Casio EX-ZR100 Digital Camera Review

We took the Casio ZR100 to task, seeing if it offers more than just swing-saving slow motion video.

Debuting at around $300, the EX-ZR100 is Casio's latest flagship high-speed camera, capable of 1000FPS video recording (albeit heavily letterboxed), and up to 40 FPS still image shooting. The camera also sports a 12.5x optical zoom ratio, as well as a back-illuminated 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor and 1080/30p video recording. We found the camera heavily processed many of its images in its default setting, but the end result was still often fairly accurate images, with little to no noise across the 100-3200 ISO range. We found the images were a tad oversharpened in-camera, and Casio could seriously do with a menu re-design, but the ZR100 strikes us as a worthy leader for Casio's 2011 high-speed lineup.
