The Casio Exilim EX-S770 is a stylish point and click camera that fits easily into a pocket. Made in lightweight metal (5.1 ounces), it comes in silver, blue and red.

The Casio Exilim EX-S770 is a stylish point and click camera that fits easily into a pocket. Made in lightweight metal (5.1 ounces), it comes in silver, blue and red. The 2.8 inch LCD screen is wide enough for an extensive menu and bright enough to be seen in daylight. The camera uses a lithium-ion battery that needs to be plugged into a cradle. With an internal memory of 6mb, you’ll need to add either SDHC, SD, or MMC memory cards to take many photos. CNET loves the look and size of the camera, but admits that the small size means that the S770's buttons are quite small and flat, making them feel awkward under large thumbs. On the plus side, the camera offers 35 photo presets, including the auction-photo-optimizing eBay mode. However, CNET is disappointed with the S770’s picture quality. With a max of ISO 400 sensitivity, the camera isn’t very suitable for low-light or high-speed shooting. Also, while the camera reproduces color and highlights quite well, fine details tend to be softened by processing artifacts. They also noticed heavy fringing where dark and near-white objects contrasted with each other.

DigitalCameraReview wasn’t as harsh on the camera, noting that image quality was good overall. Details were sharp with a small amount of softness in the corners that isn’t noticeable unless you’re looking hard for it. They also mentioned that the fringing was very well controlled. The flash performed well for a camera of this size, reaching a range of 12.8 feet. The major concern they had with this camera was that the zoom controls weren’t very comfortable or intuitive. ThinkCamera called their review “Camera meets PDA”. Why? If you use the bundled “data transport” software, you can transfer computer data to your camera. Documents, email and web pages are all converted to JPEG format so that they can be displayed on the view screen. Some of the applications suggested include tourist maps and attractions - just download them to your camera and never get lost. So, to summarize, the camera is very small and stylish with average picture capabilities. There are some added features (large view screen and data capabilities) that make this an attractive camera for casual users.
