Casio's latest Exilim high-speed camera can sync with up to seven others

The EX-100Pro does synchronized high-speed shooting for around US$1,000

Casio's Exilim EX-100PRO can synchronize up to seven high-speed cameras.

Casio's Exilim EX-100PRO can synchronize up to seven high-speed cameras.

If you want to really see how good or bad your golf swing is, Casio's latest digital camera can control seven cameras shooting 60 images per second.

Designed with the help of a baseball pitching machine maker, the Exilim EX100-Pro is designed for sports, business users and experimental researchers. But it can show anyone extremely high-speed action shots or video.

Up to seven EX-100Pros can be linked via wireless LAN and controlled via an Android tablet running Casio's SynchroShot app. That synchronization feature only works with other EX-100Pros, Casio said, and allows synchronized recording of a scene from multiple points of view.

The camera has a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 3.5-inch LCD monitor that can swivel, and a 10.7 times optical zoom lens with aperture of F2.8.

The lens is an improvement over Casio's first high-speed camera, the Exilim Pro EX-F1, launched in 2008, and can take better photos in low light, according to the company.

"It is still being used by many users who are university researchers, corporate engineers and athletes among others," a Casio spokeswoman said via email.

"And we've had requests from those users that it would be more useful if they could shoot from different angles simultaneously for their research and analytical purposes."

The EX100-Pro goes on sale in Japan in mid-January for ¥120,000 (US$1,010), which is relatively cheap for a synchronized high-speed camera.

Casio's previous high-speed shooter, the EX-100, has similar specs but without the sync function. It sells for around $655 on Amazon.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
