Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The EX-ZR100, Put More Camera in your hands

CASIO's EX-ZR100 gives you more features than you'd ever expect to find in such a small design. The ZR Series is our most capable compact series yet, powered by the advanced Exilim Engine HS. The EX-ZR100 features a back-illuminated CMOS sensor with shift stabilization, a 24MM wide-angle lens and High-Speed CS Shooting. The ZR Series delivers brilliant results no other camera can touch.



A New Take On Photographic Expression

Casio's exclusive HDR-Art creates a totally new artistic approach to photography that combines a burst of CS images recorded at the touch of the shutter button. The camera automatically processes the images, slightly adjusting the relative strength of contrast in local areas. The resulting image achieves a level of expression that normally cannot be realized without mounting the camera on a tripod, shooting a series of images with different exposures, and then processing the images on a computer.

High-Dynamic Range Technology

HDR (High-Dynamic Range) harnesses the High-Speed CS and high-speed large-volume image data processing capabilities of the new Exilim Engine HS to create a totally new type of digital imaging. The process combines information from a burst of multiple images and unites the most detailed portions of each image (taken at different exposures) for a beautiful, never-before-possible wide dynamic range.

Optical Zoom

Image Precision Beyond The Optical Zoom

Only Casio could find a way to pack a 12.5X optical zoom lens, a large 3.0-inch monitor and a CMOS shift stabilization mechanism into a slim, compact camera body. Equipped with a ultra-wide angle starting at 24mm (35mm film camera equivalent) all the way up to a 12.5X telephoto zoom (300mm). With Casio's High-Speed SR Zoom technology the EX-ZR100 extends the range to an amazing 25X (600mm) allowing the photographer to be ready for any scene!

Prerecord CS

Prerecord CS is based on the same concept as High-Speed Movie recording and ensures you never miss a moment of the action. A half press of the shutter button starts prerecording images to a continuously refreshed High-Speed CS buffer. Then a full press of the shutter button records buffer contents and real-time images.

Slide Panorama

Slide Panorama

Makes it easy to take panoramic images

If you want to capture the bigger picture, the Slide Panorama feature gives you extremely wide panorama images with a huge field of vision of up to 360 degrees. Simply by panning the camera across the scene with the shutter button pressed, Slide Panorama makes it easy to take panoramic images. And while the camera pans, moving objects and faces are recognized and the images adapted such that distortions and blurring are kept to a minimum.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great camera but questionable quality 28 Mar 2011
Colour Name:Black
I had a lot of expectations about this camera, and gave it a thorough workout. The HDR Art capability is excellent, and the high-speed video is a lot of fun. My issue: after two weeks, the lens stopped opening or closing properly, with "Lens Error" or "Retry Power On" messages. I tried the various fixes, but it's now looking like I have to send it back under warranty for repair. I've never had such problems with other cameras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Casio Exilim camera 13 Aug 2011
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I have previously owned two different Casio Exilim cameras (an EX-S3 (3MP) and an EX-S600 (6MP), and reading reviews of various cameras in this resolution and price range the only negative review I could find was about the interface; I can safely say the interface is pretty much the same. That said, I do like the interface (I'm familiar with it I guess) but I do occasionally find it hard to find the exact menu item required; given the number of functions the camera supports I guess it just takes a little getting used to.

In terms of functions, the camera takes some excellent photos in various modes and in a variety of lighting settings. The HDR mode has made a colleague jealous when compared to his high-end Canon SLR! Okay, I'm sure the Canon will beat it in almost all other regards, but the Exilim EX-ZR1000 camera costs 1/6th that of the Canon...

For those wanting the convenience of a small camera (i.e. no lugging around of big body cameras and/or SLR lenses), packed full of functionality, the ability to record movies (in full 1080p HD, although I have yet to do that) and spend under 250, then this camera is definitely the answer for you.

One last item to note is that, as with all high-speed / high-resolution cameras, a fast memory card is ESSENTIAL (and especially when using the Exilim's HDR and CS modes), and only a decent Class 10 SDHC (or better) memory card will do - anything less will not give you the best from this camera...

Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous cutting-edge digital camera great for taking pictures, but not so good for taking video clips (particularly slow motion). The 12.5x optical zoom is exceptional and coupled with this the Multi Frame SR Zoom (separate to the digital zoom) makes the overall zoom 25x with clarity. The new panorama function is quick and accurate.

The brilliant new HDR ART function is very addictive. It produces vibrant art-like photos of scenery and objects, often more interesting to look at when compared to the same shot taken in normal mode.

However the video-side of this new camera has some ups and downs. Casio have take a some steps forward and some back!

On the upside:-

1) In normal mode, you can take video clips AND zoom in at the same time whilst keeping focus. Previous cameras taking video clips forced you to choose the zoom level before starting the clip.

2) Also you can take multiple high-speed pictures whilst actually filming a video clip at the same time! I have had mixed success with this feature so far. For people situations (e.g. person receiving a birthday cake) the video and pictures were great. For fast moving situations (e.g. sport) the video was fine but the pictures were blurred.

On the downside:-

1) The video clips are now in MOV format rather than the better AVI format. Playback quality and editing, particular on a Windows PC, suffers as a result.

2) The slow motion video capability has been carelessly ruined. The most widely-used slow-motion toggle mode was 30-120 at 640x480 full screen size. This mode is MISSING from this new camera, which instead only has 30-240 at 432x320 available postage stamp size i.e. quality no good.

Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 Digital Camera - Black (12.1MP, 12.5x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD

I love this camera. I bought it for the high speed video feature. I have used it for studying the flapping wings of birds on take off and flight and also for tennis serves, golf swings and water splashing. I've used the zoom for filming surfers at Bondi from the beach with good results. the video format MOV is compressed unlike the avi of former models so you can take a very large number of video clips and stills - I used an 8G sd card for 3 weeks of active snapping on a hol in Australia and still had room for more. I usually take clips of 2 to 15 seconds and i took around 15 minutes of video total after editing.
The HDR feature is very useful and often obviates the need for flash. This setting takes several high speed images under different aperture and exposure times within a small fraction of a second and then the processor combines them into one picture with all areas of the picture showing good contrast.
The panorama setting produces up to full 360 degree strips by computing together many stills and the results are impressive.
I now choose this camera over my Panasonic 12x zoom compactdmc zs3.
The video clips and stills are in formats compatible with the iPhone and iPad so I was able to view them and to produce slide shows and films with iMovie each day on the trip.
The benefit of this camera over casio's earlier high speed model is that the output require less memory space. If you use the 30/240 fps setting in video quality from the menu setting you can switch from 30 to 240 whilst taking a clip. One review I saw before buying said this was not possible.
