Casio Exilim EX-FC100 (Black)


There's no doubt the high-speed photo and movie shooting features of the Casio Exilim EX-FC100 are remarkable given its size and price. Its features tackle one of the biggest problems with point-and-shoot cameras: missed shots because of slow...

Amazing high-speed features for size, cost; integrated Eye-Fi support; very good regular performance.

Mixed photo quality; narrow lens; noisy AF system; high-speed modes require low resolutions; no optical zoom while recording movies.

Casio provides affordable, advanced high-speed shooting for the masses with the Exilim EX-FC100, but other aspects lag behind its class.

Exilim EX-FC100


Casio has managed to squeeze the extremely high-speed photography and slow-motion video into the EX-FC100, which takes 9-megapixel images (or 6 megapixels at 30 frames per second) and records video at up to 1000 frames per second. While it had some...

The Casio Exilim EX-FC100 is an utter speed demon of a camera, to the extent we're tempted to put chrome rims and a spoiler on it. The ability to capture still photographs at 30 frames per second, and slow-motion video at up to 1000 fps, in a far more...

Casio Exilim EX-FC100


Casio has slashed the price of its innovative slow-motion shooting feature and stuffed it into a pocketable point-and-shoot.

Records excellent slow-motion movies ; Easy-to-master UI ; Fast shot-to-shot speeds ; Powerful 5X zoom lens

Weak low-light performance ; Slightly heavy for a point-and-shoot ; No HDMI connection

At ll get only from Casio.49, Casio’s Exilim EX-FC100 is a solid high-end point-and-shoot but with a couple of drawbacks. Macro mode is a pain to access, and this camera is on the heavy side, even though it has a generous 5X zoom. What makes the...

Casio Exilim EX-FC100


Lots of point-and-shoot cameras are available these days, and while you have many very good camera choices, it's hard not to feel like they're all mostly the same. Occasionally, though, something unique comes along, and the Casio Exilim EX-FC100...

Excellent high-speed shooting features ; Good image quality

Artifacts in regular video footage ; Trouble focusing at full zoom

Unique high-speed features make this a great camera for action shooters, but it's not the best model for normal video.

Casio Exilim EX-FC100 Digital Camera First Impression Review


Casio gained lots of attention in 2008 by creating two ultra-zoom cameras with incredibly impressive film and still photography speeds. This technology has now migrated to the company's pocket-sized point-and-shoot line, with the new Exilim EX-FC100....

The EX-FC100 from Casio wowed us with the impressive speed under its belt, as well as some of the interesting new features, like slow motion, but we'll have to get the camera in our lab to judge how well these tools actually perform when it comes to...

Casio Exilim EX-FC100


The Casio Exilim EX-FC100 takes the impressive speed of the EX-F1 and EX-FH20 and squeezes it into a much smaller, $330 package. It shoots nine-megapixel images, or six-megapixel photos at 30fps. It can also record slow motion video at 1000fps (224x64...

The strength of the EX-FC100 is obviously in its extreme speed. In other features it was noticeably lacking, including its pedestrian LCD, cramped controls, and illogical menu system. However, many of these small problems pale beside the ability to...

Casio EX-FC100


While it had some issues with image quality, the high speeds are a powerful draw

Ludicrously high-speed slow-motion

1000 fps mode is all but useless; No manual controls; Mediocre color, noise, and resolution

The Casio Exilim EX-FC100 is an utter speed demon of a camera, to the extent we’re tempted to put chrome rims and a spoiler on it. The ability to capture still photographs at 30 frames per second, and slow-motion video at up to 1000 fps, in a far more...

Review: Casio EX-FC100 digital camera


After the release of Casio's EX-FH20 digital camera, it was only a matter of time until the company trickled down the technology of high-speed shooting and HD video capture to a pocketable point-and-shoot. The FH-20, as you recall, is Casio's follow-up...

Review: Casio Exilim EX-FC100 digital camera


It's the high-speed shooting features that really set the Exilim EX-FC100 from other point-and-shoot cameras. Otherwise, it's a very capable device, offering all of the features you'd expect in a compact, pocket-size camera.

As a point-and-shoot camera, the EX-FC100 is fairly typical: it has a 9-megapixel sensor, allowing you to extract large prints from your images, a 5x optical zoom for extra telephoto reach, a stabilized sensor for sharper handheld shooting, and all of...
