Summary: Overall, our experience with the Casio Exilim EX-FH100 was a very pleasant one and we had lots of fun using it. It performed well in bright and overcast conditions, and it even managed to capture some good-looking fireworks shots. Its image quality when you view the images at their full size isn't as high quality as Sony's Cybershot DSC-WX5 3D digital camera, for example, and that's a drawback considering the Casio's relatively high asking price.
Excerpt: When it comes to point & shoot cameras, small does not necessarily equate to good. The same goes for price. The Casio EX-FH100 ($349) , a replacement for last year’s popular EX-FC100, features a wide-angle 24mm 10x optical zoom f3.2-5.7, 10 megapixel high sensitivity backlit sensor, 3″ LCD, 40 fps continuous shooting @ 9 megapixels, and 1280×720 video capture up to a mind-boggling 1,000 fps (not crystal clear, but still cool).
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.
Cons: Slow to save raw files; no autofocus or zoom in movie mode; average lens quality.
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. Other features include a 24 - 240 mm lens with image stabilization, a 3-inch LCD display, full manual controls with RAW format support, tons of scene modes, and HDMI output.
Excerpt: (1 items) Though the Casio EX-FH100 pocket megazoom camera ($350 as of June 1, 2010) offers slick, curvy looks to frame its 10X-optical-zoom lens (24mm to 240mm), the main attraction for shutterbugs is its unique high-speed shooting mode. It's also a good all-purpose camera, thanks to its image quality and long battery life.
Pros: Superb battery life, Sharp, well-exposed images, Raw shooting mode, High-speed shooting mode for stills and video
Cons: Takes time when saving raw and high-speed shots, Laggy autofocus, Noisy lens motors, Limited f-stop options in aperture priority
Excerpt: 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.

Excerpt: Casio’s new FH100 has a 24mm wideangle 10x optical zoom, 720p HD video and can even shoot lower resolution high-speed video at up to 1000 frames per second. But is it actually any good in use? The...
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.
Summary: Using the Exilim EX-FH100’s high-speed continuous shooting mode is great fun and it enables users to capture images that would not normally be possible with a compact camera.
Chromatic aberration and distortion are well controlled, especially bearing in mind the wide focal-length span.
Most images captured at ISO 100 or 200 are suitable for making A3 prints, but some shots taken at higher sensitivity settings are best kept to A4 or smaller.
