Casio Announces High-Speed Point-and-Shoots
Casio is applying it's high-speed technology to a new generation of consumer digicams. The company has announced this week at CES two new pocket-sized cameras which will be able to shoot 30 still frames per second in burst mode. Both cameras will be branded with Casio's consumer name, Exilim: the EX-FC100 and the EX-FS10.
Unlike traditional consumer pocket cams, these two new models can capture ultra-high speed action-shots, such as the precise moment a bat hits a ball, by recording dozens of frames in just a few moments. In playback mode, a review of the many shots looks rather like a slo-motion replay, and consumers can choose to save the most exciting frames.
William Heuer, Vice President of Digital Imaging for Casio America, said the new point-and-shoots capture so fast, even ultra-zoom and night shots are "virtually without blur."
