Casio High-Speed Exilim EX-FC100
Casio High-Speed Exilim EX-FC100 is a 9.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-inch LCD. This is probably the most fun camera, you may have never heard off. I am saying most fun camera because it is not your run of mill everyday average digital camera. It is more than a camera. I have used a more expensive cousin

of this camera which is great for shooting high speed videos. We got it for our lab’s experimental work involving slowing down things to 600-1000 frames per second. It served its purpose admirably.

Now this camera has it all. It is fairly compact (not too tiny though), has tonns of megapixels 5x zoom. It can take 720p HD videos, as well as high frame rate ultra slow motion videos. All for less than $250. You can check out the image quality of the pics uploaded by users at amazon. But beware it doesn’t have any manual controls, but then you won’t care for that in a camera this compact. I think this camera is worth buying just for its video capabilities alone. I am going to get hold of one for myself soon. Go grab one yourself. The fun part is guaranteed. Make sure you also get a huge SDHC card to go with it, because HD movie mode is going to eat up all the space.
