Comments about Exilim EX-S5 Digital Camera (Purple):

I bought this camera for a trip to Spain with the goal of taking scenic daytime and nighttime pictures.

The Best Shot feature on this camera is amazing, as it can adapt to any lighting level, movement, and scenery. For instance there is a setting for 'party' 'candlelight' and 'water movement'. Amazing!

To get the best shots, I would recommend playing with the camera before taking your final picture, and also keeping it on a higher resolution. My pictures turned out smashing!

        Very simple to use. Clean interface (which was a surprise based on prior experience with Casio cameas). Nice image quality and pretty accurate color rendition for our purposes.

        Its slim. Its light. Great big display screen is nice. With the limited button it seems like this camera not be very technical, but it actually has quite a number of capabilities once you sit down and learn your owners manuel.

        More importantly, I got a GREAT price on it.

            This camera is perfect for my 13-year-old daughter, and came in the blue color she wanted. It was a Christmas gift, and she's already used it a lot since getting it (6 days ago). It was easy for her to set up, and easy for her to use.

              For the money, you cant beat this camera in the marketplace. We have 2 of these now and they never fail and the best is that they have a rechargable battery which will save you $100 per year in the cost of double A's. This is one great camera which takes excellent pictures.

                    I picked up this camera as a Christmas gift that I wound up giving myself, at the price for a nice 10 MP camera you can not beat it. I use the camera only for everyday picture taking and it works great. It is smaller and thinner than most digital cameras I have used in the past. 1 thing though, you have to get the micro SD card as the internal memory is very samll.

                          Good value, [...] Camera goes to macro (close up) automatically which is nice. Will never use a 10 meg picture but these days bigger is better, 2-4 meg is overkill for most pictures. Would have preferred a view finder, hopefully the rear screen will work in sunlight as I haven't tried it outdoors yet. Very thin. Will playback video through a TV very simply. So far so good.

                          We bought this camera for our 9 year-old daughter who loves photography. She is taking some really nice photos with it. Overall, nice camera, but wish the zoom was a little better.
