Another Casio winner
on October 29, 2013
First let me say, I was scared to death to purchase a camera in Japanese language setting and not be able to switch it to English. BUT it was so easy to find the setting. Literally took me 3 seconds to figure it out and I'm not that tech savvy! Don't be deterred by this, you can do it. I used the CASIO website, opened up the manual and read up on it before purchasing. So glad I did.
This is my 2nd CASIO Exilim. Previous model was the EX-S10 that I've owned for about 5 years and traveled the world with it; literally. However my favorite camera lacked nighttime photo quality, as many point & shoots do. It was time to update and so I began debating the top notch name-brand cameras on the market such as Nikon, Cannon and Sony. Sadly I was not impressed with their speed and functionality. I found myself going back to CASIO.
The CASIO EX-ZR1000 is everything in one neat little package! It's quick, turn the power button on and it's ready within seconds to take a shot. There is panoramic built into the camera, no need to "attach" photos when you upload them onto your computer. The HDR and ART photos so far have been amazing; and fun! Premium Auto Pro function is great for when I'm being lazy and don't want to fuss with adjustments and still get great shots. Also has Best Shot which makes colors pop. The ZR1000 feels solid in your hands, not plastic and flimsy. Flash works great, not overbearing and blinding but bright enough. There are advanced settings for more advanced users and simple settings for those of us who just want a good shot every time!
