Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700

The Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700 is an extremely well-made, intuitive and feature-rich 7 megapixel digital camera that should be on your wish-list if you are looking for a mid-sized model that doesn't sacrifice functionality for size. Image quality was very good with the ISO range and night shots being stand-out features. Casio may not be the first name that you associate with digital cameras, but they have definitely produced a very capable camera in the Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700. There are a few downsides to note, as with any camera. The LCD screen is slightly grainy, the tripod mount is very poorly positioned, and it takes 40 seconds to format a memory card. There are also a couple of missing nice-to-have features, including a RAW file format option and a vari-angle LCD screen, that are found on some other competitor's models. A camera is often more than the sum of its parts, however, and thankfully Casio have paid as much attention to making the EX-P700 feel just right as they have to making sure that it has all the right features present and correct. The Casio Exilim Pro EX-P700 is one of a handful of cameras that I was sorry to send back to the supplier - I think my ageing Canon Powershot G2 is due to be upgraded!
