Casio Exilim EX-Z57 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 7.57 (out of 10)
The Exilim EX-Z57 is yet another Casio addition to the increasingly skinny point-and-shoot market, aimed at consumers searching for both style and convenience. This 5-megapixel digital camera definitely tops the charts for portability and style. Its thin, flat profile makes it easy to pitch in a shirt or pants pocket. The camera is incredibly light, but the aluminum frame gives the body some substance and credibility. This Exilim is comfortable to handle and easier to use than many previous Casio models, although some of that can be attributed to the automatic nature of the camera. The Z57 stocks a 3x optical zoom lens with a 5.25-megapixel 1/2.5-inch CCD behind it. The Exilim EX-Z57 has the same interior configuration as last year’s Casio Z55, except the newer model has an enormous 2.7-inch LCD screen and no optical viewfinder. The Casio EX-Z57 will be available worldwide for $399.99 in late March or early April.

The Casio Exilim EX-Z57 joins the crowded field of 5 megapixel sub-compact point-and-shoot cameras. With an oversized 2.7-inch LCD and sturdy metal construction, the EX-Z57 will appeal to a variety of users in search of a small camera for snapshots. Unfortunately, our testing shows that the camera's image quality is generally poor, with marginal color accuracy, and substandard control of noise. Available online for around $300, the camera is priced competitively.

At some point, you have to figure that the dominant digital photography trends of smaller cameras, bigger LCD screens, and more megapixels will reach a critical point, and we'll be left with some sort of tiny 12-megapixel monocle. Until that day arrives, we'll have to settle for models such as Casio's 5-megapixel Exilim EX-Z57 digital camera, a highly portable snapshot camera with a 2.7-inch LCD that's as bright as it is large. Though the Z57's lack of manual features and poor outdoor imaging can be frustrating at times, the camera delivers pleasing indoor results and acceptable shot-to-shot performance.
