Another excellent Casio Exilim camera,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 Digital Camera - Black (12.1MP, 12.5x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
I have previously owned two different Casio Exilim cameras (an EX-S3 (3MP) and an EX-S600 (6MP), and reading reviews of various cameras in this resolution and price range the only negative review I could find was about the interface; I can safely say the interface is pretty much the same. That said, I do like the interface (I'm familiar with it I guess) but I do occasionally find it hard to find the exact menu item required; given the number of functions the camera supports I guess it just takes a little getting used to.
In terms of functions, the camera takes some excellent photos in various modes and in a variety of lighting settings. The HDR mode has made a colleague jealous when compared to his high-end Canon SLR! Okay, I'm sure the Canon will beat it in almost all other regards, but the Exilim EX-ZR1000 camera costs 1/6th that of the Canon...
For those wanting the convenience of a small camera (i.e. no lugging around of big body cameras and/or SLR lenses), packed full of functionality, the ability to record movies (in full 1080p HD, although I have yet to do that) and spend under £250, then this camera is definitely the answer for you.
One last item to note is that, as with all high-speed / high-resolution cameras, a fast memory card is ESSENTIAL (and especially when using the Exilim's HDR and CS modes), and only a decent Class 10 SDHC (or better) memory card will do - anything less will not give you the best from this camera...
