Casio Computer Co., Ltd., brought in 2008 high-speed video to the consumer level with the release of the EXILIM Pro EX-F1 and the EX-FH20 digital camera.[R] The EX-F1 point-and-shoot camera can shoot up to 60 six-megapixel photos per second and capture movies at up to 1200 frames per second. All this, for a price of about US $1000 at the time of introduction and with an ease of operation that allows high school students to work in 10 minutes with the camera. The EX-FH20 is a more compact, more user-friendly, and cheaper high-speed camera that can still shoot up to 40 photos per second and capture up to 1000 fps. Yearly, new camera models appear and prices have gone down to about US $250-300 for a decent high-speed camera. For more details we refer to Casio's website.
