Casio Exilim Hi-Zoom EX-V7 Reviews

Digital Reviews Network has a first look review of the Casio Exilim Hi-Zoom EX-V7 and writes, “The Casio EX-V7 is a powerful digicam, structured around a unique zoom system. It’s clearly designed for people who love to have the latest in the point-and-shoot market. It’s a pity that the picture quality doesn’t quite match up with the expectations one should have from this top of the range Casio model. Having said that, most people in this market will be quite happy with the overall quality and feature-set of this camera. You know you’ll have a sturdy camera and access to a high powered zoom. And it is a great looking camera.”

PopPhoto has a review of the Casio Exilim Hi-Zoom EX-V7 and writes, “There are many things to like about the EX-V7, but like many cameras in this category, its Achilles heel is image quality. Like many manufacturers, Casio has chosen to up the mega-pixel count and consider the image degradation issues as an afterthought. Unfortunately, the EX-V7 is quite noisy. Even at low ISO speeds, I can enlarge the full resolution image to 200 percent and see what I can only describe as “Noise blobs” throughout the image. It’s pitiful, really. And at $400 a copy, this becomes a camera that’s on the expensive side of the pocket-sized market and because of that high price tag, better image quality should be a given. With all things outside of image quality considered, I’d give the Casio an easy “A.” I like the zoom ability while shooting video, the redundant anti-shake technology, the much improved zoom magnification and the innovative approach to the various scenes in the camera. But, if the image quality is thrown into that mix, the camera earns only an average “C.” And when you consider that for only $100 or so more you can get a DSLR with a lens, the Casio then starts to fade off into the forgotten.”
