CES: Casio's new, thinner cameras offer high-speed shooting

Casio has unveiled a small, thin digital camera that features the same fast-shooting functions only available until now on much larger cameras in its line-up.

The EX-FS10, which was unveiled on Thursday at the International Consumer Electronics Show, is 16 millimeters thick but can manage burst-shooting at up to 30 frames per second and high-speed movies at up to 1,000 frames per second.

The high-speed picture mode allows for all sorts of neat tricks, such as the ability to shoot a bunch of pictures in close succession and then pick the best shot while the high-speed movie mode produces a super slow-motion effect when the video is played back at normal 30 frame per second speed.

A companion camera, the EX-FC100, also offers the functions and is slightly thicker at 22 millimeters. The FS10 has a 3X optical zoom while the larger body on the FC100 accommodates a 5X optical zoom.

Both cameras shoot at 9.1-megapixel resolution and will go on sale in the U.S. in March. The FS10 will cost US$350 and the FC100 will cost $400.

Casio launched the first cameras in its high-speed range at CES last year. The dramatic reduction in size over the last 12 months has been helped in part by miniaturization of components inside the camera and the combination of several chips into one. The circuit board inside the cameras is less than half the size of that in the original F1 model.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
