Casio Exilim EX-V8

 

The Casio Exilim EX-V8 is an 8 megapixel digital camera with a 7x optical zoom lens. It is different from many digital cameras with a longer than standard lens as it retains a compact body. The camera also has manual exposure controls. It is also easy...

Design (a lot packed into a small body) - ease of use

Macro shot - lack of sharpness when zoom at maximum - very strong colours

"Picture quality is good in most instances although there were one or two blips during my testing. With its small size, ease of use and longer zoom this is likely to be a popular camera."

Casio EXILIM Hi-Zoom EX-V8 Digital Camera - Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

In January 2007, Casio launched the EXILIM Hi-Zoom EX-V7, said to be the world's slimmest 7x zoom digital camera. Just 25mm thick, the EX-V7 crammed in a seven megapixel CCD image sensor mounted on a moving platter so as to provide for CCD-shift type...

Long zoom in a small package ; CCD-shift image stabilization ; Face Recognition technology ; Good optical quality overall ; Good macro detail ; Good corner sharpness at wide angle ; Faithful color reproduction ; Good low light performance ; ISO 50...

Wide angle isn't wide enough ; Non-standard icons can be confusing ; Lack of a grip makes camera harder to hold ; Heavy barrel and pincushion distortion ; Noise suppression blurs detail even at the lowest ISO setting ; Highlights tend to blow out in...

The other main change Casio made between its V7 and V8 models was to reposition the flash strobe, now located behind a small, clear window in the sliding lens barrier. This allows a bit more distance between the flash and the lens, designed to reduce...

Review: Casio EXILIM EX-V8

 

With so many digital cameras on the market, the manufacturers have been wracking their brains trying to figure out ways to get their cameras noticed. Casio just might have found a way with the EXILIM EX-V8. It's the only camera that is partnered with...

Nice and small (under 6 oz), the battery gave me over 200 shots on one charge. It has intuitive functions, except for the zoom lever, which takes a bit of getting used to. The 7X internal optical zoom is an elegant touch for such a small camera. For an...

For a long time, if you wanted a "big zoom" camera,you had to buy a bulky ultra zoom model. Things have started to change though,with ultra-compact, high zoom cameras from Canon, Casio, Pentax, and Sharpnow available.

Very good photo quality (though see issues below), 7X zoom in a compact body -- wow, CCD-shift image stabilization (though see issue below), Good build quality for the price; memory card slot on the side, High res 2.5" LCD display, Snappy performance,...

A little too much noise reduction applied, especially at ISO 200 and above; occasional blown highlights, ISO locked at Auto in shutter priority mode; only three aperture choices available at any time in A/M modes, Weak flash, Mechanical image...

Casio Exilim EX-V8 Review

 

The Casio Exilim EX-V8 is Casio's second ultra-compact, ultra-zoom digital camera.  Its predecessor, the V7, was introduced in January 2007, and Casio decided to follow it up pretty quickly, with the V8 being announced at the end of August 2007.  The...

Casio Exilim EX-V8 Digital Camera Review

 

Filling the gap between standard 3x optical zoom point-and-shoots and 18x compacts is the 7x Casio Exilim EX-V8, the longest zoom in Casio's current product line. As the sophomore version to the V7, the 8.1-megapixel V8 carries a heavily-marketed...

The 7x optical zoom category is still reasonably small, with just a handful of offerings. The V8, however, has a higher price tag than most of its competitors, along with inferior performance. The camera's video capabilities and YouTube branding help...

Geared toward the advanced point-and-shooter, the Casio V8 garners attention for both the right and wrong reasons. Even though it has recognizable YouTube branding and advanced video functions, the camera falls short in still image quality. The Exilim...
