Summary: I bought this camera to record runners and play back in slow motion in order to correct form. It is fantastic for this purpose. The screen is large enough that I can play back instantly and let the athlete see and make corrections.
Summary: I crew on a number of dragrace cars and needed a high speed camera to video the car off the starting line. I shot my first video with it and when playing it back on the TV everyone was amazed at the quality. It will save my teams countless hours.
Summary: The pictures this camera takes are comparable to most other small point and shoot digital cameras in this price range. I also own a Sony and Canon Powershot. The Canon is my personal favorite for image quality, because I like the color balance the best.
Summary: Having owned two previous Casio Exilim cameras, I am quite familiar with the Exilim series and have been a real proponent of their work for years. This camera is no exception. Great optics, great firmware, and a mind blowing number of options.
Summary: this is the best camera i have bought. it takes exellent photos and amazing slow motion videos,( 1000fps is really cool but you need a lot of light. it is also kinda low resolution)and i love the exposure time in the photos AND videos. you can set it at a max of 1/40,000 !! really cool!
Okay, but not as good as it predecessor (EX-FC100)

Summary: I "upgraded" to this camera because of reviews that raved about what a great camera this is, and how it supposedly "improves" upon the FC100 by taking 40 fps, instead of "only" 30 fps, and that it allegedly takes much better low-light shots. Unfortunately, this purchase was a mistake.
Summary: I really wanted to love this camera. I wanted a fast, responsive camera that I could carry in my pocket, leaving my Pentax DSLR at home. This camera seemed as though it would do it. I kept it for about a week, playing with the still imager settings and the video. In the end I sent it back to Amazon.
Summary: So I purchased the Ex-F150 with high hopes. And so far have been very pleased with the results. When push comes to shove, the fc150 is a point and shoot, so you cannot expect the quality to be the same as its mother camera the fc100 slr.
