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. Unfortunately, the Z1000 and its successors, the Z1050 and Z1080, became a bit of a missed opportunity.
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: Although its tiny size and just-average image quality may be dealbreakers for some, the Casio Exilim EX-S10 comes equipped with tons of features that will appeal to snapshooters who want an easy-to-use camera that delivers more than simply point-and-shoot control.
Pros: Slim design; features not often found on cameras in this class/price range; convenient onscreen menu; live histogram; broad Best Shot options; peppy performance.
Cons: Tiny controls; impossible to read icons/text on buttons and camera body; soft photos; moderate zoom focal range.

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 sharp, and it lagged in terms of image quality.
Excerpt: I was pretty excited when I found out I would be reviewing the Casio Exilim S10, "the world's smallest and thinnest 10.1 megapixel camera." The camera I currently own is far from being the smallest or thinnest any-megapixel camera, and definitely lacks in the style department.
Pros: Good general image quality, Accurate auto white balance, Super Clear LCD is super clear
Cons: No optical/mechanical image stabilization, Horrible user manual, Weird focusings settings
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
