• Get you a rugged Casio EX-G1 camera (they're for sale)

    If only Casio’s new FH100 was rugged as well! Then I would only need one camera in my life. Well, maybe two. And another for backup. At any rate, the waterproof and angular EX-G1 is available for purchase now, from Amazon for $275 or everywhere else for $300. Read More

  • Casio's FH100: an incremental update to an already-excellent digital camera

    At today’s Casio press conference, I lost a lot of faith. In the space of a year, they seem to have done the following: -Added “artistic filters” to their cameras -Increased speed of image processing by ~20% -Decided 5x zoom wasn’t enough The result is the shockingly bad Digital Art Frame and the marginally improved FH100, successor to the FC100, my favorite… Read More

  • Casio goes back in time, introduces Photoshop filters built into photo frames

    Casio, I like you. I like you a lot. You make good cameras. You make lots of good things. But if you try to pass off a set of 8 built-in “artistic filters” as a revolution in digital imaging again, I will break up with you. I’m serious. You just talked for half an hour about cameras and photo frames that apply incredibly rudimentary filters to perfectly good pictures… Read More

  • The Casio EX-G1 is for the fashion-conscious outdoorsy types

    A quick glance at the Casio EX-G1 doesn’t revel that the camera is a rugged-type model. It’s just too good looking. But then you might start to notice that the dials are recessed and reinforced and the case seems like it could work underwater. (it can) It’s just that Casio managed to out a 12.1 MP ruggedized camera that’s actually a looker. Read More

  • Casio plans to enter the OLED game

    OLED can still pretty much be considered a thing of the future, but we’re getting closer to use the technology in our homes every month. Today, Casio Computer announced [JP] it has teamed up with Tokyo-based technology company Toppan Printing to develop and produce OLED panels. The new joint venture will start operations from April 2010, with both companies involved saying… Read More

  • Casio Puzzle watch: Awful pretty

    It may not do much – it’s basically a feature watch with stopwatch, alarm, and 24-hour time – but it’s nicely designed. This Casio, called the Poptone Cubic Puzzle Watch, comes in blue or black and has buttons stacked up, Tetris-style, on the bottom. Read More

  • Casio lets loose a couple budget Exilim cameras

    Casio is recently best-known for their Exilim FC100 and FS10, the compact cameras capable of shooting 1000FPS, among other things. I certainly loved the FC100 and recommend it every chance I get. But of course, Casio also makes regular old point-and-shoots, and now there are two more than there used to be. Read More

  • Review: Casio EXILIM 5.1MP camera phone

    Lets get a few details out of the way first. The Casio Exilim is one of the most expensive Verizon phones available at $279 with a 2-year agreement. Only the HTC Touch Diamond and Touch Pro cost more. Not only that, the Exilim is loaded with a dated OS and is rather bulky. The only selling point that this phone has is the 5.1MP camera, so that’s what I spent most of my time testing. I… Read More

  • Casio reboots the G-Shock DW6900 with the GW6900

    Reboots of anything can be hit or miss, but Casio hit this one out of the park with the GW6900 G-Shock. A twist on the iconic DW6900, the new kid on the block features non-stop, tough solar power and self-adjusting multi-band 6 atomic timekeeping. The non-stop solar tech is easy to figure out, but in case you’re unfamiliar with atomic timekeeping then here’s the lowdown from Casio. Read More

  • Review: Casio Exilim EX-FC100

    I use a DSLR and I love it, and while I appreciate what point-and-shoots do, I’ve never really wanted one. This is partly due to the superior picture-taking ability of a DSLR, but mostly it’s other cameras’ unimaginative feature lists. The latest cameras boast huge numbers of features which I would never use (smile shutter? more megapixels on a tiny sensor?), and… Read More

  • Casio's high-bursting EX-FS10 digital camera gets release date and high price in Japan

    Casio showcased its EX-FS10 first during the CES in January and today said [JP] that Japanese buyers will get the high-speed point and shoot on March 27 for $510, which is considerably higher than the US price (the EX-FS10 can be pre-ordered for $349 at Amazon, for example).
