My casio exilm lasted about a month and broke. I'm still trying to get it replaced. It works for about 5 seconds and then I get a camera stabilization error and it turns off... apparently they are REALLY touchy and a slight jolt ( never dropped it lived in my pocket that's not a scratch on it )can break the camera. Casio doesn't want to fix it under warranty, so i filed it under my credit card protection.... First and last casio I'll ever buy.pseudonomen137 said:Yeah, I have a half-decent (IE, no where near as decent as biffters) Canon XTi with a nice macro lens, but that's a total pain to carry around (especially when you add in the tripod). I hate the pictures it takes, but I ended up caving and buying one of those ultra-thin Casio exilim cameras so I can just stick it in my pocket and forget about it. A lot more convenient!
