Conclusion: This handbag-friendly skinny-cam that’s great for party photos and shooting from the hip. A great upgrade from your cameraphone but unlikely to replace a serious snapper.
Pros: Like lingerie, the more you pay for a digital camera, the less you get. The S10 justifies its high price by slinking into your life at just 15mm thick and 113g, with a choice of stimulating red, sultry silver, sleek black or, er, functional blue stainless steel cases. Casio expects to you to get a little over-excited, so the S10 sports an Auto Shutter mode that only takes a picture when it senses your hands stop shaking. A 2.7-inch LCD is perfect for framing memory-ef...
Cons: The Casio’s surgically-enhanced 10-megapixel sensor is a touch top-heavy for such a slimline snapper: images get noisy and dirty in low light, which isn’t nearly as much fun as it sounds. The modest 3x zoom lens is on the small side these days, too.
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
Excerpt: By far the smallest camera in this group test, the Exlim Card S10 isn’t quite credit-card sized as the name suggests, but it’s half the thickness of most of its rivals and a third of the chubby Coolpix P5100 . The S10 will slip into the pocket of the skinniest of jeans, and it weighs between two-thirds and three-quarters as much as the other models.
Pros: Truly pocket-sized; great on-screen controls.
Cons: Miniscule buttons; few manual controls; blurry output; some purple fringing.
Summary: Casios Exilim EX-S10 scheint auf den ersten Blick angesichts ihrer minimalistischen Abmessungen und des überschaubaren Funktionsumfangs nicht viel herzumachen. Aber sobald man das geräumige Display sieht, kommt doch der Verdacht auf, dass diese 10-Megapixel-Schnappschusskamera mehr zu bieten hat. Die verfügbaren Funktionen sind flexibel genug, um einige Probleme hinsichtlich der Bildqualität umschiffen zu können.
