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.
20x total zoom combines with a CMOS shift stabilization for beautiful images even at high zoom factors where images are prone to blurring.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Pros: Lots of fun. Features galore - many hidden away only to be discovered by accident. Slow motion video is a blast, although 420fps and 1000fps are so poor in quality that they are unusable. 210fps is really great for sports. I've already used the 210fps video to shoot players on my basketball team to break down their layups. Very cool. I can see it being useful for place kickers and other sorts of athletes. There are several shooting modes that use the high speed feature - although often in connection to still photos. They are confusing at first, but well worth the effort. Way more features than you realize at first (and none of them are explained in the book - fun for the experimental types).
Cons: Poor battery life. Battery requires removal for recharge. Odd shaped USB plug (Hey Casio! "U" stands for UNIVERSAL!) Also the manual is useless. The HD video is fun for quick little movies, but will never compare to a real HD video camera (note: the audio is surprisingly not all that bad).
Helpful hint: Buy a really fast SD card (mine is 20mps) if you want to use the video feature (otherwise you'll start to drop frames after a few seconds). Play around with the variety of buttons and switches. Unlike the "Best Shot" feature of past Exilim cameras, these ones seem pretty good, and there are some cool effects hiding in the "BS" menu. Have fun!
I went into the purchase knowing it is not the best point-and-shoot out there but I wasn't simply looking for a point-and-shoot. The incredible exclusive features of the camera were more important, especially those made possible by it's high-speed capabilities.
Most of the pros and cons of the camera have already been stated in other reviews. On the plus side, I like the sturdy construction, ease of use, large bright LCD screen, simple menu structure, ability to directly control all parameters except shutter speed and aperture, high-speed continuous shooting, slow-motion video, ease of downloading images, great anti-shake that works well for photos but less well for videos, HD videos look great, and precapture functions. Battery life has not been a problem so far. I haven't used the flash at all.
On the minus side, the quality of photos could be better and less grainy at higher ISO levels, although it is certainly acceptable for most shapshot situations and most of the purposes for which I will use the camera. I wish the battery charger was the type that simply plugs into the wall socket instead of having a big bulky electrical cord.
Having done my research and knowing what to expect before buying, this camera met or exceeded my expectations.
The other unique feature the camera has is a prerecord capability: it continually records either 6 megapixel stills (at 30fps) or any video mode to an internal buffer. This allows the camera to simulate negative shutter lag, by grabbing the picture in the buffer from *before* you pressed the button; or "Prerecord" video recording mode, where it stores 5 seconds of video from before you pressed the record button. Neat stuff.
Other than that, it's an ordinary SD card camera. Stills look fine, with the usual slight graininess in high-megapixel modes. High-definition video has the weird skewed "jello effect" common to CMOS sensors, especially in low light. My one minor annoyance with the case is that it's almost too thin to hold with one hand, but that's also nice to fit the camera in a pocket.
