Casio Exilim EX-Z8 Rears Its Tiny Head

Casio Exilim EX-Z8 Rears Its Tiny Head

Casio is at it again, adding a new model to their Zoom series of digital cameras. This one has 8.1MP and a few other features.

The 8.1MP gets a little help from the Exilim Enging 2.0 and the Anti-Shake DSP technologies. There is a 2.6 inch viewing screen and a 3x optical zoom.

Casio Exilim, Fastest Digital Camera in the World, So Far

Casio Exilim, Fastest Digital Camera in the World, So Far

So Casio released the specs, and apparently some hi res shots, but most of the specs can be learned just from the photos. Apparently its destined for the Exilim line.

What makes it the fastest digital camera? Its amazing ability to capture still images at a lightning quick 60 full resolution shots per second, hopefully that means there is a burst mode as I can’t push a button 60 times in one second. It can also capture video at VGA res at 300 frames per second!

History of Casio Portable Synths

History of Casio Portable Synths

Years ago, like with many small children, my parents encouraged me to go to piano lessons.  At the time it was a frustrating and occasionally annoying addition to my pre-teen schedule; it's only now that I look back and think "thank goodness".  Because if I didn't have those basic keyboard skills then I would have to work even harder to appreciate these battery-powered synths by Casio, who have been making them since the days when they cost $30,000 and came as part of an entire music-making computer system.

Tomás Mulcahy has put together a fantastic piece on the history and development of the Casio range, which is well worth a read if you're turned on by any of today's portable marvels like the Korg MicroKorg and Novation K-Station.
