Pros Starts fast and shots quickly
Cons Defective manufacture or design
Summary About a month after getting this camera the LCD came up white--separation from back. This was blamed on me and after negotiation they dropped the charge for fixing "my abuse" from $375 to $275.
Since this was just before vacation I had to buy another camera, a Kodak that has been used a great deal and is very reliable.
Shortly after its return the optical zoom sometimes didn't work. Now it won't work at all. I am not going to pay again so I have a $600 camera that has cost me $875 and is now worthless.
You can be sure if your camera fails it will be blamed on you.
Pros Quick Start-up time, the batteries give me better performance that I could hope for, cycling through pictures taken is really quick in review mode, takes high quality photos, huge feature set, etc
Cons wish it was a little smaller, but if I had to sacrifice size for features, I'd leave it as it is, best balance of size and function I can find outside of dSLR
Summary As long as you're not a freak about tiny technology, you can't really go wrong with this camera.
Pros Excellent depth of photograph's comparable to a professional quality camera, extremly fast start up, intuitive controls, sleek design, Casio has done itself proud with this artwork
Cons little on the bulky side, cover to be bought seperately, lens cover makes a noise on movement
Pros Most intense flash I have ever experienced on a digital camera.
Cons Sluggish focus response, extreme delay for flash recharge even on lowest intensity setting, no printed manual, limited controls without using menu settings for every different shot, extremely poor results in low light. Was disappointed from first shot to
Pros image quality, resolution, ease of use
Cons broken flash
Summary I absolutely love this camera so it broke my heart when the flash broke after owning it just a year. Other than that, it's been fantastic and I highly recommend it - but maybe get the longer warranty
