Casio Exilim Pro EX F1 HD Camera

[Best Syndication] The 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week has unveiled a slew of tempting technologies and advancements that make me want to upgrade, and this digital camera by Casio is one to anticipate when it is expected to arrive on store shelve in March 2008.

It is expected to retail at $999.99. Casio is calling this the fastest camera, taking up to 60 frames of photos per second at full 1920 x 1080 HD. But the camera will snap even faster photos of 1200 frames per second if you go to the resolution of 336 x 96.

This super fast photography will help to capture movements that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get with other cameras. Frame rate capture can be set anywhere from 1 fps up to 60 fps.

The cameral has a continous recording of up to 60 images per second fro a maximum of 60 images that are in the camera’s memory buffer. This way, if you push the button a little late, you can still get the best photo. It sure looks like it is fool proof way of taking good pictures.

There is more with the movie capability. It is able to record high speed movie footage that is too fast for the human eye to comprehend. There is recording speed setting of 300 fps, 600 fps, and 1,200 fps. When you play these high frame rates back as a movie it will be an ultra slow motion playback. There is a movie button that makes quick switch from taking still photos to recording video.

There is full High Definition movie recording abilities built in with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at a rate of 60 fields per second.
