Product Description

Casio Exilim EX-FC100 Digital Camera - Black EX-FC100BKDBB Digital Cameras

From the Manufacturer

By reducing the size of the circuitry and the image sensor units, Casio has produced the slim EX-FC100, which offers a high-speed 30 shot-per-second burst rate and high-speed movies at a maximum of 1000 fps. It also delivers a number of other innovative functions, including the ability to capture a still image while viewing the movement of the subject in slow motion and automatically selecting and saving one frame from continuous shots.

The Exilim EX-FC100 measures only 3.9 inches wide, 2.3 inches high and .9 inches thin. It features a 5x optical zoom lens with CMOS shift anti-shake function and a 2.7-inch high-performance Super Clear LCD. This high-speed model also boasts an effective 9.1-megapixel resolution.

Casio Exilim EX-FC100 Highlights

30 shot-per-second high-speed burst shooting
The EX-FC100 can take up to 30 shots per second of high-resolution 6.0-megapixel images. What’s more, it can save up to 25 frames prior to the instant that the shutter button is actually pressed, so even if the user hits the shutter a bit late, that special moment will not be missed. The number of shots per second can be set at 30, 15, 10, 5, 3 or auto, and the user can set the total number of shots in one burst at 30, 20, 10 or 5.

Easy, convenient functions that make the most of high-speed burst shooting
Automatically record just the best of the images captured in a high-speed burst. Also, a number of images from a burst can be combined into a single image. It is this high-speed burst capability that offers the functionality for easily creating photos precisely in accordance with the wishes of the user. After taking a set of shots, there is no need to go to the trouble of manually select the best one.

5x Optical Zoom plus 4x Digital Zoom
20x total zoom combines with a CMOS shift stabilization for beautiful images even at high zoom factors where images are prone to blurring.

Pre-Record CS
High-speed recording of action that occurs before you press the shutter button. The EX-FC100 allows you to capture the perfect moment even if you press the button too late. With the amazing pre-record function the camera begins taking pictures before you fully press the button. This function works by storing up to 30 images in a buffer on the camera so that you never miss the action.

Slow Motion View
By pressing a dedicated button during shooting, it is possible to view the movement of the subject in slow motion on the LCD monitor. The user can press the shutter while viewing the LCD monitor, selecting the perfect moment to capture from a scene that looks as if time has been slowed down.

High-Speed Anti-Shake and High-Speed Night Scene functions
Combine a number of images taken in burst mode, and then align the position of the subject to form a single shot. This means that, even without a tripod, zoom photography and night shots are beautifully rendered, virtually making photo blur a thing of the past.

High-Speed Best Selection
To ensure that a natural, fleeting smile is captured, the FC100 can automatically select the best image from a set of images taken in burst mode, with the subject smiling, with no photo blur, and with the subject’s eyes open. The best image will be saved.

Casio Exilim FC100 highlights
HD Movie function
The EX-FC100 lets you shoot beautiful 1280 x 720-pixel HD movies at a rate of 30 frames per second. After your video is recorded you can view it by connecting your camera directly to a Full HD TV for big screen viewing. The EX-FC100 also comes with USB cables and software that allows you to view your HD films on your computer or to burn them to a DVD.

Lag Correction
You can set in advance the time lag between the moment that you want to capture and the actual time of taking the picture. This way, it is possible to capture that precious instant at any time, with minimal lag. This works because the cameras select from the images they temporarily store in their burst mode buffers the one image that was taken at the specified interval prior to the shutter being released, and just that image is saved.

High-speed movie recording at up to 1,000 fps
The 1,000 frame-per-second High Speed Movie capabilities of the EX-FC100 is the next evolution of digital imaging. This feature allows you to easily shoot ultra slow-motion movies at speeds that were only available on super-expensive, pro-level cameras.

Settings for 210 fps, 420 fps and variable 30-210 fps are included with the camera. While 30-210 fps is selected, you can toggle the movie recording speed between 30 fps and 210 fps, giving you the ability to record at the speed that's right for the moment.

YouTube Capture Mode
Shoot. Easy Upload. Share. Recording videos for YouTube has never been easier. Simply record videos with the YouTube Capture Mode, upload using Casio?s YouTube Uploader software and share. It?s that easy.

As a simple point and shoot, this camera delivers a ton of options geared towards non-experienced photographers, meaning, no manual controls. But on the flip-side it gives you a whole bunch of custom shooting modes. Almost to the point where it feels like a type of pseudo-manual control. Instead of setting you aperture to wide open for portraits, you just set it for portrait shooting. Instead of setting a high shutter speed at your kid's soccer game, you set it to high-speed sports. I can live with that.

