Casio Exilim nailed Year 2007 Best Ultra Slim Digicams by JD Power and Associates

My brother-in-law came up to me last week and asked about my opinion on which brand he should look into for a digital compact camera. He likes something slim with best performance and pictures quality. (Don’t we all do? ) Heck, what do I know about p&s camera? I write about them but my DSLR set-up weights more than 10lb and that’s what I use most of the time. Of course, that wasn’t my response to my beloved bro but I promised him I will look into one.

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.

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

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.
