Nice controls, good for a beginning photographer like me

Summary: It seems as though the image stabilizer on this camera can fail and prevent the camera from starting up. It also appears as though that's fixable by upgrading the firmware: [...] This camera is small enough to fit comfortably in a large pocket, and it's pretty versatile.
Summary: I got this for my daughter, who has figured out all the different ways it can be used (and shown most of them to me). It's really a gem. The only downside (a small one) is that the camera cannot be directly connected (by USB cable) to your computer.
Summary: Excellent camera, small and portable. Only two minor problems: The autofocus aid light remains always on, and the wrist strap is way too short. This leads to put your finger on the lens, or not using the strap at all. The lens cover is perfect to protect the camera!
Summary: It took a little bit to figure out the features of this camera but once that was done, we have been able to take some extraordinary pictures. Love the ease of the camera when using it. This camera was bought specifically for the 7X optical and it does a good job.
Summary: I have had several of the Exilim cameras and this latest version is a lower resolution but has some advantages that outweigh the lower res. It has no lens that protrudes from the body of the camera which makes it a perfect camera to always have around.
Summary: This is the best Casio camera I have had so far. It is very easy to use. The pictures are outstanding. The videos are just as good as a camcorder. The ability to zoom while taking a video is very convenient. Image stabilization worked well for me.
Summary: I agree with the points of the other reviewers. Note the manual mentions to store the battery in the drained state for extended periods. I plan to order a second battery, but will probably have it charged all the time. An extra docking station will make things easier while on holiday.
Summary: I have been waiting forever for a digital camera with decent quality that allowed optical zoom when capturing video so I didn't need to carry a separate video camera. Finally Casio delivers with this model that lets you silently zoom upto 7x (wow!) when using the camera.
Summary: This is the greatest cammera I have EVER seen! It's perfect! I agree with the first review that the lack of a printed manual is a problem. They send the manual on CD rom. But this baby is still the best cammera for the money you can buy!
