Casio Exilim FR100 – 3.0″ LCD Separable Action Camera
Available via Geekbuying here, the super-versatile Casio Exilim FR100 is a durable, highly automated, feature-rich camera which is packed full of innovative technology that makes recording outdoor trips and adventures incredibly easy and convenient.
The Casio Exilim FR100 is a camera capable of capturing the moments you don’t see via the utilisation of slow motion footage. Essentially, the camera shoots footage at a rate of up to 240 frames per second, allowing for the capture of intricate details of the action which often happen too fast for the naked eye to fully process.
This innovative camera also auto-creates ‘full-scale movies’ from your recordings via ‘intelligently’ selecting frames from your footage in order to create a movie. Impressively, during this process, the camera utilises algorithms that incorporate professional storytelling techniques, thus resulting in a touch of refinement to the end production.
The camera also auto creates memorable picture collages and time-condensed movies. It also allows images to be sent automatically to your smartphone, as long as you have a constant connection to your smartphone.
It’s All In The Details
On top of the advanced automation, as one would expect, the Casio Exilim FR100 is an excellent camera in its own right. The device is a camera with full HD video capability and it produces clear, stable, wide-range images and video with minimal blur.
As well as providing full HD images, the camera provides adaptability and versatility as it provides various interval shooting options to fit any outdoor activity. Furthermore, the camera possesses a large, clear screen for a more enjoyable viewing experience.
The camera also cleverly ‘creates beautiful skin’ as it detects human faces during the recording process and subsequently automatically makes the skin look brighter and smoother in the recorded footage.
Clear, Stable Footage
The Casio Exilim FR100 creates photos with ease with five different ‘Art Shot’ modes, which allow the user to change the style of the pictures to allow one to express pictures with individual character. The camera can also shoot just fine in dark light conditions, as it possesses a bright F2.8 lens.
Most significantly, the 16mm Super-wide angle lens records clear images with minimal distortion, and the high speed continuous shutter shoots 30 frames per second to capture fast-moving subjects with excellent clarity.
This camera is arguably an improvement over the slightly less advanced Casio Exilim FR100, available via GeekBuying here, yet this camera too also provides an excellent super-wide angle lens, with clear, stable footage, and it does so at a slightly more affordable price point.
Built For Adventure
In terms of functionality, the Casio Exilim FR100 is not only a high quality camera, it is also well-suited to the great outdoors, just as it was designed to be.
The camera is tough and durable, possessing the ability to be dropped up to 1.7 metres (1.3 metres when joined), and it can withstand cold temperatures as low as -5 degrees celsius. As long as you don’t go for a winter trip to somewhere like Finland (where it has been known to hit -45 degrees celsius and lower!) your camera should work fine!
The camera’s versatile, moveable design also allows for the device to be equipped for secure, hands-free positioning and the camera is waterproof with a rating equivalent to IPX8. It is also dustproof equivalent to the IP6X rating. In layman’s terms, the camera will survive shooting sessions in the rain and dusty rucksacks will pose no problems!
The camera possesses tactile coating for added grip and feel, as well as knurled buttons and dimpled finish incorporated into the design, thus making the camera easy to hold. Furthermore, the camera’s coverglass also possesses antifouling coating for added protection.
Currently on sale for 449.99 USD (or 347.08 GBP / 409.76 EUR), the Casio Exilim FR100 is a quality outdoor camera, which provides versatility, great image quality and outdoor durability in abundance.
