CASIO Introduces New HIGH SPEED EXILIM Digital Camera with Ultra High-Speed Burst Shooting Faster Than an SLR
Camera Takes 40 shots per second and records high speed movies at 1000 fps
Casio's Press Release
In March of this year, Casio released the EXILIM Pro EX-F1, the world's fastest digital camera*. The EX-F1 is capable of ultra-high speed burst shooting at 60 fps and can record high speed movies at up to 1,200 fps, helping users catch each decisive moment, and even capturing motion that the human eye cannot ordinarily perceive. These features have created a totally new genre of digital photography and won the respect and admiration of camera enthusiasts and professional photographers alike.
*As of September 16, 2009, based on a Casio survey for consumer market digital cameras.
While maintaining the ability to perform at speeds unmatched by the world's top digital SLRs, the new HIGH SPEED EXILIM EX-FH20 is designed to appeal to a broader range of users. In addition to simplifying controls by placing all shooting mode settings on a single dial, Casio also gave the EX-FH20 a 20X optical zoom on a surprisingly compact body, 27% smaller and 28% lighter than the EX-F1. Its speed and ease of use truly puts this camera in a class of its own. In recognition of these unique characteristics, with today's release of the new EX-FH20, Casio has launched the new HIGH SPEED EXILIM series, which includes this camera and the even faster EX-F1. Casio expects the revolutionary capabilities of its HIGH SPEED EXILIM cameras to generate entirely new applications for digital photography.
'Casio continues to create a new digital camera market focusing on high speed capabilities with the introduction of the innovative HIGH SPEED EXILIM EX-FH20,' said Bill Heuer, Vice President of Sales for Casio�s Digital Imaging Division. 'The new HIGH SPEED EXILIM series allows for images to be captured faster than ever before without compromising image quality.'
