Casio Exilim C721 Review

0. phoneArena posted on 19 Jun 2009, 08:39

The Casio Exilim C721 combines a 5MP autofocus camera with 3x optical zoom and the same Military ruggedness that is found on the Boulder. Despite these specs, the Exilim is up against tough competition from the 5MP Samsung Omnia and 3.2MP LG enV Touch...

I don't get why the devcie only allows for 500 contacts yet 999 speed dials... not everyone sets a speed dial for 2 numbers per contact..... i would hope that future software updates allow more.

I am on my third sample of this phone and about to return it. I bought it because I thought the camera would be very good but I am extremely disappointed with it. 1. The 1st sample had defective audio on the phone receiver - very weak and distorted. Also the included software for downloading images from internal memory wouldn't install on a garden variety XP machine and Casio support was unhelpful. Finally, the auto flash didn't work correctly - the flash LED's stay lit between shots in medium to low light rather than flashing at the instant a photo is taken unless the flash is turned off entirely, as described in the review but not like any other auto flash I've used and saps battery very quickly. 2. 2nd sample had acceptable audio but a defective usb connection (actually an internal usb modem). Same flash problem. 3. 3rd sample had same flash problem, but audio and usb worked acceptably. 4. Picture quality on all 3 units not as good overall as my 1.3 MP LG phone, although it does have more resolution and somewhat better quality in bright light. There is no way to access photos in the internal memory except by use of the included Digital Photo Album software which didn't work since I couldn't install it. In any case, it is apparently not possible to access it by directly by Windows Explorer, Photoshop, or any other common photo software as is possible with most digital cameras. I didn't try its optional SD card which might be accessible without use of the DPA software. Just not ready for prime time in my estimation.
