Casio EX-P505 Digital Camera Review
31 December 2006
Excerpt: The Casio Exilim Pro EX-P505 is quite simply a small digi-cam with plenty of features. Encased in a hard plastic outer, the camera is finished nicely in a flat pearl black surface complimented with hints of chrome.
Conclusion: Although you might not want to throw away your camcorder just yet, the Casio EX-P505 is part of a new breed of camera, the hybrid, shooting good 5-megapixel snapshots and 640-by-480 MPEG-4 videos. It performs both jobs well.
Pros: Hybrid design means you only need to carry one device for stills and video. Very good flash for stills. Some powerful options for capturing what happened shortly before and after the shutter release/record button is pressed.
Cons: Test shots are a bit dark. No quick-review button to view photos. No optical viewfinder. White-balance and focus slow to readjust in movie mode.
Excerpt: The Casio Exilim EX-P505 ($499) isn't just another digital camera. Rather, it's Casio's attempt at making a convergence device, putting a camera and camcorder into one compact device.
Pros: Nice combination of still + video recording features, 5X zoom in a compact body, Flip-out, rotating 2" LCD display, Robust performance, Full manual controls, Excellent movie mode; stereo sound, optical zoom can be used, numerous ways to record, Great macro mode, Tons of scene modes, Built-in ND f...
Cons: Overpriced, Cheap plastic body, Images are too noisy/grainy; some corner/edge softness, Redeye a problem, LCD doesn't "gain up" in low light, Poor low light focusing / no AF-assist lamp, Can't swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod, Poor Mac compatibility (for moving viewing/editing), No m...
Conclusion: There isn't a compact in the market at the moment that doesn't exhibit some sort of problem when you examine images close up, but you'd be wise to wait for a price cut before considering this camera: if it was reduced to £200, its speed could make it a player...
Pros: Full-frame metering system helps outdoorsISO 400 gives scope for indoor shootingNeutral colour and contrast equals good skin!
Cons: No image stabiliser for low-light shootingA wider lens would come in handyNo problems with skin tones to speak of
Summary: The EXILIM PRO EX-P505 is a palm-sized yet high-performance digital camera with amazing still image and video capability. The EX-P505 features a 5X optical zoom, a 5.0 megapixel CCD imager, Casio's "EXILIM engine", and a large 2-inch TFT color rotating screen that makes angle shots a snap.
Summary: A combination of a long-range zoom and a powerful Macro mode make this model interesting, but it’s not cheap enough to be really good value for money. The zoom lens is fast enough for good depth-of-field effects on close-ups, though, and the light body makes using a tripod easier than for bulky...
Summary: Although somewhat pricey for a 5-megapixel camera with no optical viewfinder, Casio's EX-P505 is small and sleek, with a nicely-designed and well-built alloy body and large vari-angle monitor.
