Casio EX-H15 Lens features

The EX-H15 comes with a fixed lens having a focal range of 24-240mm making it a 10.0 x zoom which is not at all outstanding but it is going to be handy in some situations.

At it's widest 24mm, the lens provides an aperture of f3.2 and that is somewhat sluggish and not good in low light occasions and you will find it hard to capture good bokeh. You might also have to boost your ISO setting which results in noisy photographs. At the long end, 240mm comes to f5.7 which is quite slow and you may have to go with slow shutter speeds.

Casio EX-H15 Connectivity

The EX-H15 has the following connectivity:

  • USB Yes
  • Wireless Yes

Cameras which have NFC and / or Bluetooth compatibility are able to be used wirelessly by smartphones. You can send photos and oftentimes alter camera settings with no need to connect straight with the camera.

Some apps also allow a Liveview and press the shutter whenever you aren't near the camera. If the camera includes a HDMI out, it can easily be connected to an external screen. Many cameras enable you to recharge the battery using the USB socket.

Casio EX-H15 Video features

The highest video resolution in the Casio EX-H15 is 640 x 480 and it can record in Motion JPEG format. 480p is terrible by today's requirements. You really should try to get a minimum 1080p resolution for video recording. The body doesn't include a mic and / or headphone socket which means that you have got absolutely no control over your audio. It is perhaps a better idea to find another model if you need better audio in your video clips.
