Where do we find a thorough review of the Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 camera?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Deborah Speer, Nov 16, 2007.

  1. Why does a supposedly thorough reviewer wholly miss the two features I am
    trying to find out about a specific camera?

    I read the entire review on DPReview
    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/CasioZ1000/

    There is no mention of the two items I'm trying to find out. I'm shocked at
    how a supposedly thorough review misses what consumers care about?

    All I'm trying to find out is WHICH mini USB connector is used by the
    camera. It doesn't say in the article (there are two standards). I never
    buy any device that isn't mini-usb so if it's the newer usb, then I will
    not buy the camera. But I can't tell from the supposedly thorough review.

    Likewise with whether or not the camera takes the 4GByte SD cards. It
    doesn't say. It implies not, but it doesn't say.

    How can a supposedly thorough review miss the two features I'm looking for?
    Is there a Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 review out there that is thorough?

    The manual is here:
    http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/qv/en/EXZ1000_EU_e.pdf

    In it, it explains that it uses a docking station. This one in fact:

    Where you can see the USB port quite clearly.

    DPReview had a new article this week about new firmware for Casio
    cameras. For the Z1000, the link is here:
    http://world.casio.com/qv/download/en/ex_z1000_firmup/
    Which says
    "Provides support for SDHC memory cards with capacities of 8 GB or
    greater", which is what you need.

    I found the information you needed in a few minutes. Perhaps you
    should be more thorough in your own searching rather than expecting
    reviews to have exactly the information your require and then bitching
    when they don't provide it on a plate.

    I look at reveiws for "how does the device functon" . In the case of
    cameras, Are the photos the expected quality and other camera
    attributes which can only be obtained by using it. I don't expect nor
    want a review to be a rehash of the user manual or the product spec
    sheets provided by the manufacturer. For features and tech specs I
    find the manufactures web usually the best.

    As for the USB.. if thats your criteria for buying a camera, then,
    well what can I say. If the camera met ever other spec and was
    superaltive in the most important ones (optics, noise, software) then I
    can hardly reject it because of a connector. Lets face it, the USB we
    know today will be obsolete in a very few years anyway.. wireless?
