Casio unveiled their next ultra-slim digital camera in early 2007, called the Exilim EX-V7. We take a close look at it in this article; it already has one claim to fame. This camera just happens to be, as of the date of this writing, the slimmest 7x optical zoom digital camera in the world.
That is quite a feat for Casio, although they are known for making slim cameras in the Exilim line. I like some of the features of this camera, but in some respects it falls a bit short.
The size, speed, and zoom ability of this camera is excellent compared to its closest competitors. Where it may have fallen a bit short is in the image quality department. Although the image quality is not horrible, I would expect a bit more from a 7.2 megapixel camera with a $300 price tag.
The EX-V7 is definitely a camera that would be a perfect fit for some, while others may not like this camera at all. I think this camera is for the person that needs a slim pocket camera with great zoom power and above average performance. Someone looking for a camera with exceptional image quality may not find this Casio a good fit for them. These people may want to look at alternatives like the Canon SD850 IS and the Sony DSC-T10, both of which have superior image quality, especially the Canon model.
