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.
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 .
Pros: Truly pocket-sized; great on-screen controls.
Cons: Miniscule buttons; few manual controls; blurry output; some purple fringing.
Conclusion: The Casio Exilim Card EX-S10 is a very nice little camera; it looks good, is well made, and can produce good low ISO shots. The barrel distortion at the wide end of the lens is a lack in terms of the lens performance as, worryingly, is the odd blooming on brighter subjects.
Pros: Build and ultra-slim line design, low ISO image quality, easy to use, 848 x 480-pixel H.264/AVC movies, and YouTube movie mode
Cons: High ISO image noise, low-powered flash unit, no optical viewfinder, limited manual control
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
