Excerpt: The Casio Exilim EX-FH100 ($349) is a feature-packed compact ultra zoom camera. At its core is a 10 Megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS sensor that allows for high speed continuous shooting, video frame rates as high as 1000 fps (at low resolutions), and HD movie recording.
Summary: The Casio Exilim EX-FH100's amazing high-speed shooting features make it unique among compact superzooms, but that's pretty much its only trick. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10, for example, costs about the same but has a better zoom, and is much better for shooting 720p movies.
Pros: Good size, build quality and finish; high-speed shooting features; manual focus and exposure controls; useful 10x zoom.
Cons: Slow to save raw files; no autofocus or zoom in movie mode; average lens quality.
Summary: Casio's new Exilim EX-FH100 features some groundbreaking features that will allow you to capture images and videos in ways that other digicams cannot. The FH100 features a 10-Megapixel back illuminated CMOS imaging sensor, 10x wide optical zoom lens, dedicated video record button, 720p HD movies,...

Summary: Feature-packed though the EX-FH100 is, and with great features such as both HD and high-speed movie, the whole package is just slightly short of the mark. The overall resulting image quality isn’t bright, punchy or sharp enough at any of the ISO settings and the 24mm wideangle lens is soft towards...
Pros: feature-packed, HD movie, 24-240mm zoom range
Cons: low resolution high-speed movie, low LCD resolution, menu design, Raw shooting at ISO 100-200 only
Excerpt: Casio has updated the popular EX-FC100 (last year’s model) with the EX-FH100 , which adds a little more resolution and doubles the zoom magnification from 5x to 10x. The FH100 also features the popular high frame rate feature found in the FC100.
Casio Exilim EX-FH100 review: A compact digital camera with the ability to shoot high-speed video
Good Gear Guide.au
1 October 2011
Conclusion: The Casio Exilim EX-FH100 is capable of capturing reasonably well defined photos, but it's not an excellent still image camera, merely a quite good one. Its best feature is the ability to shoot high-speed video, allowing you to capture scenes in slow motion.
Pros: 240fps video shooting is a lot of fun, images possess reasonable quality, programmable buttons you can assign your most used functions to, nice body
Cons: 1000fps shooting isn't realistically usable, images don't have excellent definition when viewed at their full size, on-screen menu is ugly
Excerpt: There’s no shortage of compact ultra-zoom cameras available, and if the price of this model puts you off it’s worth looking at the cheaper Casio EX-H5. The Casio FH100’s 10x zoom lens is relatively modest but, at £225, this is no budget model. Fortunately, it has other tricks up its sleeve.
