Casio Exilim EX-V7 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
14 March 2008
  • Excerpt: The EX-V7 is powered by the Exilim Engine 2.0 for high resolution, high performance, high speed, power saving and ultra-compact configuration. This ultra compact and very slim digital camera comes with Dual Image Stabilizer (CCD shift system). It also combines Casio’s well-received Anti Shake DSP , which reduces blur due to shaky hands or a moving subject by using higher ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds.

  • Conclusion: The Casio EX-V7 is one of the those cameras that works better on paper than it does 'in the flesh'. The combination of ultra-compact design, 7x zoom, mechanical stabilization and rich feature set is an alluring one, and one that makes the EX-V7 one of the most powerful 'pocket cameras' we've seen to date - a real case of 'having your cake a eating it'.
  • Pros: Slim all-metal body, Very very compact for a camera with a 7x zoom lens (world's slimmest), Subtle processing, good color, Superb build and finish, Easy to use, Well designed control and menu system, Very fast startup, focus, shutter lag - feels very responsive, Lots of scene modes and in-camera effects / editing, Superb screen; very bright, Accurate white balance, More manual overrides than normal in a camera of this type, Lots of on-screen information including expo...
  • Cons: Most images look soft, lack biting detail, CCD-shift image stabilization almost totally ineffective, ISO 1600 very noisy - next to useless, Heavy noise reduction at ISO 100-800, Underpowered flash, Cannot charge the battery or connect to PC without using the cradle, Resolution at anything other than widest aperture well below average, Corner softness, vignetting and strong distortion, Some fringing and highlight clipping, We'd prefer the lens started wider than 38mm e...

  • Excerpt: Implementing 7x optical zoom in an ultra-compact digicam seems like a major achievement, especially when the camera lens motor is completely internal, i.e. it doesn't protrude out of the body. But is it really effective? Do we have a superzoom killer here or just an overambitious project? Read on. What I really like about the Exilim V7 are its accessories.

Camera Review: Casio Exilim Hi-Zoom EX-V7

Pop Photo
5 January 2008
  • Excerpt: If you've read any of my previous reviews, you'll know that one of the many "themes" I have is that point and shoot cameras need to have greater zooming power. In many instances, you'll typically see a (3x) 30-something to 100-something millimeter (35mm equivalent) range lens. And while I'll be the first to admit that this is useful, it's also limiting.

  • Excerpt: I bought mine in black version few days ago and the first impression is positive, only some doubts concerning the 7X Optical Zoom. As soon as possible I'll give you more feedbacks, I have to test better the Hi-Zoom. You can see some pics, as example, already available on my album.
