Summary: Pleasantly surprised. I bought the EX-F1 specifically to get 600 and 1200 fps "video". It does that very well. I have used to obtain videos and data for a customer and it met all of my expectations. However, what surprised me was how much fun the camera is to play around with. I used to do a lot of "serious photography" back in the mid 80s... mostly B&W. I've got two camera bags filled with Nikon bodies and lenses.
Summary: I am a teaching professional and use for my golf pupils. It is the best camera available. It is far superior to any other camera. I currently have the fh 20, which is a great camera, but does not compare to this model. I do not know why Casio stop making these cameras?????
Summary: This camera is just plain fun. It may not be of the highest quality that some may like, but it sure is fun. I think most people can figure out how to work it with out a manual. I have seen a lot of reviews both good and bad. Overall I have had much fun using it and If your thinking of getting it for the high speed purpose of it, well then after a little experimenting, I'm sure you will have fun with it also.
Summary: The Casio Exilim EX-F1 has become a legend! Its high-speed video capability (1,200 frames per second) far exceeds any other camera in its price range. This camera is no longer produced likely due to some patent/copyright infringement. It originally sold new for $999, now to touch a new never-used EX-F1 you could pay upwards of $1,400.
Summary: I use this camera to capture the golf swing in 300fps @1/2000 mode. This allows me to analyze the golf swing in great detail. This is only for the stout of heart as it will reveal all the flaws of your perfect golf swing. Too bad it has gone out of sight price wise. I understand they quit manufacturing it. Picture wise it does not compete with my Sony A700 but then I didn't get it to take photographs. The HD video works good too.
Summary: This is the best camera on the planet! :))) u have great quality photos in amazing speed, awesome quality video plus i have professional mic hoked up and i'm recording great videos and interviews with it (stock stereo mic is great too). high speed shooting is a great fun and u can shoot very beautiful videos and it will never get old because possibilities are endless so i have 1080p, 740p standard and slow motion video options, picture quality is amazing with great marco...
Summary: I have to say this camera blew me away! The many features it has for the price is amazing. And the speed! Wow! Set multi pic's, press the button and in one second 60 pic's to save! It takes longer to save them than it does to take them. Highly recommend this camera.
Summary: The Casio Exlim EX-F1 camera has the unique ability among consummer cameras of both high speed video (300 - 1000 frames per second at typical video resolution) and high speed, 6 mega pixel resolution at 60 frames per second for one second. If you need such speeds and good resolution provided by a low cost camera, this one fits the bill. If you do not need high speed, you will find many other lower cost cameras with otherwise adequate capabilities.
