I use this camera every day. I am a helicopter pilot and needed something small and durable, yet a camera that could take amazing pictures and not cost an arm and a leg. I love the size and the auto feature. I especially love the Best Shot feature button on top. With one click, I can hit that button and the auto feature quickly uses the best mode to take the shot. When I say quick, I mean quick with the new Casio engine. The night shots are incredible by the way, and the battery life is amazing. The camera does not have some of the needless features such as touch screen or having the picture on the screen turn as you turn the camera. The only down-side to the camera is the fact of the size, it being so small. When taking pictures, you need to be aware of where your left fingers are when holding the camera with your left hand, as you could possibly cover the AF on top, or the microphone on bottom.

        I am an amateur photographer who carries a point and shoot everywhere, especially when my DSLR is too big to bring along. I bought this camera to replace an older one.
        When this little camera works, it takes outstanding pictures. However--up to 25% of the time, it won't focus. I've uploaded the new version (1.01), I haven't dropped it, the battery is fully charged, I've tried turning it off and on--nothing works. I Googled the problem and discovered I'm not alone with this problem.

          How many of us,that use a DSLR to work,look for a portable camera to go all aroun.I choose this one to be my company,based on reviews, that make me change my option, from my DSLR mark to Casio EXZ2000, and there was a good choice.The abillity to manage all lights situations,and allways deliver consistent output,make this slim Casio difficult to beat.It has yet size and weight adequate to carry on a shirt pocket, but not ridiculous small, nor too heavy also,and is beautifull a lot.

            Comments about EXILIM EX-Z2000 Digital Camera (Red):

            I was a serious photo hobbyist for many years, but ultimately drifted away from the hobby. Of course like everyone else, i purchased a digital camera when they first came out, and I thought they were amazing. I have not purchased a new one in years. I spent hours reading reviews and doing research on the web, and ultimately decided on the EX-Z2000. To me, the camera is like magic. It is endlessly powerful. Although use is totally intuitive, there is a 195 page user manual that gets into endless finer points of use.I have been using it for afocal astro photography and I have gotten some amazing shots of the moon and Jupiter and its moons in the first couple of days of use. It is difficult to believe that one can own a 14 megapixel camera for around [$]! I have also used the video mode, which I think works as well as my expensive Sony video camera. I highly recommend this camera! I also love the very large, bright LCD screen.

            I love the flexibility of the many different features which are so easy to find & select. It's very light and readily fits into my shirt pocket - great to take on our vacations instead of the awkward & heavy SLR camera. My wife finds the "AUTO" & "Premium AUTO" so easy to use and both take quality photos.

                    I love this camera. I upgraded from a Kodak 7.1 mp. I love all the options. I believe there are like 42 different scenery settings. Plus the best shot setting which chooses it for you. It has face recognition, smile recognition. The clarity if amazing after using the Kodak for so long. After having purchased this camera 2 of my friends went out and bought the same camera. A++ in my book!I can't comment on the video, I have yet to try it.

                      I wanted an easy to use point and click digital camera with a fast response time and large LCD display. This camera has all I wanted and much, much more! Fast response in taking pictures was important to me, and this camera is quick. The additional features it offers are almost mind boggling. I would definitely recommend it highly!

                      Dollar for dollar this camera delivers. We bought this camera to take pics of the grandkids. This means kids in motion. That means moving camera while taking pics. Image stabilization is most helpful. Setting the CS (continuous shutter) to take multiple pics is an asset when shooting kids.
                      Take the time to play with all the settings including the focus settings.
                      Absolutely a great camera for the price with plenty of bells and whistles. Oh yes, great battery life compared to many others. Enjoy!

                          Bought this for our 16 yr old son for Christmas after much research. So far it's been relatively easy to use. It's our first Casio and we are pleased with it. The price was very reasonable and as I said in my headline, so far, so good!

                          The quality of each photo is amazing for the price paid! I love how easy it is to change settings between each picture! Only down side is that when you are in the highest quality setting it takes a little bit of time to 'process' the shoot!

                                I had a Panasonic Lumix and most of the photos were not clear. This camera consistently received good reviews so I took a chance. I made the right decision. You will love this camera. Very easy to use.

                                This camera is used for casual photos and is as simple and easy to use as it gets especially with Premium Auto. But you can also use any of the Best Shot modes or Automatic Best Shot for great pictures. The camera is light and the 3 inch LCD screen on the back is very sharp and wonderful for reviewing the photos that you take. There are also plenty of adjustments you can make to improve your pictures if you feel the need. The 5:1 optical zoom is long enough without worrying about keeping the camera steady, but then it also has anti-shake abilities. This is the third Casio Exilim camera in our family. We also have an S-12 and an H-10 and keep coming back to Casio for the quality construction, features, and great pictures. The only gripe with this camera? It is too easy to press the Movie button when you are holding the camera for pictures.

                                  I did a little hands on studies before trying to choose between Casio Z2000 and SONY W350 (comparable in both price and specs). Physically Z2000 is a little bigger and heavier. However, it gives more solid feel while holding in one hand. Besides the metal finish looks better than W350.

                                  I like Z2000 operating buttons layout a lot, particularly zoom in/out. Easily to operate with one hand only, . W350's buttons are too small and too close to each other.

                                  In term of special feature, W350's Panorama shot is very useful. Z2000 has many useful bestshot modes, but may take a couple seconds or so before the next shot.

                                  Overall, I like Z2000 a lot for its look and operation. It's also a great camera for picture quality under normal lighting condition.
