nearly fooled us with its size zero proportions and light feature set. But as soon as we saw the giant screen, we suspected there was more than met the eye with this 10-megapixel point-and-shoot.
Pros: Giant screen; video record button; handy sidebar; tweakable options; stick-thin.
Cons: No image stabilisation; noise issues; some clunky controls.
Conclusion: I am more impressed with the Casio Exilim EX-S10 than I thought I would be. The really slim cameras do not always offer quite the same picture quality as larger models, but in this case I would be happy to own this camera.
Pros: Size - LCD screen information - widescreen movies - bright photos
