So–as some of you may already know–I actually have my bachelor’s degree in photography, not writing.
I’ll give you all a second here to spout off any snide comments you may have.
Now, because of my background and interest in photography I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to new techie photo… well, stuff. High megapixels thrill me… I’m just that kind of guy.
Of course, I admit that when it comes to cameras I’ve been known to be a pretty die-hard Canon guy, with an occasional venture into the world of Nikon. But the new Exilim High Speed series from Casio has me a little more than intrigued to try something new.
Sure, the Exilim has most of the same bells and whistles that many other digital cameras have. But it also features something no other camera companies are offering yet, and that’s an insanely high rate of frames per second.
Casio is boasting that this line of cameras can shoot up to 60 frames of photography per second, and video at a mind-blowing rate of 1,200 frames per second. To put it into perspective for you, most television and film is shot at a rate of 24 frames per second, so in one second of shooting you can get at least double the amount of frames.
The resulting images are moments that are essentially frozen in time.
So don’t grow up boring your kids with old pictures of your life; instead, whip out images made from this camera and show them a flip book of your younger years!
I think I’m gonna get my hands on one of these soon, so I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my own little photo experiments. In the meantime, click here to see exactly what kind of imagery and video these cameras are capable of, and then hop on over here and enter to win your very own EX-FC100 model.
I can’t wait to try it out. I’ve never seen my dog, Mr. Fabulous, take a crap at 60 frames per second, but I’m sure it’s gonna look awesome!
Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away,
