Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 review

£699 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Casio

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 shoots full-resolution bursts at up to 60 frames per second.

The Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 shoots full-resolution bursts at up to 60 frames per second.

The Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 has a solid feel, with mostly sensible controls and feedback, but we often hit the three buttons to the left of the lens by mistake. We like that you can configure the ring around the lens to adjust the focus, zoom, or frame rate. We usually hate electronic viewfinders, but we frequently found myself using the tiny screen to compose shots accurately, despite its lack of realism.

The sensor's 6Mp resolution may seem low these days, but it's a reasonable compromise to achieve the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F's high frame rates. Image quality stood up very well to models with 8 megapixels or more in our lab tests, showing fine exposure and low levels of distortion. The chunky lithium ion cell pumped out enough power to cope with all 500 of our battery test shots. That's important because you can use a lot of juice just waiting for the right moment, let alone shooting many shots in succession.

At £699, the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 isn't cheap. But for subjects such as sports and wildlife photography, where high frame rates and HD video stand out, it could be worth every penny.

    Casio Exilim EX-FC100

    The Casio Exilim EX-FC100 is a unique compact camera - boasting a 30fps burst mode.

  • Casio Exilim EX-FH100 review

    Casio Exilim EX-FH100

    Although the Casio EX-FH100 pocket megazoom camera offers slick, curvy looks to frame its 10X-optical-zoom lens (24mm to 240mm), the main attraction for shutterbugs is its unique high-speed shooting mode.

  • Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z250 review

    Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z250

    Like many point-and-shoot cameras on the market today, Casio's Exilim Zoom EX-Z250 is full of features.

  • Casio Exilim EX-H10 review

    Casio Exilim EX-H10

    Although the pocket megazoom category of digital cameras is still brand-new, the good-looking Casio Exilim EX-H10 claims a subset of that subcategory all by itself. This compact, 10X-optical-zoom model emphasizes fun, beginner-friendly features rather than advanced controls.
