Casio EX-Z75 Review
It’s been a month since I received my new compact camera, the Casio EX-Z75. Though it has had it’s ups and downs, overall it has been treating me great. Battery life seems great, I have not used the camera a whole lot like I’d like to but have been using it and still on first charge. Expect a second review on this camera later because as I said, I have not used it a whole lot like I would of liked too over the past month.
The positives, so far, that I like about the camera are that the pictures come out great when you view them on the computer. Another is the many modes you can choose from such as if I am taking a picture of someone with scenery, taking a picture of something close, taking a picture at night, taking a picture for eBay or similar or taking a picture of fireworks. The camera is very well designed and compact, very easy to carry around and in your pocket.
The negatives, so far, I hate the strap that it comes with. I know this might not be a problem to some, but I just hate the strap it comes with. It is too short and there is no lock on the strap to lock it to your wrist. Another is when view pictures on the 2.6 LCD, they don’t look they great, I don’t expect them too but if you happen to get this camera, your pictures will look great on your computer or any other device, do not worry.
In-between positive and negative, I have read at a few review sites of this camera and a-like that it is easy to turn on the camera by accidentally brushing against the power button or one of the other view buttons that will power the camera. I was worried about this and I am sure anyone else would be too. You do not need to worry, it’s not as bad as you may think. I’m sure it won’t happen as much as you think, probably a few times if any. What also is nice, if you do accidentally do this, it can tell if you did and it will retract the lens and shut down the camera.
The Casio EX-Z75 features 7.2 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom, auto and manual focus, auto exposure, movie mode, ISO 50-400, JPEG file format, 2.6-inch LCD screen, Secure Digital card storage with 8MB internal and a Lithium ion battery.
Here are some pictures I took with the camera.
