  • This innovative camera shoots full-resolution bursts at up to 60 frames per second.


  • There's simply nothing else like the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1. No other prosumer camera has faster shutter-speeds, and no other prosumer camcorder has anything close to its ultra-high frame-rates. The camera's Achilles heel, though, is that its still-image quality is competitive only with point-and-shoots, and its slo-mo videos are so tiny and compressed they're barely YouTube quality. The Casio EX-F1 is an incredible, endlessly fun device, and it feels like an important first in digital-imaging.


  • - The zoom is disabled during continuous shutter operations.
    - It was clearly noticeable on many ISO 400 shots.
    - The lightning-fast shutter made sure each video frame was sharp, with minimal blurring.


  • Whilst not perfect then nor an enthusiast's dream by any means, the Casio EX-ZR10 looks good, is priced reasonably fairly, is simple to use and moreover fun.


  • For those who just want to point and shoot in the main, but would occasionally appreciate a couple of extra gizmos at their fingertips for when they start to get bored, the EX-ZR10 comes into its own. The HDR features, Slide Panorama, slow-motion video clips and general speediness of operation impress. Sadly this is let down by corner softness at the maximum wide angle - one of the most often-used focal lengths for a compact camera.


  • Offering ease of use and a rucksack full of useful features that further enhance the status of this otherwise familiar point-and-shooter, the Casio Exilim EX-ZR10 would well serve those who value the convenience of an auto everything model with few manual features, yet just enough to prevent boredom from setting in.

    - The Hybrid label applies because the H20G includes not only a GPS receiver, but the combination of a three-way accelerometer and a three-way direction sensor, which allows tracking of motion after the GPS signal has been lost -- for example when indoors, or underground.


  • If you're an avid traveler, you'll like the sharp photos, 10x zoom lens, and integrated GPS the Casio Exilim EX-H20G offers, but if you don't need to geotag your photos, you can get better performance for the price.


  • As with most big zoom compacts claiming to be all in one solutions, the pluses surrounding the Casio EX-H20G - extended creative options due to that broader focal range - outweigh the negative of slightly wider physical dimensions. And it's worth recalling that just a couple of years back you would have to buy an enthusiast-targeted bridge model to get anything like the lens reach offered here.
