Casio EXILIM EX-Z60 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The underneath of the Casio Exilim EX Z60 has a small compartment containing both the Lithium Ion battery and the Secure Digital memory card. It won’t come as a surprise that the Casio Z60 camera also uses the SD card as a storage medium. The camera comes with an 8.3MB internal memory, but don’t expect too much of this. In the highest quality the Casio Exilim Z60 produces a file with a size of 3.63MB. A quick calculation shows that it is then possible to save two pictures in the internal memory. It would be nice if they would increase the internal memory or supply the camera in two versions; one with only the camera and a kit including a 512MB card. I remember that Casio came up with a kit like this in the past.

SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD memory card
It should be clear by now that if you want to save more pictures, you will need to invest in an extra Secure Digital memory card. If you want to save the equivalent of approximately 3 rolls of 36 pictures you should buy a 512MB memory card. This will allow you to take approximately 130 pictures in the highest quality or just 7 minutes of video. If you buy a flash memory card, look at the type of card that I used for the trial. The SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD memory card has a unique feature. As well as being fast and having a large storage capacity, the Secure Digital card has a USB interface. If you remove the card from the Casio Exilim Z60 digital camera and bend it in half, the USB interface will appear and the card can be plugged directly into a free USB interface. In this way you can use the card as a universal medium that is extremely interchangeable.

Casio Exilim Z60 - Picture processing
The Casio Exilim EX Z60 performs well in regard to picture processing. The high resolution pictures of 6 Megapixels are processed quickly and you don’t have to wait long for the buffer to empty. Lower resolutions are processed slightly quicker, but I wouldn’t expect users to make much use of this. You notice that the Casio Exilim Z60 benefits from the Exilim processor, an essential part of the Casio Z60.

Exilim processor - Casio NP-20 Lithium Ion battery
As well as being quick, the Exilim processor is also geared towards saving energy. The small processor saves space and this is good for the camera’s size. Because Casio knows how to staple several components on a small surface they can make an extremely efficient processor. The speed is a welcome feature, one you experience on all levels. The energy saving character is more than welcome. The number of pictures that ultra compact digital cameras can take with a fully charged battery is often disappointing. The Casio Exilim EX Z60 has decent numbers. With the help of the Exilim processor and a fully charged battery, you can count on approx 180 pictures or 90 minutes of recording time. These figures are based on CIPA measuring results by an average realistic use. If you expect to be taking more pictures and are unable to recharge the Casio NP-20 Lithium Ion battery, it might be a good idea to buy a spare battery. I expect though that the battery supplied with the camera will be more than enough for the average user.
