Pros Design, weight, & functionality
Cons Very unreliable
Summary We bought this camara in February 2007 for a trip to Australia, before purchasing we researched extensively. It was highly recommended by consumer reports. It worked as expected on the trip. We don't use camaras often so it was perhaps used once or twice after the trip. In July I charged it to take to a party, but it would not turn on. It is still completely lifeless.

Pros small, like the video button
Cons mediocre quality
Summary I had the EX-S100 for a long time and loved it, however I have been fairly disappointed with this camera. It only seems to take good pictures when there is plenty of light; either outside or up close with flash. Even in a well lit room there is a lot of fragmentation especially with dark colors. My dad and brother have other Casio models which do not experience these problems. Skip this model in the Exilim line.
Pros Best Shot mode, quick start up, one button video recording
Cons Bad in low light situations, auto focus does not always get it right
Summary Bought the camera for a trip to England. Got home with it started taking pictures and oh boy, was not happy with the results. I have the Cannon A620, but wanted a smaller camera. After playing with it for a while getting use to which Best Shot mode works with what situation, I really liked the results. We took over 500 pics, most are awesome. Dim to low light the camera does not perform well at all. Tried taking a scenic picture at night of a castle and the results were blurred. A tripod is necessary for these light shots.
Pros I love the size and ease of use.
Cons Too bad I don't have the time to learn how to use all the features!
Summary I researched this camera on cnet and www.digitaladvisor.com before purchasing it. I have two daughters 8 and 2, and needless to say they are the object of most of my photography - and they are never sitting still. But I also take some "artistic photos" for the Greeting cards I like to make for my friends. For an example of my work, please see: www.etsy.com search "annebellesstore".
Pros Small camera, great form
Cons Buttons are small for medium to large hands
Summary This is a great portable camera. You won't be disappointed in size, function, build quality and usability.
