Gadget Pr0n: Casio EXF1 Digital Camera »



Ready to get your gadget on? Yeah you are!

What You Need to Know

  • It’s what's called a bridge camera since it's in between the two classes
  • 6 megapixels isn't the amount of detail you're used to, but it does have a 12x optical zoom
  • Also a bit heavier than most small DSLRs
  • It takes 60 full res still shots in a second and films at 1200 fps
  • Pictures look really amazing.
  • Even if you have to use the flash, it shoots at 7 frames per second
  • Movie mode shoots in full HD at 60 fps, 1200 fps at 336x 96 resolution
  • It also has a feature where you can hold the button down and capture the last second of time and pick the frame you wanted for the picture; sort of like a TiVo for real life
  • It really has to be great lighting in order to see a lot of detail
  • The controls are intuitive, but are sort of slow; the zoom and electronic view finder don't respond as fast as the actual camera
  • The image is optically and digitally stabilized, but it's not the best we've seen
  • You can't change out the lens

Price

  • The incredibly slow motion is amazing, but isn't the most practical feature for the money
  • Great entry level digital SLRs like Nikon's D-60 are $700
  • Wait till Casio lowers this to $500, then pick it up because it's such an awesome toy
  • You can buy it for just under $1,000
