While just about all of its competitors have been making waves recently their with own ultraslim models, Casio continues to churn out new sliver-sized cameras with capable feature-sets in its EXILIM "Card" line.
One of the latest is the six-megapixel Casio EXILIM EX-S600. If you haven't seen a Casio slim camera in awhile, it's easy to forget how nicely crafted and solidly built these models are. The Casio EX-S600 comes in three colors -- silver, orange and blue -- and measures just 0.8 inch at its thinnest point.
Along with the sleek design, the Casio S600 has a very impressive set of features for a camera this thin including a 3x optical zoom lens, 9-point Multi Autofocus with Contrast Detection, a new MPEG-4 movie mode with built-in camera shake reduction, a bright 2.2-inch LCD, incredible battery life of up to 300 pictures per change, and 34 "Best Shot" scene modes.
Though slim cameras have been immensely popular with consumers in recent years, the biggest gripe has been picture quality. Check out this review and see if the Casio EX-S600's images match its stylish, sleek design.
