On paper, the Casio EX-100 seems the greatest imaging device in the history of our species. It can do things that sound mind blowing for a camera this small and almost too good to be true for a consumer imaging device of any kind. This camera has a list of features so long that, even in the 3 weeks I had to play with it, I couldn’t truly explore every single one of them.
