Care to further explain rather than believe the random ramblings of a disgruntled employee?
You know you try and help, and you get answered by a plank...

Disgruntle consumer would make more sense. A person that sells and sees consistent returns should be all you need but go ahead, don't listen, get one, and then get a new one when it breaks no long after.
Gosh, I don't get why people ask questions and then don't care and defend for a choice they apparently already decided on.
I have amongst my freelance photography work, spent a lot of the last three years working on and off selling cameras for a living. From cheap ass compacts through to very high end pro sales, and during this time developed an enviable reputation for impartial and honest advice. Advice to the extent that customers can and have flown across Europe for.
So I tell you this, Mr Smug assed OP. Casio haven't made a decent camera in their entire commercial existence. They've made some high-specced, high performing, and exceptionally good value, cute looking cameras, but they're all numbers, no substance. I've seen many, many underperforming Casios. Ones that drop off from optimal performance quickly as though they've caught the plague. I've seen more faulty Casios of almost every model number you care to mention.
They're not worth the box they're packed in.
In the current climate, and current ranges, you ought to be buying a Canon or a Panasonic. Panasonic for specs and ease of use, Canon for slightly less ease of use but better low light IQ.
But you know, feel free to ignore the free, valued advice I offer. It's impartial, honest and accurate. Go out and buy your Casio, and when it cocks up or you realise your mate who bought a Lumix made a better choice, either come back and apologise or go cry into you milk.
I very rarely act like a cocky ****, but in this case, I know what I'm on about.
