Casio Exilim W63CA 8-Megapixel Super Japanese Camera Phone Hits FCC For Some Reason

The super Japanese Exilim W63CA cellphone has hit the FCC, which comes with a flip body and an 8-megapixel camera. Casio's taking the same tactic Sony Ericsson does with their Cyber-shot cellphones and placing a camera brand on a high-end camera phone, hopefully to advance both the phone and the camera brand in the… »8/26/08 2:50pm8/26/08 2:50pm

Mo' Slow-Mo: Objects Breaking (or Not) for the Casio EX-F1

Our friend Robert Woodhead (of slow-mo Mentos-n-Coke fame) has kindly shared another of his Casio Exilim EX-F1 masterpieces, this time water balloons and china slowly shattering (and occasionally not shattering) to the tune of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. They're a mixture of 300, 600 and 1200 frame-per-second shots,… »5/11/08 9:00pm5/11/08 9:00pm

OK, say it: What the hell? What's with all the Casio EX-F1 love?

DIY Discovery Channel: Casio EX-F1 Slow-Mo Cam In My Backyard

Tomato violence only marks the beginning of my love affair with the Casio's Exilim EX-F1, aka the Hiro Nakamura supercam. It's crazy addictive.

Casio Exilim EX-F1: Tomato Violence at 300, 600 and 1200fps

What's the first thing we did with our Casio Exilim EX-F1, the Hiro Nakamura camera/camcorder that makes time stand still? We recorded a mini Cuisinart laying havoc to some tomatoes. Why? If you have to ask, you probably shouldn't be here. The top vid is a view of the carnage at 300 frames per second. (As you'll see,… »4/18/08 8:50am4/18/08 8:50am

Casio Announces More Skinny, Probably Mediocre EXILIM Point-and-Shoots

Casio just announced some new point-and-shoots in its EXILIM line, including the "world's smallest and thinnest 10-megapixel camera," the EX-S10. Look, I'm as excited as the next guy that you've managed to make a 15-mm-wide camera, but if it takes crappy photos I could really care less how small it is. And with the … »1/06/08 6:00pm1/06/08 6:00pm
