Did I miss it in the review? Can the zoom be changed during video recording?





Thanks for all your (usually) excellent reviews.

Passive aggressive much ;-)





Wasn't too impressed with the high ISO performance, but the detail looks good.

Great review. Casio seem to be the only company that puts some massive capacity batteries on there cameras which is good! The let down for me is no mic while zooming in on video mode. RRR

Well, I bought one about ten days ago, and it certainly is a very nice camera. Sits well in the hand, tough body, good lens, excellent picture quality, long battery life. Niggles? Writing RAW files takes an age, start-up time is quite slow, and its USB lead has a proprietary connector (why do manufacturers do this?). So far, I am very impressed.

Camera really is excellent, all the three areas of exposure are easily found with one paw, namely ISO/aperture and shutter speed. A very clever camera with lots of other things hidden too, such as the ability to reduce flash strength, good for flash portraits etc.


I'm also impressed with battery life though as Rob1n quite rightly says, why the heck do firms go for proprietary leads. . .





I did a lot of research into this camera and I must admit, I think I made the right choice. Haven't played around with the vid yet, will write a review for it when that happens.
