Opinion on the Casio Exilim EX-Z750

Written by Rick Blythe

Continued from page 1

Where I seerepparttar camera falling down is in two areas. The flash is definitely under-powered. Luckily I rarely use flash, I prefer natural light with correct white-balance. Secondly,repparttar 141488 CCD and metering combination often produce blown-out highlights. The live histogram helps here; you can dial in some EV compensation if you wish, but too many of my shots are having this problem. I can live with it in an ulta-compact though.

All-in-all, I love my little Casio EX-Z750. It's fast, feature packed, and has a very high toy factor to it!
