      ~ Personal Experience ~

      I purchased this camera in Germany whilst on holiday about 5 years ago and have yet to see anywhere in the UK selling this model. At the time, this was a top of the range camera and there was no other that could match its 2.5" screen size. Over the years it has had lots and lots of use and abuse but has withstanded it all very well indeed. The quality photos are still as good as most new cameras when compared on a PC and it is now very rare to get an any where near affordable camera with a rechargable battery that you do not have to take out of the camera to charge up. With this Casio, I just sit it on its docking station (a mini usb connector) plug it into the wall and it charges up within a few hours. Whilst it is doing so, you can switch it on and view your photos if you want to. To transfer photos onto your PC or vice versa, it is very simple as there is no annoying software to install - you just drag and drop files into your desired folder. As well as taking photos on it, you can also take videos and play them back with sound thanks to its built in speaker. Also, the battery life on this camera is excellent. I have very rarely had to charge it up and don't even need to take the charger with me on a week's holiday.

      ~ Overall ~

      This is a stylish attractive camera that is very slim and modern looking even though it is quite old now, but you would never know of its if you saw one. It is a great quality and reliable camera that i would highly recommend if you can find any new ones going.
