Casio Exilim EX-FH100 (Black)

 

The Casio Exilim EX-FH100 camera is all about high-speed shooting and a high-zoom lens in a compact body. Its high-speed capabilities come courtesy of a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor that let the camera capture 9-megapixel images at speeds up to 40...

Flexible lens in a compact body; good control layout; useful and fun high-speed shooting options.

No fully automatic mode; mixed shooting performance; near-useless raw image capture.

The high-speed Casio Exilim EX-FH100 is a compelling compact megazoom camera for those constantly worried about missing a snapshot.

Casio Exilim EX-FH100

 

Though the Casio EX-FH100 pocket megazoom camera ($350 as of June 1, 2010) offers slick, curvy looks to frame its 10X-optical-zoom lens (24mm to 240mm), the main attraction for shutterbugs is its unique high-speed shooting mode. It's also a good...

Superb battery life ; Sharp, well-exposed images ; RAW shooting mode ; High-speed shooting mode for stills and video

Takes time when saving RAW and high-speed shots ; Laggy autofocus ; Noisy lens motors ; Limited f-stop options in aperture priority

Casio's first high-speed pocket megazoom has superb battery life and image quality, but its noisy zooming and laggy autofocus are drawbacks.

Casio EX-FH100 First Impressions Review

 

Front The FH100 is a good-looking silver camera with black accents. It measures a compact 4.1 x 2.4 x 1.1 inch (105 x 63 x 30mm) and weighs about 8 oz. (227g). The camera front has an autofocus assist/self-timer indicator lamp above and to the side of...

Exilim EX-FH100

 

($349) is a feature-packed compact ultra zoom camera. At its core is a 10 Megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS sensor that allows for high speed continuous shooting, video frame rates as high as 1000 fps (at low resolutions), and HD movie recording. Other...

Good photo quality at low ISOs ; 10X, ultra wide 24 - 240 mm zoom lens in a compact, well built body ; Sensor-shift image stabilization ; 3-inch LCD has good outdoor and low light visibility ; Tons of Best Shot (scene) modes, several of which are quite...

Review: Casio's Exilim EX-FH100 pocket megazoom camera

 

Casio's high-speed, energy-efficient EX-FH100 is arguably the most versatile pocket megazoom around, thanks to its super-slow-motion shooting. The sacrifices here are lens control, a bit of video quality, and less-exciting scene modes than what you get...

In the Macworld Lab's subjective tests for image quality, the 10.1-megapixel FH100 ranked in the top tier of our test group of pocket megazooms, serving up sharp images with good color accuracy and exposure levels. A bit of noticeable distortion and...

Casio EX-FH100

 

Casio has updated the popular EX-FC100 (last year's model) with the EX-FH100, which adds a little more resolution and doubles the zoom magnification from 5x to 10x. The FH100 also features the popular high frame rate feature found in the FC100.

Consumer review by:

"Great low-light, HS burst, slow-mo video, battery life."

 

The Casio Exilim EX-FH100's four main draws over other cameras are it's low-light capability, its high speed burst photography, it's slow motion video, and it's loooong battery life.

excellent low-light performance, high speed shutter (40fps burst),

While shooting video, optical zoom is disabled (though you can still use digital zoom.
