Summary: I bought this camera to record my shooting sessions with airrifles. This unit is like that used by several other airgunners and works very well in that mode. The stills that I took turned out very well. The operators manual was in Chinese, which I don't read or write! A link to the Casio web site garnered the English PDF Owners manual. I am still learning how to take advantage of all the features this camera has to offer.
Summary: Bought this to take pictures of my golf swing to send to my coach. The best thing is that it is compact (I can carry it in my golf bag) and it takes slow motion pictures over 1000 fps. The only draw back is the faster the frame rate the smaller the video picture is.
Summary: My only problem was that everything was set to Japanese even the instruction book! But no worries down loaded the English instructions and was in business. Great camera ! I bought an older mode several years ago in Japan and it is still going strong.
Summary: The interface is easy to understand and navigate... once I switched to English. Start up time is very quick, under 2 seconds and it is ready to go. The size of the camera is perfect for me, fits right in my hand and is not heavy. The battery life in my opinion is excellent. I'm still running on the initial charge. HDR and HDR Art modes great. Great camera for the price.
Great quality pictures at this price, and the high speed video is a blast.

Summary: The ability to do aperture and shutter priority pictures, and manual mode is almost unheard of in cameras at this price. The HDR Art mode is pretty cool too, as is the SR zoom. It also supports Eye-Fi SDHC cards to share without transferring to a computer first. The main reason I bought this model is for the high speed video, and it does disappoint a bit due to the poor quality at higher frame rates.
Summary: This is the best electronic device I have purchased for a long time. I have had the cannon powershot and Pansonic Lumix camera's which are meant to be decent point and shoot devices but they are sooooo.... slow taking the shot that have we missed most of the spontaneous fun times when our children have been playing. There is nothing more mood killing for a child than have the parent say 3, 2, 1 ........ before the camera is ready to take one shot.
