Casio Exilim EX-S10 Reviews

CNET reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“Although its tiny size and just-average image quality may be dealbreakers for some, the Casio Exilim EX-S10 comes equipped with tons of features that will appeal to snapshooters who want an easy-to-use camera that delivers more than simply point-and-shoot control.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

ImagingResource reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“Bottom line, this is a very appealing little camera, with a nice heft and very stylish looks. It has a few nifty features, but we felt that its limitations were too great to be overcome by its good looks.”
Rating: N/A

Pocket-Lint reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“performance is very speedy with an almost instant start-up of around 1-second to making the first shot, and a claimed 0.008 shutter release time lag. In practice, however I found the shutter lag was still distinct and could affect composition on fast moving subjects.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CamerasUK reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“For a super slim camera the Exilim EX-S10 performs very well. I like the bright, sharp pictures the camera produces. It also has one or two useful features such as a good sized LCD screen. Well worth a look.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“This camera is very easy to use, and comes loaded with pre-programmed “best shot” modes for any shooting situation. The only setback is the outdoor exposures were sometimes a little overexposed. With a MSRP of around US$250, it’s a good value.”

ePhotozine reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“I’m extremely impressed with this camera. The expansion of the smile detection auto trigger to include panning and blur detection are a fabulous step forward to help people improve their quality of photographs.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

InfoSync reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“the EX-S10 has good noise management.. ISO-50 is functionally noiseless, noise isn’t readily perceivable at full zoom until ISO-200, isn’t notable sub-100% zoom until ISO-800, and even at 1600 the noise is tightly packed enough as to not be too distracting. ”
Rating: ★★★½☆ reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“Start-up time is impressively fast, capturing the first image in less than 2 seconds despite the distance the lens has to expand out of the slim frame. With a PNY 4GB SDHC card, shot-to-shot time is 3 seconds.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S10 and writes;
“In terms of images the camera is also hit and miss, with reasonable but not great results. A stand out feature is the dynamic range but other than that the camera produces too many blurred, noisy and distorted images.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Casio Exilim EX-S10 Press Release

Casio’s EXILIM series was born with the appearance in 2002 of a “wearable card camera” — a digital camera with a very slim form. The new EXILIM Card EX-S10 maintains all of the powerful functionality of the cameras that were later developed in that line (high pixel count, zoom functionality, LCD monitor, photo functions, etc.) but it also embodies a return to a stylish thin form and a strong design presence.

*As at January 6, 2008, for 10-megapixel class digital cameras. Based on Casio survey.

Thin form with a refined design The camera’s stylish body, measuring 94.2 mm wide, 54.6 mm high and 15.0 mm thin (13.8 mm at the thinnest part) is the product of Casio’s relentless pursuit of thinness. It is finished according to two design requirements — a high quality feel created by the stainless steel body, and a unique beauty derived from its coloring. The camera comes in four colors — red, blue, silver, and black.

10.1 million effective pixels, and a 3x optical zoom lens This new camera’s thinner, smaller body was made possible without sacrificing high resolution image quality using a newly developed 1/2.3 inch CCD. Its high resolution images can be used to create beautiful prints even when enlarged or when the image is cropped.

2.7-inch wide and bright LCD offers high contrast The camera incorporates Casio’s newly developed Super Clear LCD. This produces extremely sharp and vivid images, thanks to its high contrast ratio and its 230,160 dot high resolution. The display can be viewed easily from above, below, left or right thanks to its wide viewing angle, and it is extremely bright, making it easy to see even in daylight.

Auto Shutter function automatically records the moment of a smile or the instant when hand shake ceases Using motion blur detection technology, the camera can automatically take a photo at the instant when hand shake or subject movement ceases. Users can also automatically capture the moment of a smile, the instant when subject movement due to panning ceases, or the moment when their own face fills the frame as they point the camera towards themselves.

iTunes-compatible H.264 video The camera uses the H.264 video standard, which utilizes the AAC audio codec widely enjoyed in Apple’s iPod, etc. It is also possible to record movies in an appealing wide format. The camera also features a Movie Button which makes movie recording easy.
