Summary: Camera works great EXCEPT there is no shutter speed on the video so, it has 240 fps, but without the shutter speed, filmimg golf swings is not clear. Sad they left that out on the video. The camera has the shutter speed on the camera picture taking but not on the video capture.
Summary: Felt cheap and had loose battery door. Image quality wasn't as good as the comparable Canon PowerShot SX230 HS. The high speed of this camera isn't as clear as the SX230 HS. Although this camera could do much higher fps, the resolution got so small, and quality was so grainy, it wasn't nearly as nice. Returned this product with no problems. Good seller.
Summary: I am a life long Canon Camera user and I wanted to try something different. The Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 camera was recommended to me by a reputable camera shop, but I bought it at Amazon, rather than from them, because of the better price. Anyway, it takes great pictures in daylight or dim daylight, where they come out so clear and sharp. But in artificial light, they come out yellow and fuzzy.
Ok, but a critical flaw in HS video mode compared to prior model

Summary: I purchased this camera with the primary intention of filming golf swings in high speed video for analysis. There's a lot to like about the camera in this role - compact, lightweight, decent battery life, and easy controls for quickly capturing many videos. Overall quality of the videos themselves are similar to the prior Casio models in this class.
Good video and image quality but image stabilization a problem

Summary: Pros 1. Compact. Packs 12.5x optical zoom in a 1.1" body, competitors are on 1.3" or 1.4" bodies (though Nikon S9100 packs an 18x optical zoom in that slightly larger form factor). 2. Fast operations 3. Good low light pictures - a definite improvement from previous Exilims 4. Good video - again a definite improvement from previous Exilims 5. Panorama mode better than the Sony Cybershot DSC HX9V. 6.
Summary: Loved the high speed video, HDR and swipe panorama feature, didn't like the HDR-ART feature (it is worthless). The video quality is excellent. Didn't like the low light pictures as it comes quite grainy.
Summary: I sought out a camera to replace my stolen EX-FH100. The first place I went was to Casio. My primary goal was to find a good HD camera which did video in slow motion. The camera seems well built enough. The menu is intuitive and the layout is good. I returned the camera because Casio limited the slow motion capabilities (now it requires you drop the resolution for certain frame rates).
It is rather limited in its high speed video mode.

Summary: In its 1,000 frames per second mode it is rather limited. The quality is poor and you view a strip of pictures a few pixels wide. Much better at 480 frames per second or anything approaching more normal recording speeds for videos. I wanted to record high speed water droplets to study their behaviour. I think this sort of study requires a much bigger investments, but in other respects the camera is very useable.
Summary: Bought on Amazon but turns out it was via a third party - I'm always wary when that happens. Anyway, camera when it worked was ok, not very good for gigs though. Battery wouldn't recharge and unsurprisingly the Seller was most unhelpful! Contacted Casio who have been great in repairing the fault. In hindsight I don't think I'd buy this camera again, there are definitely better ones on the maket in the same price range.
Summary: I had a lot of expectations about this camera, and gave it a thorough workout. The HDR Art capability is excellent, and the high-speed video is a lot of fun. My issue: after two weeks, the lens stopped opening or closing properly, with "Lens Error" or "Retry Power On" messages. I tried the various fixes, but it's now looking like I have to send it back under warranty for repair. I've never had such problems with other cameras.
