Summary: Wow, although the design was cool when I saw this unit at 2011 CES and then on sale during black Friday, I have now realized this is piece of junk. I should of known when the Casio booth reps would not show this camera to the public, only the press in small controlled blips. Some screaming issues here: No flash? No optical zoom? No removable battery? Proprietary USB connection?
"Looks cool but takes bad pictures, difficult to use"
20 August 2011
Pros: Sporty looks is about the only good thing. It takes pretty good HD video for YouTube type broadcast, if that's all your looking for (sound is only mono).
Cons: 1) Bad pictures! Claims 12 megapixels but iPhone 4 takes clearer photos. Really wide angle fixed lens puts barrel distortion on all pictures. No optical zoom. NO FLASH. Forget about taking pictures in dim light. 2) Touch screen has very poor response
