Casio High Speed EXILIM EX-FH20 is one of the fastest on the market

We’ve covered Casio’s EXILIM series before, and they have just recently announced their new HIGH SPEED EXILIM series, which includes the Pro EX-F1. That camera was released earlier this year, and it has to its credit as being the “world’s fastest digital camera”.
The EX-F1 can shoot at 60fps and record high speed movies at 1,200 fps. Now Casio has recently unveiled the EX-FH20, a camera that is capable of shooting 40fps and can record video footage at 1,000 fps. Of course, you don’t have to record video that fast, as the HD movie function is capable of 30fps at a resolution of 1,280 x 720.
The company gave the EX-FH20 a compact body that is 27% smaller than the EX-F1, and is also 28% lighter. The EX-FH20 has 9.1 megapixels, and a wide angle zoom lens of 20X.
The EX-FH20 is also capable of high speed burst shooting of 7 megapixel images that are adjustable up to 40fps. That means that this camera is capable of prerecording 40 still images that somehow will be there before a user hits the shutter button.
It also has a High Speed Anti-Shake function and Night Scene setting, which makes pictures as perfect as possible. The Casio ELIXIM EX-FH20 is slated to be in stores in next month for about $600.
