What a mistake
on 2 March 2011
This camera looked quite appealing with a good spec and it was solid to the feel. I had other Casio cameras before and they were pretty good but dogged with sticking lenses and noisy zooms. The GPS facility was the ultimate feature for me.
I could not believe how good the GPS was. Absolutely amazing. It took literally seconds to locate positions, where other cameras etc, failed to even make a fix. I was delighted and after buying several cameras with the GPS feature, I was glad this seemed like a good purchase. Like the previous reviewer, the camera is packed with lots of features. The date/time stamping and even the GPS co-ordinates! But my delight was to be short lived.
I can honestly say, that this camera produces the worst pictures I have ever taken with a digital camera in all my 13 years of photography. The zoom is practically useless, noisy and cannot fix on an object satisfactorily. When it does manage to take a picture without the zoom, it is covered in dust/lighting marks and tremendously out of focus pics. With a plethora of settings, I could not manage to achieve any sort of acceptable picture from this camera!
I concluded that the camera must have been faulty - like the previous review. Quite an anti-climax to a camera which promises so much. I did not pursue another replacement.
