Features
Casio EX-Z70BK Digital Camera
7.2-megapixel CCD: The Casio Exilim EX-Z70 digital camera delivers great pictures with 7.2-megapixel resolution—this makes even poster-size printouts possible.

Zoom: The 3x optical zoom lets you get up close before you take your shot, and the additional 4x digital zoom lets you enlarge the details before or after shooting.

2.5" LCD screen: Frame your shot, review images and access menu options through the large 2.5" LCD.

Anti-Shake DSP: This camera features Anti-Shake DSP, which reduces blurring caused by shaking hands or moving subjects. Auto Macro and Quick Shutter features ensure that photos are properly focused.

High sensitivity: The high-sensitivity shooting max of ISO 800 allows bright and natural pictures without a flash under low light.

Quick start-up: Once powered on, the Exilim engine delivers high-speed performance so you don’t miss a shot.

Rapid flash: By dividing the amount of light that the flash would normally use during a single shot, continuous flash allows you to shoot up to three photos on a single flash charge so you won't miss capturing special moments due to flash failure.

Best shot mode: Scene modes let you set your camera to the shooting conditions. Simply follow the guidance that appears on the monitor screen to select the best shot scene that resembles the type of image you want to record, and the required camera settings are configured automatically.

Memory: This digital camera comes with 8.3MB of internal memory, which holds around 5 pictures at the highest resolution. Get the most out of your camera by adding a 512MB or larger MultiMediaCard or SD memory card. How much memory do you need? Click here to find out.

Movie mode: When a snapshot isn't enough, you can record movies at 30fps directly to your memory card. A built-in microphone ensures that your movies sound as good as they look.

Battery: Take up to 200 shots on a single charge.


Well i like it but i know there is better out there.

The things i am looking for are fast it must be fast, this one can take 3 flash shots in one second, SD card, rechareable batt, anti shack, good night shots.

A Canon digi-camera. Just about any model. Enough said :)

Canon will outperform most other digital cameras out there, they just make a kick-ass camera.

Agreed.

I have a canon s100 2.1 MP and it takes better pics than my friend's Olympus 5.1 MP cam.

You can get a cannon elph SD-500 for about 260 now new. I've had this camera for almost a year and carried while I was overseas and it held up well. I'd definitely look at getting one of these.

Canon or Nikon.

Canon's are more popular, though I prefer Nikon myself, partly from using their SLR film cameras. I just bought a point-and-shoot 6.2 MP Nikon L1 for under $200, and couldn't be more pleased. Their new L6 6.0 MP camera is $199 for about the same features, too. I was looking at the Casio Exilim as well, but was instantly put off after hearing it's fatal flaw was poor image quality. Also be sure to check that the storage media (SD Card, MMC Card, etc) the camera uses will work with whatever card reader your PC has. Saves lots of the hassle of messing with hooking up the camera to the computer every time you want to transfer images or using card reader adapters. CNet's reviews are usually good, but be sure to balance the editors reviews with the user reviews, and you might want to go to a store and do some hands-on testing before buying. CNet reviews for the L1 I have say it's very slow, which may have been the case for early models, but the one I have is quite fast. Since you know what you're looking for and the price you'll pay, you'll probably just have a few models to choose from. Might be good to buy from someplace with a 30-day return policy in case you change your mind, too.
