Summary: All that the reviewers here and elsewhere have said about this camera is true. It's a good camera. I bought this as a replacement for the no-longer available Pentax Optio S. Unfortunately, it's not as good as the Optio S. Here are the reasons: THE IMAGE QUALITY ISN'T AS GOOD as the 3.2 megapixel Optio S. Even when I set the Casio Exilim EXZ55 at +2 sharpness, it still isn't as sharp as the Optio S.
Summary: The Casio Exilim EXZ55 competes head to head with the Canon SD400 and SD450. Likes: The Casio zoom control is in a more convenient place than the Canon. It is right where my thumb wants it to be. The Canon zoom is on a ring around the shutter button and I feel like I'm going to drop the camera when I zoom out. The Casio battery life is almost three times as long as the Canon. So long that you should not worry if you forgot your spare battery.
Summary: The camera is small, but not too small and the huge screen is great to view photos immediately with friends etc. I really like this camera..perfect except that I have a mac and can't play the video back..they need to change this...if they do, it would be a 5 star camera..love it!
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to Brazil with my daughter.. I bought a 1gb card for it. We had the ability to take 500 photos. We actually did take almost 400 and I never had to re-charge the battery--not once. My daughter used three sets of batteries for her own camera and only took 98 photos. I used it under all lighting conditions and the photos are beautiful. Everyone is commenting on how beautiful the photos are-clear and the good color.
Summary: I have researched cameras for a while now, with my own personal experiences in all of the large brands...kodak, sony, canon, nikon... and i have to say all of them are inferior to this camera. the z55 is awesome. below i have listed pros and cons for casio, most of which are great pros 1)everything the camera states is true, battery life is phenominal, ive taken 450+ pictures and then it dies, it would definately last a weeks trip to the mountains 2)very sturdy its...
Summary: I've had the camera for about 6 months now. Overall I'm thrilled with it. I like pretty much the same stuff as everyone else - nice big screen, loaded with features, intuitive operation, long battery life, small - all terrific. I agree with those that complain about some picture quality although I've had quality problems on other expensive digital cameras too so ...
Summary: My husband and I have been wanting a digital camera for some time now. We would love a digital SLR, but can't afford it right now. This one is nice because it is so compact and can be taken anywhere without having to lug a big camera bag around. We love the big screen and the buttons that make it very easy to switch between camera mode and playback mode.
Summary: I bought this camera based on the reviews on Amazon, and overall I am quite pleased with it. I bought it to replace my Olympus C3040 zoom, which took beautiful pictures until it died. This camera is so much smaller, lightweight, and so much easier to use than my Olympus was. The battery power is amazing. It seems like it never needs charging. My Olympus took four AA rechargeables, and I had to charge it every time I used it.
Summary: On paper the EXZ55 looks great. But once I got it there were a few things i did not like. I had this camera for a couple of weeks and returned it. I'm going to try the canon sd300. I liked - great battery life - big screen - solid construction - movie recording with sound and audio playback is great - very compact with a lot of features I returned it because - It's a two-handed camera. You have to hold it with your left and operate with your right.
Summary: I saw this new camera and fell in love with the large screen. I mean how many times can you look at a 1 inch screen and figure out if you want to keep the pic? The large screen is the best I've seen. It's a bit pricey but worth the money. It's thin enough to keep in my pocket. Only problem is that they don't sell anything to protect your camera if it's bouncing around in your pocket. Get a 1 Gig card and you can keep on shooting.
