Video review on Casio’s “EX-FS10”, the 1000fps super high speed camera


(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 09:19 Mar. 27, 2009.)

High shooting speed can be utilized to anything. From anti-shake function to slo-mo videos. Casio's ultra thin high speed camera "EX-FS10" can take 30 fps still image and 1000fps slo-mo video, like the one in Sam Peckinpah or John Woos movies. The camera is in store from today, and Casio kindly lend us their sample product for a review.

Read on for stills and videos taken by the camera. The video of slo-mo running train is just awesome.

「EX-FS10」の方がやや厚め。


Handy as the picture shows.


The boot up and responses are very quick and tight. No dullness at all.


Trying 30fps still shooting. Notice the quick image saving to the memory card.


Shooting outside


3X optical zooming.


12X zooming when combined with digital zoom. There's also "HD zoom" mode, which can take 16.2X zoomed VGA images.


Shooting flowerbed


Macro focus range is as short as 10cm(about 4")


This image of running motorcycle was taken in high speed shooting mode. A slight blur occurs when the object moves too fast.


The video of train taken by 1000fps high speed movie. The resolution forced to go down to 224*64 but this is an awesome slo-mo video.
