Casio EX-F1: Slow Motion For Under $1K

Posted by Scott

These videos were all taken with the amazing Casio Exilim EX-F1 camera which features a variable high speed shooting mode for some serious slow-mo action at up to 1200 FPS. While the name Casio doesn’t exactly bring to mind quality output, you can’t argue with that kind of power for under $1000. Being able to get footage like this would open doors to a whole world of possibilities for aspiring film makers.

There are some more user generated video examples here and here. Casio has some official video examples at their page for the EX-F1, but some of the links are broken. This reminds me of the Canon HV20, a dedicated HD video camera which also has a high speed shooting mode but outputs much higher quality video.

Thanks Kirk for the heads up on this one.

killer video footage.
scott, by the way you put “open a doors”
i dont know if you meant “open doors” or “open a door”
either way, its the same message ahaha.
also, if it were at all interesting to you, i use a 35mm Canon Rebel, but it is a film camera, not a digital. if you were to recommend a Canon or Nikon digital, what would it be?

My photography is here
and i would love some feedback
