For all the functionality baked into today's cameras, they general limit the user to being behind the lens. Casio has announced a new modular camera that avoids this limitation. The Exilim EX-FR10 is designed so that the controller and lens units can be separated, allowing for more versatile shots.
Casio has announced a selection of new cameras which, it's claimed, were designed to appeal to women. How do you make a woman-friendly camera, you ask? Well, Casio seems to be of the opinion that offering a range of colors (obviously including pink), textured finishes and buttons which can be pressed even if you have long nails, will do the job.
capabilities of modern cameras means photographers no longer have to go through the boring task of jotting down the location of a picture on the back of photos. Unfortunately, interference when taking pictures indoors or even outside amongst a forest of skyscrapers can render the geotagging feature inoperative. The latest model to join Casio’s EXILIM
Hi-Zoom lineup, the EX-H20G, overcomes this problem by using a Hybrid GPS system that combines GPS with a three-way accelerometer and direction sensor to track a user’s last known satellite-acquired position against map data stored in the camera’s memory. It then checks every 10 minutes until it can reconnect to a satellite signal.
Europe notes, "the perfect moment pays no attention to ideal photo conditions." The company has released a couple of new cameras which aim to crash through common barriers that stand in the way of good photos, such as moving objects in the distance or poor lighting conditions. Wide-angle lenses and mechanical image stabilization have been included on both new additions, the EX-H5 benefiting from 10x optical zoom and the EX-FH25 combining high speed technology with a new "high sensitivity CMOS sensor" for quality shots.

line of shock-resistant watches have been adorning the wrists of outdoorsy types since the release of the first G-Shock branded watch in 1983. The company extended the rugged specifications of the G-Shock line to mobile phones with the release of the G’zOne durable, water-resistant mobile phone in 2000, and has now further extended the brand to compact digital cameras with the release of the EX-G1 shock-resistant, waterproof, dustproof digital camera – the first in the company’s new EXILIM G line.
Those who like a camera phone to pack some serious specs will be very pleased to hear of Casio’s upcoming release of the Exilim CA003, featuring a 12.2MP camera with autofocus and a 28mm wide angle lens with 3X optical zoom. The phone will boast a 3.3” WVGA OLED
screen as well as GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM radio. It supports microSDHC cards up to 16GB and will be available in four fashion colors including “champagne gold”.
Casio impressed everyone last year by displaying their high speed technology in the EX-F1
prosumer digital cameras. The high speed technology enabled functions like high burst shooting and high speed video, allowing users to capture images and video faster than the eye can see - providing an ultra slow motion effect. Now, at CES 2009, Casio has announced that it has squished these functions into a compact camera with its new EXILIM models, the EX-FS10 and the EX-FC100. By bringing the art of high speed photography into a convenient pocket sized form, Casio has once again brought digital camera standards to a new level. Both cameras are capable of up to a 30 shot-per-second burst rate (at 6.0 megapixel resolution) and high-speed movies at a maximum of 1000 fps. Regular images can be captured at 9.1 megapixels.
Casio has introduced a second high-speed EXILIM model to complement the EX-F1
announced earlier this year. The EXILIM EX-FH20 doesn't quite match its formidable sibling in terms of shooting rates, but at a lower price point and still achieving bursts of 40 fps plus high speed movie recording at up to 1,000 fps, it could well appeal to those looking to shoot fast-moving action while still keeping with an eye on their bank accounts.
January 9, 2008, Casio has announced plans to release five new Exilim digital cameras
including the high-speed Pro EX-F1 which boasts a super fast burst shooting rate of 60 frames per second - currently the the world's fastest according to Casio.
