“ Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 - Digital camera - 6.0 Mpix - optical zoom: 3 x - supported memory: MMC, SD „
I've had this camera for a good couple of years now and i'm happy to say its still going strong.
What prompted me to buy this over some other cameras on the market at the time was the features you got for the price, the Casio was significantly cheaper than some of the other brands and i was advised that the quality of the camera itself and photos were equally good if not superior to some other major brands. I'm happy to say i've not been dissapointed. The picture quality is excellent for a compact camera.
The main thing i like about this camera is its design. The sliver metal finish looks fantastic and hasnt aged or tarnished at all. Its slim case makes it easy to carry around in a pocket - great for quick snaps on holidays.
The camera itself has a 3x optical zoom which was pretty standard at the time, and the 4x digital zoom (which i'm not particualrly a fan of on any camera). The 6.0 megapixel resolution is more than adequate for everyday photos. The camera has video capture functionality with a built in microphone - the sound isnt great as you would expect but it is a feature i've used quite a few times. There are also a variety of settings in the menu for you to choose which best represents the picture you are trying to take, its called 'Best Shot' - there is also a shortcut button. There are quite a number of options, i typically use the 'scene/landscape' ones or 'gallery' settings.
The camera itself is easy to use. The large screen on the back is excellent. The controls on the rear of the camera are focussed around a central 'select' button with buttons around it - not dis-similar to navigating around a menu on a games console. There's a button for the timer, one to adjust the flash settings and another to use the 'best shot' feature.
This camera is an excellent pick for anyone looking for a simple, easy to use, stylish compact camera.
When it comes to digital cameras, computers and all this technical stuff you can call me a typical woman. Means: I don`t know more than necessary. As long as it works it`s alright.
Well, my Casio works and it does very good, even. With its 6 megapixel and 3x optical zoom I get really high quality pictures. They are absolutely precise as there is an anti shake DSP included. This feature really helps to minimise the danger of blurred photos.
The CASIO EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 is light and slim and therfore ideal to carry around in your handbag. It is small and handy but still got a big display. It`s alomst the size of the camera (2.5-inch TFT colour display). The camera`s silver metal case looks very stylish.
I didn`t have any difficulties to familiarise with my Casio. There was no need to read the handbook at all. If you are at a loss there is an icon help function which tells you about the setting you have currently selected.
One more thing I like is the pre-setting option. You really don`t have to be an expert to take cool pics. There are 33 pre-settings for a wide range of situations that help you to get the most of every pic.
In addition it has got an AV-socket (absolutely essential!), various flash options, a USB direct print, a movie function and loads of other features which you might need if you want to do more than just take photos.
All in all I can only recommend this camera. I bought mine 2 years ago in Germany for around 70 pounds. I`ve used it quite a lot since then and it still works alright!
Hope this helps.
You can find this review and many other I`ve written on www.best-price.com, too. It is similar to dooyoo but there are a lot more categories to rate, such as Health&Beauty, Food, Sports&Outdoor and a lot more.
The compact EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 is ideal for anyone who wants hassle-free pictures and to have a lot of fun. Thanks to Anti Shake DSP the risk of blurred photos caused by shaking hands or moving subjects is reduced. With high-resolution 6.0 megapixels, long-lasting lithium-ion battery, 3x optical zoom, and the brilliant 2.5-inch TFT color display you can take great pictures in any situation.
