Casio Exilim EX-V8 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 7.50 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "Following the V7, which Casio called the "world’s slimmest digital camera with a 7x optical zoom" is the sophomore edition of its highest optical zoom camera, the Exilim EX-V8. Introduced in August 2007, the Exilim V8 carries the same 7x optical zoom lens but comes with a higher 8.1-megapixel count. Along with the increased resolution comes the addition of a YouTube Capture mode, making this camera not only a digital still camera but a heavily-marketed point-and-shoot video recorder for easy sharing. ...

... The Casio V8 gets props for matching a 7x zoom lens on portable body, but the camera produces weak focus during zoom. While having an extra assist light for movies is nice, the assist lamp is overpowering during stills. General image parameters prove weak, with average color and resolution, and too much noise. ..."

Review (Summary): "... It packs an 8.1 Megapixel CCD, 7X optical zoom lens, image stabilization, and 2.5" LCD display into a slim metal body. Other features include a widescreen H.264 movie mode with stereo sound recording, face detection and subject tracking AF, a unique continuous flash shooting mode, and more scene modes than you could possibly need. ...

... Photo quality on the EX-V8 is quite good, especially considering its big zoom / small body combination. While exposure was generally spot on, I did notice that the camera blew out the highlights on several occasions. Colors were vivid, sharpness was pleasing, and noise levels were low. Noise reduction artifacting is visible on fine details, even at ISO 50, and it gets worse quickly once you hit ISO 200. ..."
