Last year Computer Critics reviewed Casio’s Exilim EX-Z50, a small camera that packs a huge punch. Today, we take a look at a camera that makes the EX-Z50 look like a telegraph machine. The new 6-Megapixel Casio Exilim EX-S600 is almost half as thin as the EX-Z50, and has many new features packed into its sexy aluminum body.
Like many of its predecesors, the Casio Exilim EX-S600 features Casio’s “Best Shot” technology which makes it easy to let you get a perfect picture everytime. It works by letting you choose any one of 35 different preset settings such as “Portrait”, “Night Scene” and “Fireworks”. There is even a setting for taking pictures of pets which reduces red-eye and compensates for restless puppy movement. If you prefer to fiddle with the settings yourself, the Casio EX-S600 settings menu gives you access to the standard ISO, white balance, flash mode, focus, and 3-mode self-timer. You can also store your own preset settings for easy access anytime.
One of the Casio Exilim EX-S600’s best features is the Anti-Shake feature that automatically reduces the blur produced by an unsteady photographer. The Anti-Shake feature extends the shutter time but compensates for movement while the shutter is open, a great feature that ensures a perfect shot when you ask someone else to take a picture for you.
