The smallest, lightest, and thinnest compact in our lineup, the Casio Exilim EX- Z3 ($399.99 list) is the camera you'll take with you everywhere. The 3.2-megapixel EX-Z3 is equipped with a few impressive big-camera features, but because of its...

Casio revealed their ultra-compact EXILIM EX-Z3 at CES 2003 in January. The EX-Z3 is the first Casio digital camera to carry the EXILIM name and have an optical zoom lens. The ultra-slim profile is partially thanks to the use of the same sliding lens...

The EXILIM EX-Z3 is a very capable ultra-compact digital camera. It's small dimensions and relatively light weight mean that it can live up to the EXILIM 'wearable' tag line. It's a camera design to immediately appeal, and the big two inch LCD monitor...

Digital Cameras - Casio Exilim EX-Z3 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

The obvious competition for the Exilim Z3 is the Pentax Optio S, which I reviewed previously. I felt that the two cameras are likely to appeal to slightly different markets. The Z3 is more oriented to pure point & shoot novice users, with more scene...

Consumer electronics giant Casio has been one of the true innovators in the world of digital photography, although their role is seldom recognized as such by industry commentators and pundits. Their original QV-10 camera was the first to include an LCD...

TheCasioExilim EX-Z3 ($399) is an ultra-small camera with a 3Xzoom lens. The Z3 is quite similar to Pentax's OptioS model (they share the same lens), with the main differencebeing the Z3's larger LCD and thicker body. Both cameras arehigh performance 3...

Ultra-thin, all-metal body with 3X zoom lens!, Robust performance (except for AF), Large (though low resolution) LCD, Manual white balance, Handy dock for photo transfer / battery charging, Lots of useful "best shot" (scene) modes, Cool calendar,...
