5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality camera for stills & video, 29 Dec 2009
By 
This review is from: Casio Exilim EX-H10 Digital Camera - Black (12.1MP, 10x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Casio H10 is a quality camera that excels in both standard still photographs and High Definition Video. It has some really cool features that make using it fun, and I am confident it is fairly future proof.

Firstly, the 3.0" LCD display is a joy to look at - colours are really bright and sharp and it has the capability to bring your images to life. I'm really pleased with this. The 10x zoom is extraordinary for such a small and compact camera, and subjects are still reasonably clear at 10x, which is surprising.

The Video mode is good too, and while shooting a video, you can also press the shutter button which will take a picture of the frame you are in - without stopping your recording. I actually found this by accident but I am appreciating the neat feature more often now I've discovered it.

Whatever settings you applying whilst the camera is on - such as the flash, are remembered the next time you turn it on - which helps to avoid damaging your Nan's retinas when you have to quickly grab and shoot.

The rechargeable battery is really a highlight of this model - Casio claim it can take 1000 photos on a single charge, and although I haven't been able to test this, the battery doesn't drain when turned off like some do, and it arrived fully charged. It's a shame that the charger could not be abolished, and Casio let us charge the battery whilst inside the camera, but I'm yet to see a compact camera in this price bracket (without going up to SLR) that does this.

So, let's take a look at what's included in the box. We have the H10 itself, the documentation, a wrist strap (silver), an AV lead, a charger and a mains lead, The NP-90 battery and the CD-ROM, which contains the software - YouTube uploader and Photo Transport - no word on Windows 7 support from Casio, Vista OK though.

No memory card included, no surprise here so I picked up a ByteStor 16GB SDHC card which works well with this camera. Shame on Casio for not including a case - if I'm paying a premium for a camera, I expect a simple case at least.

I have managed to take some wonderful shots with this camera, and it seems to work wonders without messing with the settings. For the advanced user, there seems to be a lot to play about with but this is above my league. This could actually be a great family camera, Mum can just snap away happily while dad perfects his ISO levels! What? Yeah, exactly!?

All in all, great camera. I'm confident the battery won't let me down, and the unit is solidly built. Buy a decent case for it and you've got the perfect imaging device.
