4x Digital Zoom
The Casio EX-Z1000 zooms over the equivalent of a 38-114mm range, typical for its class. Overall performance is quite good, with good detail and sharpness at wide angle. The 4x Precision Digital zoom takes it out to 12x total, with the typical loss of resolution associated with Digital Zoom, although the Casio EX-Z1000 is smart about resizing the crop.
|Standard Macro||Macro with Flash|
The Casio EX-Z1000's macro setting captures a very tiny minimum area of only 2.06 x 1.54 inches (52 x 39 millimeters). Use off-camera lighting for any macro shots with the Z1000.
Wide Angle. The Casio EX-Z1000's 0.74% barrel distortion at wide angle is lower than average and not obvious in most images.
Telephoto. At the telephoto end, the Z1000's 0.07% barrel distortion is very low.
The images above were taken from our standardized test shots. For a collection of more pictorial photos, see our Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z1000 Photo Gallery .
