Casio EX-F1


The EX-F1 is an unevenly performing camera that almost always seems to present a downside to counter each amazing high point. Its most unique feature is its ability to capture video at amazingly high framerates, all the way up to 1,200 frames per...

Speedy JPEG performance. Good, clear image results. Lens ring feels good controlling zoom or focus. Low cost for 1,200-frames-per-second video

Low resolutions limit what you can do with high-speed video footage. 1080i video not natively supported on Macs

Casio EX-F1


Users can record images not just at the instant they press the shutter button, but before. Continuously recording at up to 60 images per second, a maximum of 60 images can be saved in the camera's own buffer memory even before the shutter button is...

The EX-F1 uses the H.264 video standard, which utilizes the AAC audio codec widely enjoyed in Apple's iPod, etc. The camera's High-Definition movie recording modes included 1920x1080 or 1280x720 resolutions. There's also the Standard Definition 640x480...

Exilim EX-F1


Unquestionably the most futuristic camera of 2008, the Casio EXILIM EX-F1 offers unparalleled capabilities. It can take 60 full-res pictures in a second, It shoots both standard- and high-def video and, for its most jaw-dropping trick, offers...

Blistering-fast continuous shutter stills ; Prerecord capability for stills and movies ; Slow-mo video (at least for a few days) ; Long zoom lens

Large and heavy versus other ultra-zooms ; Expensive ; Auto focus performance slow and inconsistent

Casio's EXILIM EX-F1 promises features no digital camera on the market has offered before, and it delivers - with some reservations. The camera's strongest suit is the option to shoot up to 60 full-res 6-megapixel images in a second. Combined with a...

Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 Black Digital Camera


You've seen photos that freeze the action as a baseball hits the bat, a race car bounces over a curb, fireworks burst in the sky, or a droplet splashes into a glass of milk. Even a hobbyist photographer can take shots like these easily with the Casio...

Unique slow motion abilities ; Sharp telephoto shots

Wide-angle zoom could be wider ; Storing so many frames takes time

At $1000, the Casio EX-F1 isn't cheap. But for subjects such as sports and wildlife photography, where high frame rates and HD video stand out, it could be worth every penny

Casio Exilim EX-F1


This innovative super-zoom camera records full HD and slow-motion movies and can shoot a whopping 60 frames per second.

Takes slow-motion video at three speeds ; Highly effective burst shooting ; Intuitive menu system

Slow startup, processing speeds ; Can’t adjust settings during high-speed shooting ; Doesn't come with photo editing/management software

Fortunately, the on-screen menus are less complicated. The settings you're most likely to adjust—ISO and white balance, for example—have corresponding icons lining the right side of the LCD. Use the Up and Down arrow keys to highlight them, and the...

Casio EX-F1 Is a Speed-Demon Snapper


Pop quiz, hotshot. There's a bomb on a bus. Once the bus accelerates to 55 miles per hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 55, it blows up. What do you

Divvy up those 60 shots per second in multiple ways: 30 shots per second for two seconds, 20 for three seconds, and so on. Mini-HDMI jack makes for sexy F1/HDTV pairing. Pre-record mode means you'll capture moments you thought you had missed

12x zoom is slower than a three-toed sloth with an Ambien addiction. Crappy low-light performance only partially forgiven by the camera’s zippy flash. No optical eyepiece so you’ll have to rely on the tiny electronic viewfinder. Flash doesn't work in...

Video: Casio EX-F1 SuperSloMo is small


Casio's EX-F1 has been out for a few days in Japan and to our delight, super happy tech site Impress had the chance to review the new ultra-quick, 6 megapixel shooter. How quick? Try 60fps burst or up to 1,200fps video. We're not going to try and ...

Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 First Impressions Review


999 price is less expensive than other slow-motion cameras, Full resolution at 60 fps, External mic jack, Hot shoe, Standard RAW format

999 is pricier than other ultra-zoom cameras, Mono speaker, Longest menus ever, Only electronic image stabilization in Movie mode

Have you ever watched a long movie and felt like you were left hanging at the end? I'm sorry if this review leaves you feeling that way. The Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1's hottest features are ones that couldn't be fully evaluated on the show floor. The...

Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 Review


Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 reviewed by ConsumerSearch, which notes pros and cons, along with reviews and ratings for the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 and comparisons to other Digital Cameras (Ultra-Zoom)

Ultra-fast shutter; Pre-record and motion-activated modes; Advanced movie modes

Image quality not the best; Steep learning curve; Expensive

Product Specifications

The EXILIM Pro EX-F1 incorporates a high speed CMOS sensor and high speed LSI processor. After building in 6.0 million effective pixels and a 12X optical zoom, the developers focused on achieving a burst shooting speed capability that was hitherto unheard of. Using the camera's ultra-high speed burst shooting for still images or its high speed movie recording mode, users can capture a split second's movement with greater detail than before, allowing them to catch each decisive moment, and even motion that the human eye cannot ordinarily perceive.
