CNET have currently published a review of the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z60, a point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 21.02.06), featuring a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) with 3x Optical Zoom lens (35 – 210mm equivalent), and a 2.5″LCD screen.
“You can’t avoid soft, noisy, overprocessed photos, though. The colors aren’t bad, but in shots taken using ISO 50 at the highest-quality setting, you can see halos around edges and a whitish stippling. The Exilim EX-Z60 also clips highlights, producing large, flat white areas in outdoor shots. It’s hard to tell if red-eye reduction works; the lens’s chronic chromatic aberration results in a blown-out catch light in people’s eyes with purple fringing that overwhelms any red. “
