Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 Reviews

Cameras.uk reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“I found the Exilim EX-Z1200 to be a bit inconsistent during my tests…I was surprised at the sharpness of the photos this camera managed to take. It is certainly above average in that area. I also liked the colours it produced. There is a concern over inconsistent shutter delay and when the flash is on the response of the camera becomes rather sluggish.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“the Z1200 produces generally excellent image quality..It has superior build quality, good handling and class-leading performance, and decent image quality. The only real question is whether you feel it’s worth paying a significant premium for a trivial increase in image resolution. ”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCW.UK reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“Image quality is reasonably good, although 12 megapixels are too many. File sizes are huge at around 7.8MB for a full-quality JPEG and the step up from 10 megapixels isn’t particularly noticeable. But those who edit photos on a PC will find they stand up to manipulation and can produce very pleasing results.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“In our speed tests the Z1200 performed quite well. Its 0.06 second shutter lag is quite impressive and the two second power up time and 2.1 seconds between shots should mean you won’t miss much of the action…f you subscribe to the theory that more megapixels is better, then Casio’s Exilim EX-Z1200 will be right up your alley. Sporting a 12.1 megapixel sensor, it captures extremely crisp pictures and offers a range of manual shooting options combined with a sturdy design, making it a strong all around choice.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET.UK reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“The EX-Z1200 is the first 12-megapixel compact camera, and pulls it off in style. The monster megapixel count is no gimmick, with great picture quality and decent speed, despite the massive file size. If megapixel count was all there was to this camera, you’d have to have a very good reason to justify spending the extra money for the number 12 on the front. Equally, the other features, while useful, are available in cheaper cameras of the same size.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“The Z1200 does a good job – at lower ISOs. As you’d expect, with 12-megapixels of resolution available surprisingly detailed images are achievable at ISO 50 and 100 and without much noise. Above ISO 200 though, things get worse, much worse. Detail drops quickly away (particularly in backgrounds) as noise processing tries to sort things out for you. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“The Z1200′s 12-megapixel stills generally look very good. The high resolution lets fine details, such as small text and hair, come through quite clearly. While it lacks any sort of high-sensitivity setting to really test it, noise tends to stay incredibly low in almost all of our shots. A gentle grain starts to appear at ISO 400, but you probably won’t even notice it unless you make very large prints.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ePhotozine reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z1200 and writes;
“With a black matt finish to the metal-alloy, gunmetal grey top strip and buttons plus joypad finished with a concentric metal effect, it looks classy enough, though it’s a little more chunky than you might be expecting. Not a bad thing, more Beyonce than Kylie, that’s all. The zoom rocker has a high quality finish and works solidly, the lens housing is all metal, and the memory card and battery can be accessed easily enough.”
