42nd Street Photo Reviews Casio EX-FH20
The advanced point and shoot camera from Casio, the FH20 is a 9 Megapixel mega zoom camera sporting a 20x zoom lens. It’s a pretty typical long zoom camera with the ability to shoot 40 frames per second and capture video in 1,000 frames per second. At this speed, you can catch movement that you don’t really see with the naked eye.
The fast shooting allows you to capture some shots you cannot possibly get with another non Digital SLR cameras. Having said that, this shooting comes at a cost. The 40 fps is only available at a 7 Megapixel resolution, and a high speed video is captured at a realy small size.
The camera is powered by 4 AA batteries which run out quickly if you use the high speed shooting a lot. With the 40 fps you will fill up a memory card pretty fast, so it’s best to keep a couple of SD or SDHC cards handy.
Since image quality is nearly OK for a mega zoom camera, 42nd Street Photo recommends this camera to those who want the speeding features which work really well.
So, to summarize the Casio EX-FH20 highlights, here they are:
- High Speed Burst Mode
- High Speed and HD Movies
- Flash Continuous Shooting
- Face Detection
- Pre-record Continuous Shutter (CS)
- Built-in and Expandable memory (31.9 MB of internal memory so you can start shooting right away)
Your videos and photos (outdoor and high speed) will look great if you have good lighting. Set the high speed and get all the action you want!
