Casio has pioneered ultra high speed still frame rates (up to 1000 frames per second). Related to this, Casio has been a leader in the integration of HD video with still cameras. Previous Casio models with these features were long-zoom cameras. Now Casio has put some of this capability in pocket digicams.
CASIO INTRODUCES HIGH SPEED EXILIM DIGITAL CAMERAS OFFERING BURST SHOOTING IN THE SLIMMEST LOOK YET, PLUS INDUSTRY’S FIRST MODELS THAT CAN MAKE COMPOSITE MOVING IMAGES
Stylish digital cameras make great use of Casio’s high-speed digital technologies
LAS VEGAS, NV, JANUARY 8, 2009 — Casio America, Inc. and its parent company, Casio Computer Co., Ltd., released some exciting details about its upcoming digital camera models today. Soon to be released are the slim, compact High Speed EXILIM models EX-FS10 and EX-FC100 featuring high-speed burst shooting faster than an SLR camera, and the EXILIM models EX-Z400, EX-Z270, and EX-S12, which make the most of Casio’s high-speed image processing engine to enable users to cut and paste moving subjects onto still backgrounds.
Casio has been a pioneer in digital cameras for over ten years. The new models maintain Casio’s long tradition of innovation and creativity. In 1995, Casio introduced the QV-10, the world’s first consumer digital camera with an LCD monitor so users could view the images they had just taken. In 2002, the company released the EX-S1, a card-sized camera so thin that it could be carried anywhere. In 2008, Casio launched the highly anticipated EX-F1 and EX-FH20, boasting high-speed burst shooting capabilities to ensure that users would never miss a crucial moment again, not to mention the ability to record high-speed movies that capture motion too fast for the human eye to perceive.
Casio’s effective use of fast digital technologies to deliver unprecedented high-speed burst shooting and high-speed image processing of these new models has exceeded all expectations of what digital cameras should be able to accomplish. These stylish cameras are the first bold step in a major transformation of the traditional definition of the photograph, offering users entirely new ways of enjoying still and moving images.
