So far-So good

by Virgil on 5/14/2009

First off this is the first experiance I've had with I read many reviews (some good-some real bad), and was hesitant to try "Buy" as I'm am not a regular internet shopper. The price for the (digital camera)a Casio EX-FC100 was good so I thought I'd give it a shot. I had no problem with ordering or receiving my product...was just as smooth as advertised. As for the camera itself the operating instructions enclosed lack a lot of detail as well as the manuel on the disk. It is a good camera with a lot of shooting abilities that are really left up to trial and error. The only real problem I haven't quite figured out yet is upon taking the same picture with a flash one will turn out nice and bright the other dull and yellowish. Have given the battery plenty of time to recharge so flash strength will be the same. It seems to happen randomly with no rhyme or reason. The next call will be to Casio help desk...but so far so good. Great camera with a lot of USEFUL features.

Up to 30 fps at full resolution:
The EX-FC100 can shoot at an amazing 30 frames per second in High Speed Burst mode. This allows you to capture up to 30 images with a single press of the button. After the images have been taken you simply save the best pictures to capture the perfect moment.
High Speed recording before you press the button:
The EX-FC100 allows you to capture the perfect moment even if you press the button too late. With the amazing pre-record function, the camera begins taking pictures before you fully press the button. It works by storing up to 30 images in a buffer on the camera so that you ever miss the action.
DVD-quality video:
The EX-FC100 lets you shoot beautiful 1280 x 720-pixel HD movies at a rate of 30 frames per second. After your video is recorded you can view it by connecting your camera directly to a TV for big screen viewing. The EX-FC100 also comes with USB cables and software that allows you to view your HD films on your computer or to burn them to a DVD.
Video Capture at up to 1,000 fps:
The 1,000 frame-per-second High Speed Movie capabilities of the EX-FC100 is the next evolution of digital imaging. This feature allows you to easily shoot ultra slow-motion movies at speeds that were only available on super expensive, pro-level cameras.
Settings for 210 fps, 420 fps and variable 30-210 fps are included with the camera. While 30-210 fps is selected, you can toggle the movie recording speed between 30 fps and 210 fps, giving you the ability to record at the speed that's right for the moment.
Digital night shooting without blur:
The dark of night will no longer keep you from getting the right shot every time. Long exposure times combined with hand shake and other movement would normally result in a blurred scene. Using Casio's Exilim High-Speed Night Scene Best Shot Mode reduces blur and transforms your shot into the vivid image you always wanted.
Put a better face on your images with automatic Face Detection technology. Our camera adjusts instantly for optimum focus and background even if your subject is backlit or in front of a patterned backdrop. Moving targets? No problem. The camera will capture kids and pets on the go in the sharpest detail.
Shoot. Easy Upload. Share.:
Recording videos for YouTube has never been easier. Simply record videos with the YouTube Capture Mode, upload using Casio's YouTube Uploader software and share. It's that easy.
5x zoom combines with a CMOS shift stabilization for beautiful images even at high zoom factors where images are prone to blurring.
Get the most out of your shot with Casio's Exilim High-Speed Anti-Shake technology. The High-Speed Anti-Shake feature records multiple images and combines them into a single image, reducing the blur caused by shaky hands.
Super Clear LCD:
A massive, color LCD allows you to view your pictures and videos clearly on the back of the camera.
