VIDEO REVIEW OF CASIO EX FH20 USEFUL IN SPORTS AND SCIENCE BURST MODE CONTINUOUS SHOOTING DIGITAL CAMERAS PART TWO
Can digital cameras capture action faster than a speeding bullet? As I discussed in the previous Purple Medical Blog post, many things in life and nature happen too fast for the naked eye or the naked camera lens to see. Yet there are cameras that can capture that fraction of a second when a balloon bursts or a drop splashes. The so called burst mode or continuous capture picture shoot. You've seen those pictures in magazines. If you frequently use words like "chromatic aberration" you probably know some dSLRs that can take burst mode pictures but how about a camera like that for "the rest of us"? Consumer digital cameras have not in general been able to take many shots in burst mode in a fraction of a second because of limitations of the microprocessor and memory in the digital camera. Casio had rolled out the EX F1, a digital camera that could take 60 frames a second and had a 6 megapixel larger size sensor along with the ability to shoot HD video. But alas, like many great ideas it appears that it was not ready for prime time. Now Casio is back with the Ex FH20, with a smaller sensor yet more megapixels. The FH20 can take 40 frames for second at 7.1 megapixels each.

The FH20 can also take video at high speed. Why they put a smaller sensor in the FH 20 than the F1 I don't know. A bigger sensor generally means a less noisy image. To get an idea of the tricks the FH20 can do watch this video review of the Casio FH 20 from a site called Videopia. Soon we will also discuss the Fuji S8100fd and the Fuji 2000HD which both have a continuous shooting mode but no where near as extensive as the Casio EX F1 or the Casio Ex FH20.
