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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
