The Casio Exilim EX-V7 places a 7x (38-266mm) optical zoom lens and a 7.2 megapixel sensor in an ultra-compact, metal body. While the camera lacks true manual exposure control, over 30 still image and 10 movie "scene modes" deliver a fair amount of control over the image ultimately captured. The EX-V7 compensates for lack of optical image stabilization by offering mechanical stabilization that shifts the image sensor when motion is detected. Many reviews mention the weak flash, but praise the overall image quality.
