This camera is the industry anomaly!
NapoleonOfTheNow
It takes pictures fast enough to catch my baby grand daughter's fleeting smile, and the pictures are very clear.
Donna K. Reynolds
The key features in this camera are its overall versatility and its much touted high speed video.

I bought this camera mainly for the high speed video capability, and I have not been disappointed. This camera's high speed video capabilities are far and away the best you can buy in this price range. In fact, I don't think there is anything on the market right now that can match these abilities even if you were willing to pay 2 or 3 times the price of the EX-F1.

High speed video
The closest competitors to the EX-F1 (besides Casio's other high speed video camera, the EX-FH20) are Sony's HD camcorders that can record 240 frames per second (although not in HD) for a whopping three seconds. I've never used one of these cameras, but I have to imagine the 3-second clip length limitation is quite cumbersome to work with. The EX-F1, by contrast, is limited only by a 4 GB file size cap. High speed video (at all three speeds) takes up about 2MB/sec of recording, meaning you can record for about 30 minutes in high speed mode before you reach that 4GB file size limit. Of course, it would take 300 minutes, or 5 hours, to watch back the whole clip if you were shooting 300 fps. That's a limitation I can live with.

The 1200 fps resolution is pretty small and pixilated, but I'm still glad to see that speed is available. I use it sometimes and the results can be quite interesting even if they are thumbnail-size.

One thing you may or may not be aware of is the amount of light required to shoot high speed video. High speed video, by definition, requires very fast shutter speeds. You must use at least 1/300th, 1/600th, or 1/1200th shutter speed to shoot 300, 600, or 1200 frames per second, respectively. Basically that means you need very bright lights or daylight.

The key features in this camera are its overall versatility and its much touted high speed video. In fact, at the time of writing this article, this is the only consumer level digital camera that can do this (some HD video cameras, such as Samsung VP-HMX20C also have this feature, but with take length limitations). Mind you, the high speed video can only be done in limited resolution. At top speed of 1200 frames per second, the resolution drops to 336 × 96, which looks like viewing the action through a half-closed letterbox. As the shutter speed is high, you will also need plenty of light. Indoor lighting won't do at 1200fps, you will need daylight. At 300 fps the resolution is 512 × 384, which is OK for Youtube. Actually, if you're looking for sample videos, try searching Youtube for "EX F1".

About its versatility; this camera can do almost everything. It can go from macro to 12x - both of which also work in high speed, it can take both pictures and shoot full HD video with stereo sound. You can even take still snapshots while shooting video (not available during high speed). It has a 60fps burst shoot capacity which makes it easier to find the perfect moment. The burst shoot can also be used for "digital anti shake" which is handy for shooting distant objects at maximum zoom. I was looking for an automated time lapse feature though.

Handily, the EX-F1 saves its videos directly in H.264 QuickTime format. These pack quite well and are easy to scrub and edit. As a downside, the videos are quite heavily packed, which becomes very evident especially at 1200fps, when pixel motion gets so slow the motion estimation algorithms go overboard and cause warping.

This camera is the industry anomaly! As of September 2014, the discontinued Casio Exilim EX-F1 still has better performance than Casio's newest high-speed engine 3 cameras. This camera also beats out all other competitors like the Nikon 1 series cameras among other brands. I have also purchased, used, and sold my Edgertronic camera, still preferring the Casio Exilim EX-F1. The Edgertronic's image quality being very disappointing for the price.

Again to state it plainly, the Exilim EX-F1 has better performance in frame rate (1,200fps compared to many other models max of 1,000fps at lower resolutions), in exposure (up to 1/40,000 or 25 microseconds - as stated in the manual - compared to competitors of 1/16,000 for Nikon and 1/20,000 for Casio's current best), and in record length (file sizes in the gigabytes limited only by your memory card compared to Nikon 1 cameras being a few seconds).

I wanted a high speed camera to troubleshoot machine problems at work. After much research, I found this Casio EX-F1, seems to be the only pro-sumer high speed video camer available under $14,000. After more research, found that this camera came out in 2008 for $1000(haven't figured out why it sells for $2800 now)and they discontinued it in 2010. There wasn't much info available in using this in a factory environment, but I decided to spend the $2800 vs. $14000. I also bought a seperate light, which is really needed if shooting faster than 300 fps. Like other reviewers have noted, the resolution at 600 fps was not great, but, after the first troubleshooting session, I was able to find our problem and correct it. The price was well justified with just this one incident. I haven't tried out any other features of this camera since I only needed it for the high speed video. As long as you don't need a higher resolution, I would recommend this camera. Pretty fun to play with also. I really hope that Casio or another manufacturer will come out with an updated version that would still be available at pro-sumer prices.
