Prior to this I have had 2 great exilm ex- z75 casio cameras which were good sound cameras in a metal case and took first class pictures and video. This EX-Z33 is cheap , but it feels cheap also and the picture quality is a step backwards .I do not normally complain but I am thinking of sending this back to amazon.Look out for the older exilm cameras which have a quality feel about them.
Ok, so the quality might not be as good as some other camera's but for this price and this many pixels and features its a real bargain. I bought this camera, beacuse its small and robust enough to be carried in my pocket while climbing in Snowdonia and Scotland. Its also not cheap enough that you won't be so worried about it while carrying around.
I actually had my first one stolen while on holiday in S America so purchased another with no hesitation. Photo quality isn't as great as some other cameras but are perfectly adequate as a good record of your holidays!

On 4th of November 2009, I bought this camera to use just as a back-up on my holidays. By mid June 2010, LCD screen went red, it was failing to get switched on with full battery & finally stop working with a message "LENS ERROR".
Very disappointing indeed, I am not happy with Amazon and I am really thinking to re-consider to buy elswhere. I am waiting what they say first. I must admit this the first time I have suffered such a loss with Amazon.
