Casio EX-FH20 Digital Camera Review

For today's Gadget Pr0n, we hit you with a super-tricked out digital camera that does video just as well as stills. It's designed to shoot 40 hi-res photos in one second or video at 1,000 frames per second. We'll let you know if it's as impressive as it sounds or just another over-hyped piece of tech.

What You Need to Know

  • It is a 9 megapixel camera with a 20x optical zoom and 26mm wide angle lens
  • There's a 3.1” LCD screen on the back, so everything is easy to see
  • Picture quality all around was pretty solid, though we did see some grain in some of our low light shots
  • This isn't a compact camera, because of its high speed shooting settings
  • It can take up to forty 7 megapixel photos in one second, which is ridiculously fast
  • It's a really great feature to have for great action shots, because chances are out of forty you can find at least one really cool picture
  • The video shooting capabilities is what actually makes this camera something special
  • Not only does it shoot 720p HD video, it has some of the coolest slow motion options we've seen
  • If you drop down the quality to standard definition, you can shoot at 210 fps, which will make almost anything look like a John Woo movie
  • From there you can set it to 420 or even 1,000 fps, which is actually faster than the human eye
  • Keep in mind though that the video can get pretty dark, so we definitely recommend shooting in well lit conditions
  • The camera's easy to use and the high speed shooting feels natural and can yield some great photos
  • It's on the large side
  • Bottom line: if you're a photographer looking for a great deal on a really fast camera with the added perk of slow motion video, then this is it and if not, then it probably isn't for you
