Casio Exilim Card EX-S600 Reviews and Comparisons

The Star (link dead): packs in unbelievable lots of features, including dual-functions as camera and camorder. Even better, it can also take still shots while recording. This means that if I see something interesting while recording, I can just press the shutter button to snap a picture of it. It will be then stored as a still shot. Overall, the S600 makes a great training camera for beginners who are thinking about sharpening their photography skills.

Pros: Slim and light; lots of features; takes good shots

Cons: Lens not wide enough; menu system might be confusing for some

DigitalCameraInfo (link dead): The EX-S600 isn’t our style. It’s very small and the design is bold, but the sad fact is that these are the most appealing things about the camera, and they won’t help anyone take pictures. We appreciate that the camera is made of metal, but that’s only a good start at making a durable imager. A camera is only as tough as its most vulnerable part, and the EX-S600’slens assembly and unsealed battery and memory compartment are pretty vulnerable. If the color and size were wrapped around a good imaging system, if the camera were tough enough to go where it can fit, and if it were easy to hold securely, we’d be enthusiastic. As it stands, there is clearly a market for tiny cameras; however, they generally come with some compromises. Unfortunately, for the S600, one of them is image quality.

Steve’s DigiCams reviews Casio S600 and concludes that “the Exilim EX-S600 wears the Casio name proudly, continuing the tradition of a durable, lightweight model that can be tucked away just about anywhere, while still capturing great photos and offering outstanding performance. Not to mention, there are loads of user-friendly exposure modes. With an MSRP of around $399, we feel it offers a good value, and is sure to please the family, business or tourist user.”
