Advantages: small, light, reasonable features
Disadvantages: no RAW
This camera is my back-up to a bigger DSLR, and I always have it with me. It's performed well for over a year. Build quality is fine, the battery door feels a little flimsy however, as does the lens cover.
The start-up time is ok, not quite as fast as I would like considering I carry it to take photos when I see a great opportunity. The lens takes a reasonably long time to deploy.
The buttons are slightly fiddly. The on/off button in particular requires a finger nail to depress it, and the zoom buttons are a little small; I have to look for them on the back sometimes.
The picture quality is good, having 14 megapixels is a lot to crop a picture later and still have an acceptable resolution, and the low light performance is fine too, better than a lot of other cameras at a similar price. Above ISO 400 noise does become quite pronounced however, and so I try to avoid taking pictures with high ISO. Some of the built-in modes like night scene are good for dealing with this automatically, as they use a low shutter speed instead.
The screen is bright and quite large, and the zoom, while modest, is sufficient for most subjects.
My family all have Casio cameras and though I've never had a technical fault my sister's similar camera developed a lens problem where it would whine and not deploy on start-up maybe 50% of the time.
One disadvantage for me is that it doesn't have a RAW mode - but I could hardly expect it to at the price, so it's not really an issue.
Summary: Great camera for the pirce
