October 2008 saw Japan's biggest electronics show: Ceatec. More than 196,000 visitors to Ceatec got a chance to see the best of the Japanese electronics industry, including some exciting prototypes of devices that are still a long way from hitting the market.
Casio Exilim EX-FH20
Casio's EX-FH20 is an update on the F1 that was launched earlier this year. It has a 9Mp resolution and 20x optical zoom. Like the F1, the new camera can take super slow-motion video and perform a host of neat tricks thanks to a burst shooting mode.
For example, the camera can be set to take up to 40 images at 7Mp resolution per second, which means you can get it to record a series of pictures either side of the shutter button being pressed. That means that if you miss a perfect picture moment, the camera will likely still capture it thanks to these extra pictures.
The fast shutter also allows video to be recorded at up to 1,000 frames per second and then achieve a super-slow motion effect when played back at the normal 30 frames per second. It will launch in the US and Europe in October and will cost around £350.
