ImagingResource reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S770 and writes;
“If you like your cameras slim and trim and like a lot of scene modes, the Casio EXILIM EX-S770 is a good choice. Packed with features, the 7.2 megapixel Casio S770 includes a 3x optical zoom, 34 Best Shot modes, a wide-screen movie mode, a very nice 2.8-inch LCD, and a Rapid Flash mode that lets you fire off three flash shots without having to wait for a recharge. Another interesting new feature is the Casio S770′s ability to convert and transfer web pages, emails, and business documents for storing and viewing on the camera’s display. While image quality could have been better — especially its spotty low-light ability and its aggressive anti-noise processing — the Casio S770 is a decent choice if you’re looking for an ultraslim digital camera…So while the Casio EXILIM EX-S770 has a lot going for it in style and features, it just misses out on being named a Dave’s Pick. “

DigitalCameraInfo reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S770 and writes;
“The Casio Exilim S770 has High and Normal burst modes. The High mode snaps a shot every half-second, but for only 3 pictures at a time. After the 3 pictures, the camera takes 2.5 seconds to write them to the memory card before shooting another round. The Normal burst mode shot images continuously without a hiccup, but wasn’t as fast with a shot taken every 1.4 seconds. ..It has an ultra-slim body that comes in trendy colors and has tiny buttons. It is as cuddly as a box – in other words, it’s not that comfortable to hold and handle…Basically, the S770 is a typical ultra-compact digital camera with its standard resolution and 3x optical zoom lens, but it adds a few frills. If you’re going to use those frills, then the $299 price tag isn’t all that bad. If all you want is a camera and you won’t ever transfer documents (or you have a Mac and can’t transfer data), then there are other digital cameras that can fulfill your needs for a cheaper price. “

PCMag reviews the Casio Exilim EX-S770 (rating: 4/5) and writes;
“The EX-S770 did pretty well on my performance tests. It booted up in just 1.7 seconds, but its 5.2-second recycle time was very slow, and I noticed a touch of shutter lag. Burst mode is limited to three shots at a time, although I managed to fire these shots off very quickly. Using a flash didn’t slow the process down, either. The EX-S770 has an average resolution of 1,650 lines, which is very good for a 7.2MP camera. “

Megapixel reviewed the Casio Exilim EX-S770 where they rated the camera 7.4 for its funtionality and 9 for photographic qualities;
“The EX-S770 is well-crafted, and can actually be slid into a pocket without a second thought. However, a word of advice to the wise: back pockets should be avoided…Image quality is also very good. Despite the terminally overcast weather I was able to take some decent test shots, and I was suitably impressed by the level of detail, colour rendition, exposure accuracy and noise control. The lens does suffer from very visible spherical distortion at its widest angle setting, but provides very good overall sharpness right into the corners, with no chromatic aberration visible. There was also a refreshing lack of colour fringing on high-contrast shots….Apart from the wide-angle distortion and the CD manual I have nothing but praise for the S770. In my opinion it is currently the best ultra-compact digital camera on the market. Considering build quality, design, performance, value for money and photographic results it is comfortably ahead of the competition in every respect.”

TrustedReviews reviewed the Casio Exilim EX-S770 where they rated the camera 9/10 and wrote;
“The Casio Exilim EX-S770 is a good camera that offers good image quality. It’s body design, however, is so thin that it can be a touch impractical. Too often, while holding the camera, the left-hand index finger touches the DATA button, turning off the capture mode, loosing the opportunity for the shot. So while it may be appealing because of the ease with which it can be carried, users should make time to get used to handling it before trying to capture important photos.”

PopPhoto reviewed the Casio Exilim EX-S770 where they rated the camera 78/100 and wrote;
“In using this camera, I kept going back to how well thought out many of the features are. It’s obvious that Casio designed this for the novice photographer, but surprisingly, it gives you enough options that you can set up many of the camera’s functions manually. ISO, Exposure compensation, focus and other features can all be manually adjusted. The exposure however is strictly automatic, but with 35 different scene modes, you have your choices available here as well. Even with all of these options, however, the overall image quality feels a little disappointing. Many of the images lack that snap and sharpness available from other cameras, and even at a slow maximum ISO of only 400, noise was still clearly apparent on the monitor. Still, those who are inexperienced in digital imaging may be satisfied with the quality that the EX-S770 offers. The design, outside of this, is really exceptional and very user friendly.”

CamerasUK reviewed the Casio Exilim EX-S770 where they rated the camera 78/100 and wrote;
“The main attraction of the Casio Exilim EX-S770 is its slim shape and its extra gadget type features. If these prove to be the main requirements when you are buying then you will have to accept a degree of compromise with this camera when it comes to picture quality, especially in lowlight situations….Through its extra slim shape and movie features the Casio Exilim EX-S770 offers something different to other digital cameras. Photo quality is fair without ready hitting the heights, but if you are set on buying a truly small camera then this is an option worth considering.”

CNET reviewed the Casio Exilim EX-S770 where they rated the camera 7/10 and wrote;
“The Casio Exilim EX-S770′s slim, stylish form is hard to beat. It’s colorful, completely metallic, and small enough to take anywhere. It delivered excellent performance in our lab tests. Unfortunately, its iffy photo quality dulls the camera’s overall glow. If you want an ultraslim shooter but don’t think the S770 is quite for you, the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-T50 offers optical image stabilization and higher ISO sensitivity for a bit more cash.”

DigitalCameraReview reviewed the Casio Exilim EX-S770 and wrote;
“The Casio Exilim EX-S770 is definitely a head turner. Even though my review unit was “just silver”, its looks and finish raised a lot of eyebrows. People just like small shiny things, I guess. Maybe it’s the 2.8 inch wide LCD. Anyway, besides its good looks and LCD, the S770 is built well and is very pocketable at only 0.7 inches thick. Once you get past the cover of this book, the camera also takes good pictures, has great battery life, and a very bright LCD, even outside in the sun. If you’re looking for a stylish, ultra-compact/slim digital camera and you don’t need manual exposure modes, the S770 would be a good choice. While it may not be the cheapest ultra-slim camera, its good image quality, excellent battery life and the wide, bright LCD make it a good buy.”

ComputerActive reviewed the Casio Exilim EX-S770 where they rated the camera 4/5 and wrote;
“Operationally the camera impresses with its ease of use; it powers up instantly, and there’s little shutter delay when taking a shot. Images write to memory in around two seconds…Overall
The Casio Exilim Card EX-S770 has the looks and the style, just a shame it stints on the issue of light sensitivity. Still, arguably its ease of use is a greater draw for the snapshot market at which it’s aimed. Out favourite Exilim to date.”
