Summary: We bought this camera before a safari trip and overall are very happy with it. If I could change two things, it would be that there is less of a delay between snapping the photo and the photo being taken and that it was better quality at night. I think these two problems, however, are pretty consistent with most of the cameras I have owned.
Casio EX-FH100 10.1MP High Speed Digital Camera with 10x Ultra Wide Angle Zoom with CMOS Shift Image Stabilization and 3.0 inch
18 March 2013
Summary: This camera was sold by Amazon so I must thank them for a great camera. In fact this is the best camera I ever bought. It does everything I think of doing. Fast frame, slow frame, night shooting, zoom shooting, macro and the battery goes a very long time. This Casio is worth every penny.
Summary: I bought the camera to use for improving my golf swing using the high speed capability. It was easy to use and I was able to see for myself the issue I needed to resolve. It also is handy for hd movies if you are not interested in movie resolutions.
Excerpt: The Casio Customer service here in Taiwan is the biggest problem I have besides the camera breaking down. 1st time it broke the lens wouldn't retract and I took it in and they said "there was some condensation build up in the lens.... did you take it to the beach or somewhere humid? Because that's bad for the camera". Long story short they replaced the lens unit and in the drawer it went. About 6 months later, I took the camera out and the lens as stuck again.
Manual Shutter Speed Control - Great for analyzing golf swings or anything.

Summary: Purchased this camera to film golf swing in slow-mo. This camera is the only one that I could find that can accomplish this at this price point. What is different about this camera from newer Casio models at this price point is that, from what I can tell, newer models no longer provide MANUAL control over shutter speed. This is essential for analyzing the golf swing in slow-mo.
