CES is now almost two weeks away but with this year’s big announcements about affordable 3D cameras and tablets, it still feels as relevant as ever. One camera that seemed to be under almost everyone’s radar but had some very promising abilities was Casio’s EX-ZR100. This camera, is able to shoot at 30fps in Full HD mode, 240fps in 432×320, 480fps in 224×160, and 100fps in 224×64 as well as shooting stills up to 12 MP. The exciting thing about this camera is not just that it can shoot at 1000fps, but that this ability exists at all for cheap cameras. Yes, the 224×64 resolution is probably too small to use on screen, but with faster processors constantly coming off the line, it can only be a matter of time before we see it in full HD resolution as well. This is why we went to check out Casio’s newest offering at CES to see if it lived up to its hype. Check out the video below to see if for yourself! The camera is available for $299.
