Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Exilim Zoom EX-Z70 is a new addition to Casio's stylish series of Exilim digital cameras, delivering an effective 7.2-megapixel resolution.

The Exilim series has a reputation for transforming the digital camera market. Slim and stylish, packed with superior functionality, and astonishingly easy to use, Exilim cameras combine the benefits of compact size, intuitive controls, large displays, and long battery life. The release of the new EX-Z70 complements the already available EX-Z60, a high-performance, 6.0-megapixel model released earlier in 2006. The EX-Z70 increases the resolution to 7.2 megapixels for even more detailed, beautiful photographs.

Like its forerunner, the EX-Z70 features Easy Mode, a user-friendly camera menu for beginners. Easy Mode simplifies the wide array of camera settings to three easy menus (image size, flash, and self-timer). With Easy Mode, users can make camera settings using simple onscreen descriptions, enabling even beginners to get started right away with the fun of photography. A combination of other powerful features ensures that beautiful photos are captured with just a touch of the shutter button:

  • Anti Shake DSP for reducing photo blur due to shaky hands or moving subjects.
  • Best Shot function for getting optimal photo results simply by selecting a sample image of the type of scene the user wants to shoot.
  • Large 2.5-inch LCD for great visibility.
The camera's lightweight aluminium body comes finished in either luxurious black or high-quality silver. The top of the body is rounded to give it a soft look, and the overall design is a perfect blend of fashion and functionality. The EX-Z70 captures those priceless moments in a stylish package that puts superior image quality in the palm of every user's hand.

I can't rave enough about this camera. It's simply the most simple camera I've ever had the pleasure of taking pictures with. I love the fact that it's about the size of a deck of cards. TINY! I think the "best shot" mode is a great idea. It takes all the fussiness out of taking anything other than a normal shot and it even makes taking routine shots a breeze. Turn the camera on and use the default automatic setting or hit the "best shot" button and you have a menu of options to tell the camera exactly what you're photographing. Examples: portrait, scenery, candlelight, sports, sundown, autumn leaves, etc. etc. etc. You just click on your choice and the camera adjusts to the optimal setting for your subject. The pictures that I have taken have been no less than remarkable. I'm a novice at taking digital photos so this model was a great choice for me because it takes out all the guesswork and difficult attempts to adjust settings that I don't even understand. The battery has a decent life span too! I would rate this a 10 out of 10.

I have had this camera for about a week now. I bought it to replace a camera that I loved, but which I decided was just too big for my pocket. The picture quality so far has been excellent. I have not seen any of the artifacts that I often saw with my 4 MP Kodak.

The size of the camera and the sleek black outer shell can;t be beat. It is exactly what I was looking for!

The only warning is related to the battery. I had it in my pocket (without a case), having recharged it fully before I went out. When I went to take a picture, the battery was dead. I must have touched something in my pocket that caused it to go on. I have since purchased a case, so I am hopeful that will not happen again.

One additional note - the only way to recharge the camera is to take the battery out and put it in a charger. This is not an optimal design. There apparently is a cradle available for the camera at the casio web site, but they are out of stock.

I can't begin to tell you how wonderful this little camera is. I am a graphic design student and all my teachers require us to take our own pictures to use in our projects. Before I had this camera, I had a Kodak 3.2 megapixel camera and although I loved that camera it just wasn't powerful enough to meet my needs. So after months of research, I decided that this would be the ideal camera to meet my needs. I'm proud to say I made a wise purchase.

Let's review the positives.

-It's slim and light weight!

-Anti-shake makes it impossible to blur up your pictures, trust me I've done the tests.

-It's extremely easy to use.

-Nice big view screen (a huge problem with my Kodak)

-Fast shutter speed (not the case with my Kodak)

-Various kinds of modes and flashes

-The most important feature is the photos are absolutely wonderful with this camera. If you are a professional photographer this camera would make you proud.

Now as with every product, there are always a few negatives and this camera isn't any different.

-It comes with minimal accessories and no case. Because this is a nice little camera, I recommend you also purchase a case so you don't hurt it.

-As with all digital cameras, the battery life is a little on the low side. You can get in a lot of shots but I recommend buying a back up just in case. I purshcased mine on ebay for a mere $8. If you are lucky you could get that deal as well.

-You do have to take the battery out to charge it and it's a pain. I would try to buy a cradle if you can but if you don't it's not a huge hassel, just less steps.

A non-standard USB port means there is one extra cable I need to carry around on trips. Also, the USB cable blocks the battery and memory card compartment door, so you cannot open it without disconnecting the USB cable first. You also cannot charge the battery while it is in the camera -- you have to take it out every time. Forget about charging through the USB cable.

Most settings are accessible only through menus, and the camera does not remember any of them when you turn it off. This includes EV, ISO speed, and white balance. You can choose one of these to be adjustable with the left and right directional keys, but only one.

The "Anti Shake" feature is a joke. Do not be misled -- this is not an optical feature equivalent to Image Stabilization on Canon cameras or Vibration Reduction on Nikon cameras. It just increases the ISO speed; Not only does this increase the already bad image noise, but it can be done on almost any other camera.

The images turn out very noisy at anything above ISO 100.

Now, the good: The interface and menu system is well thought out. The camera is very responsive. It feels very solid, with good build quality. The relatively small form factor is very convenient -- the main reason I got this camera. The battery life has been very good so far. Although the images are very noisy, 7 megapixels allows some room to "recover" quality by shrinking them.
