Summary: My Casio EX-FC100 review reveals a digital camera that is one of those models that excels in a few areas, primarily high-speed video and continuous-shot still imaging, which will make it a great camera for those needing those features.
Pros: Offers great high-speed image capture, Offers strong high-speed video capture, Stylish model, Good LCD screen, 5X optical zoom lens is above average
Cons: Close-up image quality could be better, Price is a little high for point and shoot model
Summary: Casio's right to keep pushing its High-Speed Continuous Shutter technology, because it offers something new and unique in the camera world. The Exilim EX-FC100, though, lacks the pocketability of the Exilim EX-FS10 or the zoom range and speed of the Exilim Pro EX-FH20, and it could really do with a...
Pros: Ultra-high-speed shooting modes; can shoot high-definition movies.
Cons: Lacks a wideangle zoom; rather expensive; modest resolution.
Excerpt: After the release of Casio’s EX-FH20 digital camera, it was only a matter of time until the company trickled down the technology of high-speed shooting and HD video capture to a pocketable point-and-shoot.
Summary: At $349, Casio's Exilim EX-FC100 is a solid high-end point-and-shoot but with a couple of drawbacks. Macro mode is a pain to access, and this camera is on the heavy side, even though it has a generous 5X zoom.
Conclusion: The Casio Exilim EX-FC100 has some impressive features that we haven't seen on other compact point-and-shoot cameras, but a high price and so-so image quality prevent it from being a must-have.
Pros: 5X optical zoom lens. Captures photos before shutter button is pressed. Records video in 720p30 HD and in slow motion. Integrated Eye-Fi support helps preserve battery life.
Cons: Pricey. Images are less sharp than those of competitively priced cameras. Purple fringing in high-contrast areas. Boots slowly.
Summary: Digital cameras have come a long way very quickly, with phenomenal capabilities and incredible technological features being expected from even the most mundane models now. The Casio EXILIM EX-FC100 fits the mold of an advanced digital camera , but it is far from a basic gadget.
Summary: With the EX-FC100, Casio takes what was formerly a novel feature in much larger, prosumer-oriented cameras and puts it in a small, relatively affordable package for consumers. One practical use, which the folks at Casio pointed out to me, is the demand for the high-speed video and image capture in a...
Excerpt: Casio's Exilim EX-FC100 is a unique camera. While most of its functions can be found on many other point-and-shoot models, the EX-FC100 can shoot short bursts of images for capturing fast-moving objects and people.
Excerpt: This is the third model in Casio's High Speed range of cameras. Whereas the EX-F1 and EX-FH20 are both super-zoom models, the EX-FC100 fits into the slender Exilim range. It's well specified for a compact camera, with a 5x zoom, optical image stabilisation and 720p HD video capture.
