Casio Exilim Ex-FC100 Camera Review

This new shuttercase from Casio has a lot of the standard features of a nice camera, but perhaps the most intriguing is the focus they've put on capturing high speed events with a shutter that can take 30 shots in a second with anti-shake technology.

What You Need To Know

  • Just under an inch thick and weighs about 5 and a half ounces.
  • The lens and buttons protrude a bit, but it still fits easily in your pocket
  • The menus are simple to navigate with the directional pad
  • The slow-motion features like continuous shooting, high-speed video, and l-c-d slow motion are one-button shortcuts so you're not fiddling with the controls
  • We recorded this at 210 frames per second and it looks great
  • You can go all the way up to 1000 f-p-s, but the resolution is really low at that speed. Also, you'll need a lot of light to make slow motion work
  • Overall, though, continuous shooting and high speed video work really well!
  • Normal light (anything outdoors) looks good.
  • Colors are vibrant, but pictures might be a little blown out with a lot of light, or have a soft focus
  • Low light looks good too. The flash is underpowered at times, and this might cause a blur
  • Overall, we were pleased


  • $350
