Review: Casio G'zOne Commando
The Commando's 5 megapixel shooter does an exceptional job. Focus and clarity were outstanding, even in low-light conditions. Images were razor sharp, and offered plenty of detail. The exposure was right 90% of the time, too, failing in only the most difficult shooting environments. In the darkest settings, the Commando's flash, nee, beacon of the Gods, casts an astonishing amount of light onto subjects. The results end up producing images with over-exposed faces and under-exposed backgrounds, but hey, at least you got to blind your friends for free.
I noticed very little grain throughout the images.

The Commando can shoot 720p HD video. In the sample videos I shot, color, white balance, and exposure were all nearly perfect. The only real complaint I'd voice is that the video could be wavy at times when the Commando is panned to and fro. If you keep the Commando still during recording, it is capable of grabbing some pretty good video.
