    Comments about Exilim EX-Z550 Digital Camera (Black):

    I take pictures every where that i go and the quality is just great. you can adjust your picture to different environments. what i like it the youtube capture mode. if there is a video that you want to catch, then you can press the record and you will have it no video! all ride! i like this product. it gets the job done. the thing i don't like about it is it has cheesy music.

      Comments about Exilim EX-Z550 Digital Camera (Black):

      I got my first CASIO as a gift and frankly speaking I was surprised by the quality of images and every one in my family and friends noticed this thing especially for the portrait pictures, then one day the camera accidentally fell of a one feet height and broke so BE CAREFUL IN HANDLING THIS CAMERA! because once you drop it there's a good chance that you might lose it.
      But overall it's a Great camera in terms of pictures quality, the simplicity in it's use & the price.
      I'm happy with it and I highly recommend it

          Got it, took 17 photos and realized about a third of them showed 5 lines at the top and center of the photos. The lines were wider at the top (about a fifth of the width of the photo), evenly spaced and narrower as they went lower (about 10% of the height). [...]

                    Comments about Exilim EX-Z550 Digital Camera (Red):

                    I had an 8.1 megapixel Z80 for about two years and I loved it! I mostly took pictures of my young son, outings with friends, vacations, etc. After I lost my EX Z80, I looked into buy another Casio. This camera is okay and I have been trying to tinker with it for a couple of weeks but I am still not completely satisfied with the picture quality.

                    The pictures are fuzzy and blurry. There are times when the entire picture is blurry but mostly there is just a lack of definition towards the edges on objects. When using the premium auto setting there is an annoying delay (3-5 sec) which is an eternity when trying to capture images of young children.

                    The camera is more purple than red but that shows in the preview on this site. The camera is also a lot thicker than my previous model.

                        I bought this because I wanted a P&S that did HD video and didn't cost alot. Well, it takes good stills, compact, alot of good features like "best shot" A quick and easy preset selection for all different types of picture taking. Unfortunately, the HD looks like [*]. Even at the highest resolution, regular video on my c&non powershot looks better. Too bad, I'll keep it for my wife so she can take videos and pics. but I can't do any editing with it or post it on Youtubewithout serious quality loss. So much for the upload feature. If want a good still shot camera at a cheap price this is a good deal. If HD video is important to you- steer clear.
