Casio Updates EX-FH20 Firmware, Already

After less than a month on the market, the EX-FH20 has a firmware update. Casio has made the update for its speedy new camera available on its website. The update will improve the performance of the EX-FH20′s memory card storage when shooting movies. A CLASS6 equivalent transfer speed memory card is recommended for the camera.

The firmware update is version 1.01, and Casio has posted a special warning for EXILIM owners updating their cameras:

If firmware update installation is interrupted due to low battery power, your camera will no longer be able to operate. Be sure to load a fresh set of new batteries into the camera before starting the firmware update installation procedure. Note that you perform firmware update at your own risk.

Casio EX-Z300′s Make-Up Mode

Casio’s announcement of additions to the Exilim line include the EX-Z300, as well as the EX-Z19, EX-Z85 and EX-Z250. The EX-Z300 is a 10.1 megapixel model with a 3-inch LCD display, along with a special feature: a “Make-Up” mode. This mode works like the cloning tool in Photoshop does: it blurs and smooths blemishes in the camera when you take a picture.

Samsung offers a similar mode on one of their newer compact cameras, called Picture Perfect. It seems likely that this sort of in-camera airbrushing will become popular, at least in consumer cameras. After all, who doesn’t want to look their best?

Casio EXILIM EX-F1 Review at Digital Camera Info


Digital Camera Info has posted a review of the 60fps Casio EX-F1.

Casio’s EXILIM EX-F1 promises features no digital camera on the market has offered before, and it delivers – with some reservations. The camera’s strongest suit is the option to shoot up to 60 full-res 6-megapixel images in a second. Combined with a sophisticated prerecord capability that continually captures images to a buffer when you half-press the shutter and saves the most recent ones to memory when push the shutter all the way, the tools you need to never miss another great shot are at hand. Image quality wasn’t great, but it’s perfectly acceptable for on-screen viewing or consumer-size prints.
