Summary: This is a great camera for the $$. We were looking at spending $500+ but weren't really ready for that. This camera takes great pictures and we love it. It is big and bulky but to get the zoom quality you need for kids it's the only way to go.
Summary: Ok, so I begin by saying I know almost nothing about photography. I am a neophyte who started taking pictures in December 2009 (when I bought this camera). But I tell you, between the Casio Exilim EX-FH20 9.1 MP Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom and 3-Inch LCD (Black) and Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 , there doesn't seem to be anything I cannot do, and have a lot of fun doing it. The 40 FPS bursts let me capture things I could never get one frame at a time.
Summary: I bought this camera and received it a little while ago. First off I would like to state that I am an amatuer with this type of camera. SO if I state a problem that would appear to be an obvious common occurance then keep that in mind. So far the camera is great. I like all the features and have tried each feature that is available on it. The shutter speed is great and the high speed video is also good.
Summary: I got this camera mostly for the high speed function. It does very well and I would recommend it to anyone that wants it for either it's 20x optical zoom or the high speed function. It's not a great camera, it's bulky and uses 4 AA's, but for high speed, it really does a great job for the money assuming you're in daylight. Even with bright artificial lighting you'll get about nothing in HS mode.
Summary: I bought this camera for videoing the golf swing and it performs as I expected it would. The high speed isn't as clear as you see on tv but then the camera doesn't cost $30,000 either! The stills are excellent and the high speed still feature is very fun with the pace of watching and taking photos of grand children.
Summary: This is a good camera,excellent pics and the zoom is fantastic.I haven't had time to explore the camera's full potential yet,but I like what I have been able to achieve so far. The only set back has been that I bought the camera second hand and the review stated that it had its cables.When it arrived it had a cable with it that had nothing to do with the camera,I shall now have to try and locate the cable that connects the camera to the computer.
