Casio Exilim EX-S3  -  Digital Cameras: Reveiws

Why It’s CoolThe overall package is tiny, but the EX-S3’s generous two-inch LCD screen makes framing and viewing shots a cinch. » At truly pocket-size dimensions and weighing just a hair under four ounces, the 3.2-megapixel Casio is worth taking everywhere; I found myself constantly popping off candids, like the one of a friend blowing a tough bouldering problem. » Hit the power button and take a shot a mere second later. » A fun feature: See your month in pictures, with a menu that shows thumbnails on a calendar grid, displaying each snap on the date it was taken.

Hmmm . . .With a relatively dark f/4.2 lens, this miniature machine has to work its flash hard—draining juice—and the battery can be recharged only in a special cradle. You’ll want to invest in a spare battery ($30).

*Expect to pay less than MSRP at your local shop.
