Exilim EX-FH20: The Next Casio Slo-Mo Shooting Camera Hits 1000 FPS

Back in March we raved about Casio's EX-F1, and it's just six months later and now Casio's got another super-fast frame rate camera for us: the EX-FH20. It's a smaller and lighter beast than its predecessor, but it has 9.1-megapixels, can still shoot ultra-high-speed bursts at 40 fps and high speed movies at "up to… » 9/16/08 4:41am 9/16/08 4:41am

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 2:50pm 8/26/08 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 9:00pm 5/11/08 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. Last weekend I went looking for fast-moving objects to capture in slow-mo, and in my backyard I came up with a freakin' menagerie of unexpectedly interesting little beasties. » 4/22/08 10:00pm 4/22/08 10:00pm

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 8:50am 4/18/08 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 6:00pm 1/06/08 6:00pm

Casio Exilim 720, Possessed by Hello Kitty

Some Casio Exilim 720's have gotten dressed up by their cruel, older sisters in wuss gear. Rebranded the Hello Kitty Camera, the device still takes 7.2MP pictures, but it's been covered in pink and stickers and evilness. AND during startup, the camera makes weird, gross Hello Kitty noises and shows weird, gross Hello… » 10/12/07 9:48am 10/12/07 9:48am
