Casio releases 1,000FPS compact cameras

By on January 9, 2009

Upgrading its Exilim cameras Casio has announced the release of its first two point-and-shoot cameras, which are claimed to shoot at extremely high frame rates. As their reviews, these are known as the EX-FS10 and EX-FC100, the two cameras brags of capturing traditional pics at 9 mega-pixels but come built-in with a new imaging engine, which is capable of recording lower-resolution videos at around 1,000 frames per sec, and makes allowance for a awfully slow motion footage in spite of the cameras’ compact footprints.

In addition, in order to burst shoot at 30 frames per sec, the two cameras are also capable of stepping step down to 6 megapixels and can record 720p movies at the similar speed.

According to the developer, the FC100 is the high-end variant and comes built-in with a 5X optical zoom lens along with a 2.7-inch preview LCD, while the FS10 comes armed with 3X zoom together with a 2.5-inch display.

As the features, in the traditional range, the EX-S5, which is prized at $180, claims to share the style of the FS10 but drops the high frame rate as well as 720p video for a 10-megapixel sensor along with 3X zoom. The EX-Z270, which is prized at $230, boasts of improving on this with 4X zoom and optical stabilization, whereas the Z400, which comes at $300, touts to restore 720p video and can move up to 12 megapixels.

There is not any specific dates announced by Casio as to the new wave of cameras, but talking about the price tag of the EX-FS10 and EX-FC100, which I forgot to mention above is that the EX-FS10 will be sold for$400, while the EX-FC100 could be yours at just $350. Both the compact cameras will not just help to take the best but the rest of the precious moments of your life that you may miss in the long run.
