Casio Exilim EX-Z77 Reviews

PhotographyReview reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“Lens quality is pretty good. There is some distortion, but it’s not too bad. There is also some softness on the edges of images shot at large apertures. But thankfully, there is no noticeable purple fringing.”

TrustedReviews reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“It is well made, easy to use, looks good and has good fast performance. It has an excellent autofocus system and works well in low light despite its lack of an assist lamp…However on value for money it’s hard to beat.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ePhotozine reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“It’s a nice sized camera, perfect for the pocket, but it might get lost in my handbag and there’s a chance I might mistake it for my phone. I have medium sized hands and the buttons are just big enough. Someone with big hands might have trouble. ”
Rating: ★★★☆☆ reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“The Casio Exilim EX-Z77 is one of the less expensive pocket sized cameras. It is disappointing that the photos it produces are not sharper. Personally I would either pay more for a better quality pocket sized camera or pay the same for a larger camera that takes a better photo. ”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“White balance is good for general scenes and the auto WB processing is rather good, higher ISO leaching some saturation. However, colour is natural and while you can apply presets for a variety of colour modes (monochrome and retro for example) all within the BS (Best Shot) modes.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DigitalCameraReview reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“The flash on the Z77 performed well. In an almost completely dark room, it did a good job of illumination to about 12 feet or so. The camera automatically sets the sensitivity at ISO 200 for flash shots for the best exposure. However, at ISO 200, things can be a bit grainy. You can “fix” the ISO at 50 or so for better noise performance…”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“While I was not moved by Casio’s new Exilim Z77, this model does offer image quality that is comparable to other manufacture’s models as well as a plethora of useful pre-programmed “Best Shot” scene modes. Not to mention, one of the easiest to use fully automatic modes (Easy Mode). Taking this into consideration, with an MSRP of US$230 or under, I feel the EX-Z77 offers a good value for an “ultra-compact” 7-megapixel model.”

InfoSync reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“Image Quality – Very good. With the right lighting, the images taken with the EX-Z77 looked crisp, clear and focused. Nighttime shooting was more problematic, as any long-distance photos without optimal lighting looked extremely noisy. The camera captured fast moving subjects well, like a man on a bike, or a moving car or bus on the street. We had less success when we ourselves were moving, as supposed to the subject.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET.UK reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z77 and writes;
“utofocus is reasonably quick, even in lower light, although the face detection is predictably patchy in darker situations. Even in decent light there is also some evidence of focus softening around the edge of images. In low light, an ISO setting of 400 delivers surprisingly low noise, with an unexpected crispness of image. Sadly, ISO 800 is predictably noisy with plenty of purple fringing.”
Rating: ★★½☆☆
