Casio Japan announced a couple of pretty interesting digital cameras today. The EX-FH25 superzoom and EX-FC150 compact both feature back-light CMOS imaging sensors that should be able to deliver better signal-to-noise ratio than conventional front-lit units.
Both cameras sport 1/2.3” 10 megapixel sensors and are able to shoot video at up to 1000 FPS. Of course that number is only achievable in the miserly resolution of 224 x 64 pixels but VGA @ 120 FPS ain’t too bad either.
Casio EX-FH25 sports a 28-560mm (35mm equivalent) zoom lens with minimal aperture of F/2.8-4.5, while the more modestly sized EX-FC150 comes with 37-185mm (35mm equivalent) F/3.6-F4.5 lens.
Both cameras will start selling on 27th of November but there is no information about their pricing just yet. Admit it – you gotta fancy recording 1000fps video footage yourselves, wouldn’t you? I know, I would.
