Casio Exilim EX-P600 Digital Camera Review

If you're a photography enthusiast looking for a pocketable digital camera the Casio Exilim EX-P600 could be just the ticket. This is the first Casio to carry the Pro designation, the 6-megapixel, 4X-zooming Casio Exilim Pro EX-P600 faces stiff competition from an increasingly crowded field of prosumer models. Luckily, the P600 combines a mile-long list of features with an excellent user manual and built-in guidance system, making it an appealing option for enthusiasts and enthusiastic newcomers alike. The camera lacks a raw-capture mode, and its distracting live histogram takes some getting used to; in addition, the P600's 320x240 movie mode can't match the 640x480 resolutions offered on newer cameras. But the P600 offers solid image quality and very good battery life, which, combined with its versatility and accessibility, help to distinguish this model from its higher-resolution competitors.
