I bought the Casio EX-Z750 last night. I'm already having 'lens error'
problems, which I had read about but figured it was unlikely to happen.
Wrong. Also, whenever the lens opens, it makes a click sound that I don't
remember it doing the first few times I used it. I don't want reliability to
be a major issue so despite pretty good movie mode and other attractive
features, it's going back.
I've had the Sony P-100 for about a year, and I'm giving that to my wife.
I've liked its quality, protability and reliability, and the P-200 appears
to be a substantial improvement.
Heard great stuff about image quality on the Canon but haven't tried it.
I'm going to have a look at the Kodak v550. It's very compact, has a nice
LCD, is supposed to have a high quality lens, it allows optical zoom during
video mode, and there are no reliability issues I've heard of. I understand
battery life is mediocre, though.
