Summary: Great ProdUCT= Casio's ultra-compact EXILIM series-still relyable It shares a 5 Megapixel CCD imager and high-performance 3X Pentax zoom with its brother the EX-Z50, but adds a larger 2.5-inch LCD screen, etc. It features a compact and stylish design wrapped up in a durable aluminum alloy body.
Summary: This is the 2nd Casio Exilim EXZ55 camera I have owned. My first one got lost on a camping trip. This is a very reliable camera. I particularily like the fact that is has the screen you can look at before the picture is taken and also the view finder that can be used to see what will be taken. When the sun is bright cameras without the view finder are hard to use and you don't know what you will be getting on the picture until it is taken. I love the docking station.
Summary: I really like this camera even though by now it is pretty old. It has some cool features like manual focus and a fairly clear picture, but what I really like is that it still works after taking a serious pounding; mine has big dents all over the left side from various drops and impacts (getting hit by a cab skateboarding, crashing all kinds of ways) but still keeps on working.
Summary: I am someone who sets everything to Auto and expects the camera to produce reasonable results. This camera is fine for pure sun, but anything overcast results in photos that are entirely too dark. I have taken enough shots in various conditions to conclude that this camera does not do well with a lack of bright light (vs. other cameras I have owned over the past 15 years). On the positive side, I love the cradle charger/connector, and battery life is great.
Summary: To be honest when the camera was working it was fantastic. Great features, long batery life, easy to use etc. Then 18 months after purchase it broke. Just will not power up. Casio want $250 + shipping to replace it with a rebuilt one.
Summary: I did LOTS of research before finally purchasing the Casio Exilim EXZ55, my first digital camera. I've now owned it for one year and have been extremely happy with the quality, features, and ease of use of this camera. The Z55 appealed to me for a few reasons. Besides the obvious reason of desiring high-quality photos, I knew that I wanted a camera with a long battery life. I can easily use the camera for an entire day without worrying about the battery running out.
Summary: I have this camera for two years and I am very satisfied. As a point and shoot, this camera is flexible enough to let me fine tune settings to adjust to my scene. Check out the customer photos to see for yourself.
Summary: Great camera, took great pics, everyone loved it. Then one day I went to turn it on and half the screen was black and distorted. The unit was kept in a case and experienced no abuse. I called Casio who said to send it in to an authorized dealer for repair. Six calls and a month later, no repair and a bill for $200 to repair a camera that cost $300 only 6 months from purchase. Neither Casio or the authorized dealer are any help.
