10.1 megapixel Casio Exilim FH100 camera
The Casio Exilim EX FH100 is a 10.1 effective megapixel high-speed digital camera boasting a wide-angle 24 mm 10x optical zoom lens in a compact body that makes it easy to carry anywhere. It also gives users a maximum burst rate of 40 shots per second for still images (maximum image size of 9.0 megapixels and maximum shooting capacity of 30 shots) that can now be used to photograph distant subjects thanks to the high-power zoom. The Casio FH100 also enables up to 1,000 fps high-speed movie recording that captures motion that is ordinarily too fast for the human eye to see. The Casio EX-FH100 allows users ranging from advanced amateur photographers to beginners to enjoy high-speed burst shooting. It is equipped with a mode dial that enables manual exposure burst shooting and also has a mode that makes high-speed burst shooting easy, a feature that sets the burst shooting speed to the optimal rate just by selecting the type of scene. With the Casio Exilim FH100, Casio also achieves low-noise, high-quality photography even in dim indoor lighting by using a highly sensitive CMOS sensor.
Casio FH100 digital camera features
The Casio EX-FH100 features a high-power zoom lens in a compact body measuring just 105.0 mm wide x 63.2 mm tall x 29.9 mm thick. The lens delivers all the freedom of zoom photography - from a wide-angle 24 mm to a 10X optical zoom that brings distant subjects right up close. The Casio Exilim FH100 can take up to 30 shots of 9.0 megapixel high-resolution images with high-speed burst shooting at a maximum speed of 40 shots per second. What is more, if the digital camera is set to Prerecord Continuous Shutter, users will not miss those critical moments even if they press the shutter a little late, since the camera starts shooting when the shutter button is only depressed halfway.
Casio Exilim EX-FH100 records HD movies
The Casio Exilim EX-FH100 can record high-speed movies of motion that is ordinarily too fast for the human eye to see. Users can select a recording speed of 1,000 fps, 420 fps, 240 fps, or 120 fps. The new Casio Exilim camera also has a mode that lets users to switch to high-speed recording at 240 fps or 120 fps by pressing a single button during normal movie recording (30 fps). High-speed recording allows users to enjoy dramatic, ultra slow-motion playback. The EX-FH100 also features an HD video function. Just press the dedicated Movie button to take beautiful movies at 1280x720 pixels. The camera is equipped with an HDMI terminal and stereo microphone, which enable users to enjoy a beautiful picture and realistic sound by connecting the camera to a large display TV.
Casio Exilim high speed digital camera
Thanks to the high-speed image-processing capability of the Casio Exilim FH100, moving subjects can be dynamically “cut out” and pasted into a different still shot that forms the background. Before this technology was introduced by Casio in 2009, this Hollywood-like green-screen effect was only possible with professional equipment or software, but this technology is available in the Casio EX-FH100 as an in-camera process. Casio’s Dynamic Photo feature was further enhanced through the ability to add animation art stored on the memory card to still photos captured by the camera. These animated images can be emailed, posted on social networks and even printed out at home!
Casio Exilim FH100 incorporates a CMOS sensor
Casio continues the quest for ever-higher picture quality, the foundation of every camera’s performance. The Casio EX-FH100 incorporates a back-illuminated CMOS sensor that boasts nearly twice the usual sensitivity. This lets users take beautiful photos outside as well as high-quality, low-noise photos indoors or in other dim lighting. And of course, the Casio FH100 also comes with CMOS-shift image stabilization. With the Casio Exilim FH100, users can take beautiful photos - even of human subjects at night - without worrying about photo blur. The camera can do this by internally combining images taken with a single press of the shutter button using highly sensitive high-speed burst shooting with the flash into a single, crystal-clear image.

"Casio is proud to introduce the Casio FH100 as a new addition to the Exilim line of digital cameras powered by Casio’s high-speed technologies," said Toshi Iguchi, senior general manager of Casio’s Digital Imaging Division. "Casio continues to create digital cameras that enhance the photo taking and sharing experience while also providing consumers with convenience, accessibility and quality packed into a slim, sleek body."
High speed burst shooting with the Casio EX-FH100
The Casio Exilim EX FH100 takes three images using high-speed burst shooting, adjusting the exposure for normal (standard), bright, and dim subjects, respectively, with a single press of the shutter button. These images are then combined into a single image inside the camera, enabling reproduction of full brightness throughout the photo and helping to avoid bad photos with washed out or overly dark areas when the scene is strongly backlit. The Casio EX-FH100 also has “High-Speed Burst Shooting BEST SHOT” and “High-Speed Movie BEST SHOT” modes that optimize the burst shooting or high-speed movie settings simply by selecting the type of scene to be photographed - such as a child, pet, or sports scene - at the critical moment or in slow motion. As soon as we receive a Casio Exilim FH100 test sample, we will publish a photo gallery with high resolution pictures, followed by an extensive Casio Exilim EX-FH100 review.
