CNET First Look
Casio Exilim EX-Z1050The Casio Exilim EX-Z1050 10-megapixel camera features a 2.6-inch LCD screen and a much faster burst mode than its predecessor's. Overprocessed images keep this from being an otherwise excellent shooter.
[ Music ] >> I'm Will Greenwald assistant editor of CNET.com and this is our look at the Casio Excelon EXZ1050 digital camera. It's a ten mega pixel snapshot camera. That other than being high resolution and having a small, slim frame, doesn't really have much to it's name. It shoots pretty well and it's images look pretty good but it only has a 3X lens, doesn't have any specific manual features beyond the usual ones. You're not going to get much more control out of this than you will your average snapshot camera. Like with the previous Excelon camera, the EXS770, it does have this nice side bar for when you're changing things like white balance, ISO, even manual focus. That's a very nice feature to have on a snapshot camera. It lets you rapidly change settings. This camera's screen, this two point six inch hundred and fifteen thousand pixel screen is coarse and very soft. Now when you're shooting high resolution, ten mega pixel images like this, you need to be able to frame them as well as you can. Otherwise this is pretty much just a pretty good digital camera with a problematic screen. I'm Will Greenwald and this is our look at the Casio Excelon EXZ1050 digital camera. [ Music ]
