Casio is pleased to release the slim and compact High Speed Exilim EX-FC100 digital camera, featuring high-speed burst shooting faster than an SLR camera. The Casio FC100 is also equipped with high-speed movie functions that have been squeezed into this highly mobile camera. The Exilim EX-FC100 is a compact camera measuring 3.9” wide x 2.3” high x .9” thin. It offers a 5X optical zoom lens with a CMOS shift anti-shake function and a 2.7-inch high-performance Super Clear LCD. The Casio Exilim FC100 high-speed camera model boasts an effective 9.1-megapixel resolution and 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. The Casio Exilim EX-FC100 digital camera can 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.

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. These functions work because the Casio Exilim EX-FC100 compact camera can 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.

To ensure that a natural, fleeting smile is captured, the Exilim EX-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 Casio Exilim EX-FC100 makes it possible to set in advance the time lag between the moment that the user wants 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 camera selects from the images it temporarily stores in its burst mode buffer the one image that was taken at the specified interval prior to the shutter being released, and just that image is saved.

Also, even while recording a movie clip at the standard speed (30 fps), by pressing a single button the frame rate can be changed to the 210 fps high-speed mode. Furthermore, the HD Movie function will record beautiful videos at a size of 1280x720 pixels.
