Casio Exilim EX-ZR100

 

We first got a glimpse of the Casio EX-ZR100 at CES. The high-speed EXILIM point-and-shoot was unfortunately overshadowed by the trendy TRYX, Casio's Facebook-friendly, turnable, twistable camera. And while the TRYX has more than a few gimmicks on its...

Excellent battery life ; High-speed image and video-capture capabilities ; Natural color and tone ; Impressive low-light performance ; Bright, sharp LCD display

HDR effects are cheesy ; Ugly in-camera UI ; Lack of pre-sets isolates some users

The point-and-shoot’s speed, low-light performance, and superior build do enough to justify its $300 price tag and just might bump it into the same realm as competitor cameras from Canon and Nikon.

Delays when saving series of high speed shots ; Start-up time is a bit sluggish ; Sharp gradations along edges of some photos

Debuting at around s 2011 high-speed lineup.00, the EX-ZR100 is Casio's latest flagship high-speed camera, capable of 1000FPS video recording (albeit heavily letterboxed), and up to 40 FPS still image shooting. The camera also sports a 12.5x optical...

High-speed shooting and decent performance, despite some heavy in-camera image processing

1000 fps video and 40 fps still shooting; Solid construction and design

The highest speed video looks awful; Heavy processing can hurt image quality

Casio Exilim EX-ZR100

 

If you feel the need for speed, then the 12.1-megapixel Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 ($299.99 direct) is for you. It's lightning-fast and takes great photos and video, but its quirks, including a less-than-stellar user interface, keep this camera from the top...

Incredibly fast shooting and performance. Good low-light performance. Gorgeous LCD. Lots of artsy features

Expensive. Autofocus was occasionally slow. Photos were often blurry at high zoom levels. Ugly interface

The Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 is a speed demon that shoots excellent photos and video, but its high price tag, and quirks with zooming and autofocus, hold it back somewhat.

One amazing camera!

 

A couple years ago, I never would thought recommend a Casio camera. The quality, in my opinion, was subpar and their technology eons behind Canon and Nikon. However, I know when to admit I'm wrong, and this camera is the reason. Nothing can match a 30...

Slow motion video capabilities, smooth panorama mode, high speed shooting, excellent low light performance, small pocket friendly size, telephoto zoom, quirky features

Image stabilization goes out at 6x optical zoom, confusing menu for beginners, softer pictures at higher ISO speeds
