The F1 is over two years old. While the slow-motion video technology is impressive, it's way too expensive to consider buying. If high-speed video is a must, take a look at the Casio FH100, which comes in a much smaller package and takes better still photos as well. Here's what we had to say about the F1 when it was released in 2008:
A truly groundbreaking piece of machinery, the Casio Exilim EX-F1 offers high speed video recording at up to 1200 frames per second for extreme slow motion shots. It further allows for smooth HD video recording at 1080i and 720p. Its 6-megapixel sensor is paired with a 12x optical zoom lens, and sensor-shift image stabilization helps to produce clear, sharp images. Full manual control over exposure and focus will be a great draw for serious amateur still photographers as well.
