Summary: With 20 different "scene" shots this camera makes my pictures look semi-professional. The macro mode is incredible for close-ups and has vibrant detail in the resulting pictures. There's also a Sepia and Black and White mode for retro looking pictures apeasing the aspiring artist in us all.
Summary: About 18 months ago, purchased the Z40 for my teenage daughter. It's a great little camera with a long battery life. Last month the lens jammed in the open position. Called Casio and would cost $200 to repair. Did a little research and found Casio has a problem with lenses jamming.
Summary: The pictures were very high quality, when the camera was working. My only complaint there was that even zoomed in, the objects of most pictures at a distance looked ant like. The camera's zoom mechanism broke 3x. The first time I had fixed at my cost. I was not sure that I had not caused the damage.
Summary: I was a bit skeptical of the Casio brand but I liked all the features of this camera and read a positive up review in a photography magazine so I took the leap. I haven't regreted it a bit. This is a great "casual" camera with easy settings for picking just the shot you need.
Summary: I've been an avid digital camera buyer/user for years....When I bought the EX-Z40, it was with extreme excitement. I've been using this Casio EX-Z40 digital camera for 1 1/2 years and it is a disappointment to me.
Summary: It's my first digital camera, though not the first I've ever used. It has user-friendly functions that are easy to set up. I got it on sale ($249 at Circuit City) and it was between this, the super slim 3.2MP or the 5.0MP.
