It use the Canon lens, Sony also uses the Canon lens (they only call it Carl Zeiss.......), we really don't know whether the more bigger brands are fully 100% using their own parts anyway, so to say that Casio is doing this is not fair and unbiased......we only know once we open them up...........there is no logic to make all parts by ourselves nowadays.

    Buy the camera that suits your needs and keep it. For me 3 megs is all I need so I really have no urge to go into 5 megs and higher, others may think differently. If one prints not bigger than 4R there is no real need to go higher anyway.......unless you want to support the industry....

    i think newbie brands usually work harder n try to pack more value for the $ u pay..

    Default Master of miniaturization

    Casio is a master of miniaturization. I use a casio PDA. Was the cheapest color PDA with "crippled" WINCE operating system. This PDA was quite popular in the west and some hackers came up with modified XP, PoketPC like shell (GUI). After installing the hacked software I got almost all the functionality of PocketPC. Great value for money.

    When asked a salesman in SLS abt this model, he tried to discourage me by pointing out that it's not PocketPC, I cannot run any software bla, bla...

    Casio makes innovative and reliable products

    Default why not?

    have the exslim p600. good at ISO 50 and 100. beyond noise is evident.
    the camera looks great. all metal and the focus speed is excellent.

    think cant fault the camera for the noise as all camera with sensor size at 1/1.8 will be just as noisy.

    the high end panasonic LC1 produce more noise than the so call lower end canon 300D....simply becos the sensor is bigger. thus lesser noise.

    but for convenience and travel i think its great. add a ext flash and it becomes a really capable camera.

    Is it true that all of Casio's cameras are made by 3rd party manufacturers ?

    Well, actually Casio Z series cameras are quite good, especially the new model: Z30 and Z40. They look sexy, good battery, big LCD, and easy to use cradle (especially good for those who don't know much about computer but still want to buy a digital camera). Image comes out okay too.

    Just my thoughts though.

    And Casio cannot just stick to watch and calculator lah. Otherwise they'd be out of business long time ago. just like nowadays, Dell and Gateway make TV, HP has iPod, Sanyo makes DC, and Sony makes everything

    I hear Casio, I think G-Shock or Baby-G.
    I hear Canon, Nikon, I think cameras.
    I hear Sony, I think home appliance products.
    I hear Nokia, I think handphones.
    I hear Mercedes, I think cars.
    I hear Honda, I think motorcycles.
    I hear Boeing, I think aircraft.

    Its how the brand relates to the mainstream products. If prices are low enuff, I might juz buy it. But it seems that, for the price of an Exlim, I can get something else... Like a Sony!
