Excerpt: Even by Casio's high standard the impossibly small and jewel-like Exilim EX-S500 was special. It was so slender and so stunningly attractive that it was hard not to fall in love with it, and everyone here at DigitalCameraRoundup.com did. Ours came in an eye-catching metallic orange. Blue and silver were available also, but the bright reddish-orange is perfect for it. The bad news is that Casio replaced the S500.

Summary: The S600 improves on the already great S500, and features longer battery life, brighter LCD display, and increased picture size. The results are impressive and for the casual photographer on the go, the EX-S600 card camera is the best you’ll find in the mid-range price bracket ($250-$350). BFR Breakdown Design: Stylish looks draw comments from strangers when taken out in public. Buttons are easy to locate and operate. All metal case is durable and scratch resistant.

Conclusion: The Casio Exilim EX-S600 is a very nice camera with a lot of great features. You’ll be sure to get great results and extremely good pictures from your photo excursions, but be careful when comparing it to other cameras around the same price. You may want a viewfinder in case the LCD should break, or a camera that connects via mini-USB so you don’t have to drag a dock around to show off your photos.
Pros: Good picture quality: good battery life; picture resoration option
Cons: Dock is needed to charge camera; no viewfinder
Excerpt: Digital cameras have come a long way from the time that they could capture video along with the 2.1 megapixel images. While primarily for still photography, because the CCD technology that goes into a digital camera is essentially the same as that which goes into a video camera, the video capabilities of still cameras gets better with each jump in the technology. The Casio Exilim Card EX-S600 is one of those cameras.
Conclusion: The Casio EXILIM EX-S600 strikes me as a middle of the road digital camera. Its picture quality falls short of the better models available, but I am sure it's very slim shape will appeal to many people. It is easy to use and is handy to have around for snapshots. For me there are better pocket sized digital cameras around though.
Pros: Super slim size, Indoor portrait, Interesting movie features
Cons: Very small internal memory, Slow recycling times, Very short flash range
Excerpt: $750 3 stars The is an ultra compact 6 megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom lens (38–114mm film equivalent). The face area of the camera is slightly larger than a credit card and the thickness is about 17mm. The has some measure of manual control, mainly through the menu. Miniaturisation has meant that the external control buttons are kept to a minimum.
Pros: The Casio has image stabilisation which works well enough. The LCD monitor, the only viewfinder, is bright but seems to lack resolution. Exposure and focus are generally good but white balance is easily fooled. In a sequence of photos taken with window light the pictures were alternately blue and yellow. The camera is supplied with a cradle that provides for USB connection to a computer and also connection to a power supply to charge the battery. SD cards are the memo...
