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. The camera is not covered in buttons, with pretty much only 5 function buttons other than the master dial, capture and power on/off button. The menu is quite easy to navigate and accessed at the push of a button.

  • 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. On the camera side there's a 5 Megapixel CCD, 5X optical zoom lens, rotating LCD display, manual controls, and plenty of scene modes. On the camcorder side you'll find a high quality VGA movie mode, a zoom lens that can be used during filming, and stereo sound recording.
  • 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 filter
  • 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 memory card included; just 7.5MB of on-board memory, Full camera manual only on CD-ROM

  • Excerpt: The EX-P505 leaves the starting blocks with an unfortunate handicap - its price tag. With a web price of around £320, it's locking horns with 7-megapixel models such as the Canon Digital Ixus 700, Pentax Optio 750Z and Nikon Coolpix 7900.

  • Summary: Size matters! Especially when a camera as small as the Casio EX-P505 has more features than models twice its size.

  • Summary: The Exilim Pro EX-P505's combination of photo and video features sounds promising, but its image quality is mediocre on stills, and its video doesn't measure up.
  • Pros: Easy to use, wide range of features
  • Cons: Picture quality is below average, amateurish software included

  • 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 models.

Casio Exilim EX-P505

1 April 2005
  • 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. Ideal for photographers who want a lightweight and versatile digicam, its 5x zoom lens isn't particularly fast, with six aperture settings, ranging from f3.3 to f7.4, depending on the focal length setting.
