The Casio Exilim EX-F1 High Speed Camera is great, but is best at shooting in rapid bursts. This is not an all around camera, and doesn’t do everything I need, but is a nice addition to my Cannon T2i / 550d which is my everyday work horse. A lot of customers have been writing that it’s great for sport shots.
Technically its equipped with 6-megapixels, with 1/1.8-inch high-speed CMOS sensor and it can shoot up to 60 fps. Comes with 12x optical zoom with CMOS shift stabilization you can also attach a light guard that fix’s onto the front. It has a 2.8-inch LCD and it’s a wide viewing angle. There is high-speed movie capability which gets up to 1200 fps. It captures images to SD/SDHC memory cards which are not included though. The camera weighs 10 pounds.
The camera comes with a 150 page manual. So many options, you can program it to remember your most favorable settings. You can set the flash on or off and it will stay like that. Image stabilizer works well and has great stability. The slow motion (high speed) video is very good at 300fps. At the higher speeds (600 and 1200fps), it does take a lot of light to get good results and the resolution is OK, but not great.The CS prerecord mode is very good. You can get 60 full resolution frames before you press the shutter. It stores them in internal memory and saves after you press the shutter. So you can see what happened just before (up to 60 fps, programmable) With a 16Gbyte SD card, about $25, you can save over 4500 full resolution pictures.
If you have the money and need a great camera get this one!
