Summary: I was surprised that this little baby would take pics at 1000 FPS. WOW the things you can do with that. The 240 FPS is not so pixelated that it appears out of focus. I've taken pictures of hummingbirds at 480fps with superb results. I've had it now for 2 years and have not had any difficulty. Dealer was very responsive and I received this with what seemed expedited delivery time.
Summary: I've had this camera for a couple of years or so now, and I'm just getting around to writing a review on it. I've bought, sold, and kept a number of cameras over the past four years almost, and this is really the only camera I have had that I am definitely not letting go of. The reason is because it has such unique high speed options.
Excellent value for slow mo video, capturing stills, and panoramas
5 May 2013
Summary: Excellent value if you need/want any of the niche features such as slow motion high frames per second stills and panoramic. The excuse to but this was the kiddo's science fair project, to capture diet Coke and mento's fountains' heights (camera was mounted on a tripod). Did this great (even taught the kid a lessons in checking settings and listening to directions, LOL). We are pleased with photo quality and ease of use.
Summary: I purchased this camera primarily to have a relatively inexpensive high-speed camera in a point-and-shoot sized package. It has vastly exceeded my expectations in all categories.

Exilim - great for high-speed videos and lots more
6 January 2013
Summary: The camera arrived in perfect condition from TNT-Japan. I have used it for many tests. I have several "prosumer" Canon cameras, so I bought this Casio for one special purpose - high-speed videos (up to 1000 fps!). I found it is good for many other purposes, too. It has a great range of abilities. The high-speed videos have low resolution (224 x 64 at 1000 fps, 224 x 160 at 480 fps), but that's still great for a camera less than $300.
Summary: I had the earlier version for years and loved the 1000 fpm as well as the great pics. This one is even cooler with the panorama feature. I have no idea why Casio has dropped this line of cameras as they were the only ones affordable for amature photographers with the high speed video. I just hope they come out with another one that has the features...but this one will be my go to for a long time.
