Casio EX-Z75 Reviews

DigitalCameraInfo reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z75 and writes;
“While the outside looks good, the inside needs some work. The Casio EX-Z75 runs a little behind the times. Consumers shouldn’t expect to find advanced features like mid-range optical zoom (above 3x) or optical image stabilization at the $200 price point, but the Exilim EX-Z75 is bested by some of its competitors that offer face detection technology, higher sensitivity ranges, or wide panoramic shooting capabilities”

ImagingResource reviews the Casio Exilim EX-Z75 and writes;
“Regardless of the experience, you should judge a tree by its fruit, and though we’d call the Casio Z75′s images competent at ISO 50, they quickly degrade at ISO 100, until they’re really soft at ISO 400. These images will still make a passable 5×7, so if all you’re planning is 4×6, you might be perfectly happy with the Casio Z75. If you plan on enlarging, stick to ISO 50 and find yourself a lot of light.”

ePhotozine reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“Unfortunately, the camera is quite unstable when stood on its own and can fall over easily which is not a good thing for your shiny screen. It is made from metal which is always a good thing. It is heavy and solid and looks well built. Movement of the lens is quiet and smooth and if it wasn’t for the immense size of the menus, it would be easy to navigate and quick to move around in.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“Another outstanding pocket compact from Casio, the Exilim EX-Z75 is an ideal camera for general and social snapshot photography. It is well made, sensibly but attractively designed, very easy to use and has much better performance than its low cost would suggest. Picture quality is very good as well. It may lack a few features such as image stabilisation and an AF assist lamp, but on the whole it is excellent value for money.”

RegHardware reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“Casio has somehow overcome the challenge of creating a camera that is compact, lightweight and cute, but still act big. This model features a large 2.6-inch LCD screen, it shoots at 7.2 megapixels, and it records pictures, video and audio…In summary, there are many people who get intimidated by the bells and whistles of an advanced camera. Those people shouldn’t be forced to take bad pictures, and this camera gives them the best of both worlds.”

PopPhoto compares the Casio Exilim EX-Z75 to Pentax Optio M30 and writes;
“And the Winner Is…In using both cameras, I found the Pentax to be very likable and clearly the leader in this race. The only real area where the Casio prevailed was in its easy to use menu system. But the shortcomings of the Casio — including the button design, lower quality screen, lesser build quality and overall slow performance — is nagging. I kept asking myself what justifies a $55 price difference with a camera that in most ways is identical to the Pentax, yet had lesser apparent quality and features. I wasn’t able to find a good answer to this question. Add up the Pentax Optio M30′s solid construction, facial recognition, well-designed modes in both still and video, higher ISO settings and sharper LCD Viewfinder/Display screen, and it emerges as the better deal.”

CNET reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“Given its price, and the fact that most cameras in this price range yield similar image quality and often slower performance, the Casio Exilim EX-Z75 is actually a decent deal and sports a more attractive design than much of its competition. However, if you’re looking for a camera that captures pleasing pictures, you should really shell out a little extra cash and go for something such as Canon’s PowerShot SD1000 or Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-T10. If you’d like another option in this price range, you can take a look at the Olympus FE-240, though it’s much slower and doesn’t offer as sleek a design or the plethora of scene modes you’ll get with the Z75. ”

DigitalCameraReview reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“While the Z75 is not a huge upgrade over its predecessors, it still provides an affordable slim camera with good performance. Image quality is not knock your socks off amazing, but will please many consumers on a budget looking for a slim, stylish camera. The other good things about this camera are the battery life and very quick performance. Pros: Nice looks and good build quality, Quick operation, Good battery life, Wide LCD is nice for usability (but note comment below about low pixel count). Cons: Noise performance not impressive, Low resolution of LCD makes it hard to judge image quality on camera, No focus assist light”

CrunchGear reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“Should you buy the Casio Exilim EX-Z75? Truthfully, no. This camera hasn’t stood up to what I’d call “Casio quality” and it fails to showcase what Casio’s Exilim line of cameras are capable of. The buttons on this camera are misplaced and are hard to press, the new interface is hardly friendly, and just look at that outdoors shot — totally atrocious. My advice is to shop around and maybe check out some of Canon and Sony’s $199 to $249 offerings. You may lose a megapixel or two, but you don’t need them anyway and you’ll most likely be happier with the results. The Exilim EX-Z75 is a nice effort from Casio, but it’s simply just not good enough.”

Pocket-Lint reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“The Casio EXILIM Zoom Z75 is, in reality, more a makeover of the Z70 than a major leap forward; that larger LCD being one of the key changes. The picture quality is good though and the addition of that larger screen and widescreen capture both for stills and movies adds a little zap to its snapping abilities. The competitive price and nice looks should also ensure the new model is one keenly contesting the increasingly crowded marketplace and is certainly worth a look.”

ThinkCamera reviews the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“..the EX-Z75 puts up a good effort to produce quality images, though it misses the mark a bit. The centre of the lens tends to reasonably sharp, but it rapidly gets very soft towards the edges…The Casio EX-Z75 is a beautiful, well-designed camera – fiddly buttons aside. It’s very easy to take good pictures using the Best Shot modes and avoiding the Easy Mode. The enormous screen, 7.2MP sensor and 3x zoom gives the EX-Z75 a spec to be proud of. If only it was as easy to get really sharp pictures, the camera could be recommended without hesitation. As it stands, the image quality towards the edge of the frame can be troubling and lets down the otherwise high quality images. That aside, the EX-Z75 is great to use and makes the ideal in-the-pocket, go-anywhere camera. You need never miss a shot again.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET has a preview of the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 and writes;
“When we tested it, we were disappointed by the EX-Z70′s soft, artifact-filled images and slightly awkward power button. If Casio corrects these problems for the EX-Z75, it might shape up to be a very good compact shooter.”
