Casio America (http://www.casio.com/home/) has released its newest
Exilim digital camera, the High Speed Exilim EX-FH20, which is
capable of ultra high-speed burst shooting at 40 fps and can record
High Speed movies at up to 1,000 fps.
The camera’s design places all shooting mode settings on a single
dial. The EX-FH20 also sports a 20X optical zoom on a compact body
that’s 27 percent smaller and 28 percent lighter than its
predecessor, the EX-F1. The EX-FH20, with a manufacturer’s suggested
retail price of US$599.99, will be available in black at retail
stores in October.
It has 9.1 effective megapixels and a high power, wide angle zoom
lens. The EX-FH20 is equipped with a 26 mm-equivalent wide angle zoom
lens that can close in on subjects with a 20X optical zoom. The
camera also features a CMOS shift anti-shake function to support
The EX-FH20 can capture action in high definition, 7-megapixel (3072
x 2304 pixel) images with ultra-High Speed burst shooting at up to 40
fps. Users can select from seven burst settings, allowing them to
capture from one fps up to 40 fps in a single burst. What’s more,
users can pre-record up to 40 still images not just at the instant
they press the shutter button, but before, says Bill Heuer, vice
president of sales for Casio’s Digital Imaging Division.
The EX-FH20 can record High Speed movie footage of motion too fast
for the human eye, for ultra slow motion playback, he adds. Users can
select from recording speeds of 1,000 fps, 420 fps or 210 fps and can
also switch from the standard speed of 30 fps to High Speed recording
at 210 fps during recording at the touch of a button.
