CNET Asia’s Kevin Wu Li has posted a review on Casio Exilim EX-Z850, an 8.1 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera featuring 3x Optical Zoom lens (35 – 210mm equivalent) with anti-shake technology, and a 2.5″LCD screen. He gives the camera 6.8 out of 10 (good) and writes;
“Our images produced nice saturated colors which we liked but some of our pictures exhibited blown-out highlights which caused us to lose some details. In ambient surroundings, the camera produced decent captures in Night mode. However, with flash, there was an unnatural brightness in some of our images. The objects in the center of the picture tended to be brighter than the surroundings.
The anti-shake feature had its limitations when it came to moving subjects or shaky hands. Proper photo-taking techniques still had to be observed. Noise wasn’t an issue and was reasonably contained even at the maximum sensitivity level of ISO 400.”
