Casio EX-V8 Review at Steves Digicams
Steves Digicams have reviewed the Casio EX-V8, which offers a a 7x optical zoom and 8.1 megapixels plus a YouTube video mode.
“The 7x internal optical zoom lens provides an amount of versatility that you will not find in most ultra- compacts. With a 35mm film equivalent of 38mm-266mm, you have an excellent wide angle for shooting landscapes and large group portraits, and there is more than enough zoom to single out a subject in the distance or single out a person from a large group. There is slight barrel distortion at the wide angle end, and because of the anti-blur technologies, some of the images when using the telephoto end of the zoom are a little softer when handheld, so a tripod or monopod could be useful with this camera. There is also some evident pincushioning.”
