Casio Z120 & Z750

I'm confused about the Casio Z120. It seems to have all the features of the Z750 but cost less. Am I missing something?

Casio Z120 and Z750

I never thought about comparing the two, but you certainly have a point:

They both seem to have the same lens and sensor assembly.

There are a few minor differences, but not $100 worth of differences.

Less expensive battery (for Casio) and a smaller LCD, makes this sound like a cost reduction model of the Z750. Many camera companies do this type of thing to meet a different price market.

The Z120 is too new to have any reviews yet.
I would expect it to rate just about the same as the Z750.
I will be looking for a review of the Z120.

This may be a real sleeper.

The main difference between the two are the Z-120 uses Ni-Mh AA batteries and has "Anti-Shake". The Z-750 uses a Lithium Ion battery and has no Anti-Shake. Your paying for the Anti-Shake feature for use in low light conditions. I beleive it is in the lens and on the CCD.

previous message says the z120 has antishake and different batteries, but it's cheaper though, right?

(NT) You are right.

The Z120 is cheaper. I've read that the anti-shake feature is no more than kicking up the shutter speed and has a big impact on the quality of the picture.

I've done some extensive research on the Z750 and the Z120 as I'm considering to buy either of. Unfortunately there are only limited reviews of the Z120 but glowing reviews on the Z750... Physically here are the differences i see:

- 2'' LCD screen resolution 84,960
- Mostly Plastic body with plastic buttons
- Uses AA batteries (spec says 170 shots on alkaline)
- Additional Anti-Shake option in snapshot mode (don't mistake this as lens Anti-Shake, like previous post - it increases the ISO and lower the shutter which also can be done manually)

- 2.5'' LCD screen resolution 115200
- Full metal body with metal buttons
- Uses proprietary Li-ON battery (spec says 350 shots)
- No Anti-Shake option on main menu but has Best shot scene
- Has a nice cradle which is love or hate - you can't charge the batteries without the cradle, meaning you got to lug it along when u travel

(i think casio does sell a separate batt charger for the Z750 but it and a spare battery costs a bundle)

Oh yeah - also the DP review and the user manual for Z120 has a mistake where the max shutter is listed as 1/8sec, but this is for auto setting. The manual aparture is still 60 seconds like the Z750

That's all i can give from my research online. would be great if anyone can find actual pictures to compare the pic quality between z120 and z750

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
