Summary: We'll never understand why Casio doesn't have more market share. The Exilim S770 continues a tradition of elegant excellence that is found hardly anywhere else. The much larger 2.8-inch screen is a huge improvement over the 2.2 inch screens of the earlier S500/600 models. True, the camera is a bit larger and not quite as visually stunning, but it still is a looker, especially if you pick the red one. This is definitely an Editor's Choice.
Pros: Terrific 2.8-inch high-res wide screen, Gorgeous design and execution, Very small, light and handy, Simple operation and menus, A full 34 scene modes, Unlimited audio recording, Anti-blur mode, "Past movie" mode invaluable
Cons: No manual control, Tiny controls and hard-to-read labels, No optical viewfinder, Only 6MB internal memory
Conclusion: So they have virtually identical image sensors and optics, nearly the same design, and take basically identical photos. If you have to pick one, which should it be? For my money, the EX-S770 wins this comparison for one simple reason: it includes a docking cradle. Figure 11: The EX-S770 can stand tall in its cradle, but the EX-Z75 really falls flat.
Excerpt: Good things come in small packages. And Casio have delivered! The new EX-S770 is super slim at just 13mm and is all about style. The wider curved top right corner, the 2.8 inch wide screen LCD and very easy navigation shows that plenty of thought has gone into this camera. The 230,000-pixel 2.8 inch LCD is most definitely a big selling point as it takes up around 4/5ths of the back.
Summary: Seems like in the past year or two, digital camera manufacturers are releasing new model lineups every three to six months. Yet, there doesn't seem to be much change from lineup to lineup. On top of that, most manufacturers offer very similar cameras at different price points, making it hard for consumers to figure out which model to buy. So it goes with Casio's digital camera line.
Pros: Slim (less than 3/4" thick when closed);, 3X optical zoom;, Easy to use, even for non-enthusiasts., Nearly identical specifications;, EX-Z75 does not include a docking cradle;, Can't sync EX-Z75 on a dead battery.
Excerpt: Casio offers an attractive ultra-slim, stainless steel body in 3 colors, digital camera model called Elixim S770 . EX-S770 has an Anti-Shake DSP function for reducing photo blur due to shaky hands or moving subjects, USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Connectivity, and a super bright screen that boasts a maximum brightness over 2 times brighter than current industry averages making it easier to see outdoors on a sunny day.
Summary: It's not perfect, but the easy-to-use Casio S770 is one of our most favourite Exilims to date, only really falling down when it comes to that familiar Casio bugbear of light sensitivity (or rather its insentivity to light!
Pros: James Bond-like design ethic that means it slots easily into the tightest of pockets, quality metal build means it’ll withstand a few knocks in the heat of the action, user friendly menu layout allows quick implementation of key functions, sharp and colour rich images under most conditions (especially if a lot of natural daylight around)
Cons: Image noise is a real problem above ISO400, meaning we’d recommend sticking to ISO 200 or below, no removable media supplied with the camera, though this is increasingly common
Summary: The S770 is another advancement of Casio’s Exilim Card camera line, with its oversized widescreen LCD display, and easy to use menu sidebar. If portability, style and usability are tops, the EX-S770 is your camera. Picture quality is excellent in lighted situations, otherwise its conservative ISO capabilities limit it to social flash photography.
Excerpt: The Casio Exilim EX-S770 is the latest model in Casio’s Exilim Card line of ultra-compact/ultra-slim cameras.

If you’re looking for a slim camera with a nice LCD and good battery life, the S770 should be considered.
