The Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 is a pocket-sized camera. This sleek and compact camera is particularly good for outdoor use. This model is a higher-resolution version of Z600. The unique feature of this model is high-resolution image creation, with 10 mega pixels. The company advertises Z1000 as “non destructive zoom” camera, with the maximum zoom level of 17X. The Think Camera review claims this to be an exaggeration but adds that digital zoom is a useful feature in this camera. The downbeat of the mega pixel is the larger file size required for storing the images. Z1000 is fitted with a larger screen. The menu bar on the right-hand side takes up considerable space, making the viewing area slightly smaller than that of Z600 model. The super bright screen is user-friendly for viewing even in bright-light conditions.

The NeoCamera review points out that image colors are pleasing and natural. Excessive noise and chromatic aberrations tend to act as a hindrance to a good-quality image. However at ISO 50 and 100 ranges, the noise levels are low. This implies that the Z1000 camera can produce sharper pictures under bright conditions. The flash, as in all pocket sized cameras, is weak, resulting in a compromised quality of pictures under dull light and indoor situations. The Camras.co.uk review highlights high mega pixel in the sleek compact range, as the major selling point for the EX-Z1000 camera. The review says that the color and focus of outdoor shots are quite pleasing. The camera is equipped with a large 2.8-inched LCD screen for composing the image. According to the review, Z1000 model offers the widest range of scene mode options. Once a scene mode is selected, depending on the photo to be taken, the camera selects the predefined optimal exposure settings for taking the picture. The reviews state that EX-Z1000 is priced appropriately for the features offered.
