Casio Exlim S600 silv dig.
From the Manufacturer
The Exilim Card EX-S600 is the next evolution in this popular line of ultra-slim card-sized high resolution digital cameras. In addition to 6-megapixel photos, a major addition to this line is the EX-S600's ability to reduce camera shake instantaneously when recording quality MPEG-4 movies. The EX-S600 comes in silver, red, and blue.
The EX-S600's ability to take state-of-the-art movies instantly and easily adds to the versatility and fun of this powerful and high quality digital camera. The EX-S600 fits conveniently in any pocket to go where ever you go, ready to quickly capture special moments. No matter how spontaneous the situation, the Exilim engine's Anti Shake DSP reduces blurring caused by shaky hands and/or moving subjects, and the Auto Macro and Quick Shutter functions ensure that photos are properly focused.
In addition to enhanced resolution, the EX-S600's 3x zoom and increased battery life allowing up to 300 shots per battery charge provide significant photographic flexibility. The BEST SHOT menu includes the new Revive Shot, created specifically for taking digital pictures of old album photos. Revive Shot adjusts for obliquity as well as brightly refreshes faded colors. Whether framing a shot, reviewing images, or watching movies, everything is brighter when displayed on the adjustable 2.2-inch LCD--approximately twice as bright as previous models, making it ideal for outdoor use. Small enough to conveniently carry wherever you go, the EX-S600 has one-touch buttons that allow quick start up of the camera to view images and take pictures, as well as one for taking movies, all designed to quickly capture special moments. The EX-S600 connects easily to a TV or PC via the multi cradle, which also doubles as the battery charger.
The EX-S600 continues the Exilim Card tradition of offering cutting-edge technology packed into a small, slim, and stylish body. With high-quality photos, advanced movie recording capabilities, and a tremendous range of remarkable functions, Casio once again exceeds expectations by providing a conveniently portable means of preserving memories to be cherished for a lifetime.

compactness (extremely pocketable, even in tighter-fitting jeans)
battery life, i didn't really push it to the limits so i don't know what those limits are (i never ran out of battery though)
movie shooting, super easy to use and the anti-shake helps mitigate the small movements your hand makes
low light shooting... low light photo performance is not very good
the wrist strap is too short to wear on my wrist while shooting (i'm a 6' male), given the position of its attachment to the camera.
macro range is limited to like 6", which isn't so great
a lot of people complain about the image quality (i thought was very good in brightly lit conditions), but if you're a hardcore photographer, i don't think you will be placing high priorities on compactness, since you probably have lots of other photo equipment you carry, so such people probably won't be reading this review anyway.
having said all that, i found a great deal on casio's z850 and returned my s600. z850 has better macro and better low light shooting. i miss the s600 quite a bit though, and i find that the thicker z850 is not as great a fit in a jeans pocket. i would have been happy keeping the s600.
There are a few downsides. The cradle is fine for home use but not for travelling. When travelling I use a card reader to feed photos to my laptop and an aftermarket battery charger to charge the battery (Amazon lists many chargers, some that come with spare batteries, for the NP-20 battery). The camera has an instant-on feature that was annoying -- it would turn on in my pocket when the button was pressed lightly accidentally. But it was a menu-selectable item and I turned it off. The flash takes a few seconds to recharge for the next photo when you've taken a photo that demanded full flash energy (a distant subject), and it won't let you switch to viewing photos while that is going on. But the flash is stronger than the ones on my Canon cameras.
Overall, the negatives are minor. This is a great camera. You might be able to find it at a reduced price -- the Casio web site no longer lists information on it, which suggests they are phasing it out.
UPDATE July 5, 2007. The LCD screen failed on June 21. The top half would not display an image. I sent the camera to Casio's designated west-coast repair shop and was told I'd have to pay $140 to have it repaired! They claimed the LCD screen failed because I had exerted undue pressure on it. Maybe they're right. I had kept it in a lower pocket of my cargo pants, not in a rigid case. Part of the charm of a slim camera is that you can have it with you all the time, pull it out quickly, and use it to capture a photo op. But I've kept a Canon SD400 in the same pocket for years with no problem -- so the Casio, with its larger screen, is apparently more fragile. But $140 to repair it! New ones are now selling on Amazon for $180. I called Casio's customer service and found someone who agreed that $140 is excessive. She called the repair shop and got the price down to $98 (including tax and shipping). More reasonable, though if I had known the camera was this fragile I think would have looked for a more robust brand.
