Summary: I own the z750 as well, and bought this one used after I broke the lcd screen on the 750. What I mainly like about this camera is the flexibility in shooting modes. Unlike the vast majority of pocket-sized digital cameras nowadays, this camera has a manual exposure mode.
Great little camera, amazing battery life, excellent pic quality

Summary: yep, mod me down, but after a year of using it, i give this little camera 5 stars, as easily among the best in its class. For what it does, it does very well. I havent had any issues with reliability for the year i have had it, I've dropped it several times onto tile floors and it survived.
Summary: After six months, the screen cracked, despite the fact that I had treated it with kid-gloves, never dropped it, and it was never used by anyone else. One minute it was fine. I put it on its cradle, and the next minute I noticed that the screen had cracked.
Summary: I bought the Exilim Z850 on Amazon last year (in 2006). I bought it because I like the compact size, I had a good experience with my old Exilim 3.1MP, and the 8.1MP was high ranked in Consumer Reports. After I received the Exilim Z850 it seemed much better than my old Exilim.
Summary: I do not consider myself to be anyhting but an amatur as a photographer. The ease of use and simplicity of design makes it an immediate favorite. I took two thousdanf pictures in a three week period and not one wasinferior. Thank you Casio.
Summary: The zoom resolution is amazing and pictures generally turn out clear. The "Snapshot" function that automatically adjusts settings seems to be a little retarded, but "Bestshot" settings are numerous and create good pictures.
Summary: My title says it all - I was really disappointed with this camera, but before I get into the specifics as to why, I must mention a few things first. This was my third camera in the Exilim line - prior to purchasing Z850 I have owned Z60, as well as Z600. Both were great cameras.