As for video, the title of this review sums it up. Don't expect to shoot anything of real quality with this camera. First of all, you need a lot of light. Otherwise, the noise is pretty bad. Secondly, this being a CMOS sensor, the jello-effect is pretty pervasive. Plan on using a tripod or monopod whenever possible. Handheld footage is pretty awful, even with the stabilizer turned on.

Despite this, I did have fun recording my golf swing at 210fps. And when it comes down to it, this camera is meant for fun and it delivers.

Just received this little powerhouse today and have already made a panorama and a high speed video. Really easy, and just really a fun little camera - and it has its flaws, of course.

One quick note: you must feed this camera LIGHT, especially in the high-speed video and 30fps burst modes. Expecting anything decent indoors or at night and you'll be disappointed. The regular still pictures are fine, though. I viewed plenty of high speed clips on YouTube and indoors you will get flicker (usually from flourescent lighting), but it still does the job. This camera shines outdoors.

There are three main functions that are really great and unique (can't emphasize unique enough) for a P&S.

1. High-speed video: the 30 - 210 is awesome. 210 on its own is good too, obviously. 420 is good for a science experiment or something that you really don't care about the size and resolution (plus massive compression). 210 FPS will show you a whole new world. And it does do 1000 FPS, basically useless but if you need to see how a lighter works then well, 1000 FPS is for you.

2. 30 FPS burst: This is really a nice feature. The FC100 takes 30 6 megapixel shots in one second. Think about that for a second, very cool. And the images are clean and clear. Quality is fine, unless you're a pixel perfectionist. I did a quick panorama of San Francisco (from Alameda) by simply clicking on the shutter button and moving the camera (quickly) from left to right. Stitched them back together for a nice panorama that I didn't waste a lot of time taking manual pics. But this function has some many other uses. I'll probably use it most of the time for any old pic because you can select the best (camera also will do this automatically for you) and delete the rest. Pretty cool.

Color Name: White Verified Purchase
I have a 4 year old Casio EX-Z750 that I love, so I know something about what a great camera Casio can make. This one fell short for me because of one simple reason. Auto Focus does not work during Standard or HD movies. A bigger problem is that you can't even get focused and then start videoing because it has something called "Fixed Focal Length". This is technical jargon for "We were too lazy to do the focus right." My 4 year old Casio EX-Z750 auto focuses during video. The videos that the old camera takes are awesome. The videos this one takes are all blurry because of the focus issue. Hopefully Casio will get their act together and put together a firmware to fix this. I have contacted support and let them know about my discontent with this and if others do as well, I think it can be addressed. Like I said, their camera could do it 4 years ago.

Beyond my HUGE complaint. The high speed video is awesome. It takes great pictures and video of action. They got the part that most people are buying this camera for right. The problem is I bought it to also take awesome regular speed HD videos. I purchased a 16 GB card for it since I knew that it would eat a lot of space to do these videos. The problem here is that the camera will only take videos up to 4 GB in size. This means 18 minutes. 54 minutes in standard. Yes I can have 4 4 GB files on one card, but if I am going to video a performance of something I don't want to have to hit start and stop every 18 minutes. This isn't a deal killer like the lack of focus, but it's annoying. You cannot change the detail level to something like EP, LP, SP like with a video camera. Just 18 minutes or 54. The camera records video in MJPEG. This means huge file sizes.

First and foremost just the fact that you can get a camera for under $300 that will take 1000FPS video is enough to buy this camera. Find me anywhere where you can get this type of performance in a camera in the $300 price range, I think you will find that it is impossible. I just don't believe that the naysayers understand the kind of incredible performance this camera is capable of. This is a one of a kind camera that is at a price that is unheard of.
Having said that, the quality of the video is OK, but again what do you expect for $300, c'mon. It is a steal at this price, and the video is useable and not meant for high quality video, it is a fun way to experiment with super slo-mo. I have found that this camera is everything I had hoped for, it take adequate still photos, and has 1000FPS capabilities, unheard of in a camera in this price range. I have read for this price we expected............, a Point & shoot camera is designed to take all the thinking out of picture taking and leave the decisions in the hands of the camera. They are not for the thinking photographer, they are for a novice who may not have a grasp on basic photography. Sorry but it is true. You want control over your photos, pony up at least $900 and get a quality consumer grade DSLR, then you can have some say in how your photos come out. No RAW ability, OK, no control, no shutter, aperture, or manual controls, no control. small CMOS sensor = NOISE, too many pixels jammed into too small of a space, sorry, you are not going to get high quality photos. You will get usuable photos up to 8 X 10, good precieved sharpness there. Pro quality, no, too much noise, snapshot quality, yes very good for that type of shooting.
