New cameras do more than you would expect
While the biggest photography news—especially in pro and semi-pro gear--will come later this month at the PMA show, several big camera makers are unleashing new models that redefine expectations of what a point-and-shoots can do.
The showstopper is certainly Casios Exilim EX-F1 supercam. With a smokin processor and a boatload of high-speed buffer memory, this $1000 prosumer model can shoot 60 six-megapixel still photos per second or from 300 to 1200 frames of video per second.
Casio also brought out the EX-S10—what they say is the worlds skinniest 10-megapixel camera (at least for this week.) Other claims to fame: high-contrast image captures of up to 1000:1 and auto shutter which automatically snaps a picture when the camera and subject are steady so the photo wont be blurry.
