Introduction

The Casio Exilim EX-Z750 is one of the latest offerings from a company with a long history of innovation in the digital camera field. They promise the “Unexpected Extra” in their products, and the Casio EX-Z750 lives up to that billing, with 31 special shooting modes (including modes to capture and straightening images of white boards, business cards or other documents — perfect for business or school note-taking). Compact, well-constructed, and stylish, the Casio Exilim EX-Z750 is a great “bring along” camera for casual outings, business, or vacation trips. Read on below for all the details on the Casio 750!

Camera Overview

Rivaling some of the smallest digital cameras currently on the market, Casio’s newest addition to its Exilim line of digital cameras is the EX-Z750. It is sleek, stylish, and very tiny, but don’t let its small size fool you. The Casio EX 750 has a lot to offer. Measuring 3.5 x 2.3 x 0.9 inches (89 x 59 x 22 millimeters) and weighing just 5.6 ounces (159 grams) with the battery and SD memory card, the aluminum bodied EX-Z750 is a perfect match for small shirt pockets and purses. Clearly meant to tag along to just about any destination, the EX-Z750 is well-suited for travel, as it’s about as thick as a deck of playing cards. The built-in lens cover automatically opens whenever the camera is powered on, and the lens telescopes outward in well under two seconds, making it quick on the draw. You can quite literally slip it in a pocket and hit the road. With its 7.2-megapixel CCD, you can capture high resolution images, good for printing as large as 11×17 inches, or 8×10 inches with some cropping. (A lower resolution setting is perfect for email attachments.)

The Casio Exilim EX-Z750 features a 3x, 7.9-23.7mm lens, equivalent to a 38-114mm lens on a 35mm camera. Maximum aperture ranges from f/2.8 to f/5.1, depending on the zoom position, and remains under automatic control. Focus covers a range from 1.3 feet (40 centimeters) to infinity in normal shooting mode, with a Macro range from 3.9 to 19.7 inches (10 to 50 centimeters). The EX-Z750 offers both manual and automatic focus control, and features Infinity and Pan Focus settings as well. A Quick Shutter mode records without waiting for Auto Focus to set focus, replacing Pan Focus for still photography. Pan Focus is a silent alternative to Autofocus available only in one of the camera’s Movie modes. In Manual focus mode, the central portion of the image is enlarged as an aid to focusing. An AF Area option under the Record menu sets the AF point to Spot, Multi or Free, with the Multi setting automatically choosing the focus point from one of nine AF points arrayed in the center of the frame. The Free option initially sets the focus point in the center of the screen but you can move it with the arrow keys before setting the Set button to choose the focus point. A maximum of 8x digital zoom is available in addition to the optical zoom, effectively increasing the zoom capabilities to 24x. Keep in mind, however, that digital zoom always decreases the overall image quality because it simply enlarges the center pixels of the CCD image.
