Summary: I thought this was going to be the "end all be all" of pocket cameras. Long battery life. Decent photo quality. Super fast shutter lag. And a SEVEN times zoom that also works with video (not to mention having wide screen format for video). However, after only a month, a slight bump rendered the camera worthless. Whenever I power on I get a "Camera Stablizer not available" message.
Summary: I bought two of these cameras for my daughters less than a month ago. Now, after less than 100 pictures taken on each, BOTH camaeras exhibit the "camera stabilizer not available" error. So far, Casio customer support has been less than stellar. I am returning both cameras for "repair". Take my advice and look elsewhere. This camera has a major flaw, as evidenced by all the similar problems in these Amazon reviews.
Summary: My camera stopped working after three weeks of light use and mabbe 200 photos. An error message "camera stabilization not available " pooped up and that was the end of this camera. Customer service was no help. Returning the camera to the manufacturer was a waste of effort. It came back in the same condition. Casio camera is a rip off. Take my advice and try another manufactures camera.
Summary: The Casio Exilim I received was broken upon delivery. I was unable to take a single picture and as I had purchased it to take on a cruise and paid extra to have it mailed in two days, it was a complete disaster. To add to the difficulty, when we called the company to return it, they said there would be a 20% restocking fee.
Started out as a great camera, ended up in the shop 2+ times

Summary: I purchased this camera when it initially was offered and loved the 7x optical as well as the stereo widescreen movie mode. I loved it so much I bought my daughter the same one as well a few months later. Well after 6 months of casual use I recieve the "Camera Stabilizer is not available" error message. The camera is dead after that.
Summary: I bought this 6 weeks ago from bestbuy for 300. I am having the same problem as many other are having. It worked ok for 4 weeks. After that it started saying "camera stabilizer not available". Having said that, when it worked image quality was ok but video quality was horrible. May be I need to change some settings but out of the box video is horrible. I have used other casio cameras which were pretty good but this is one poor camera.
Summary: Upon receipt of my new camera, trying to set it up it failed. After calling Casio after many calls, they said it was faulty and to send it to The Time Machine in Montrose, Ca. for repair, which I did at my expense of $7.63 certified mail. After 5 days, I called Time Machine and they said it was a faulty lens part and they were waiting on the part which would be about another week. The young lady at Time Machine was very friendly and helpful.
Summary: I absolutely loved my Casio Exilim EX-Z750 camera for both its photo and video quality. All the hype around the EX-V7 had me believe I could get a camera I would love even more. How dissapointed I am! Maybe there are many defective cameras out there and mine is one of them because photo image quality is well below average and video quality is unbelievably bad. I am so sorry for selling my EX-Z750.
Summary: As a satisfied owner of an Exilim M1 camera that has performed great for years, I felt it was finally time to upgrade my point-and-shoot to something with a higher resolution. Horrible, Horrible redeye. Like 2 glowing stopsigns on the front of everyone's face. I tried setting the flash to Auto, Redeye Reduction, and even going into the manual settings and turning the flash intensity to negative 2. Nothing made the slightest inkling of difference.
