On the front panel - a traditional set of elements. Most of the space is occupied by the lens. On the left above it is a flash and an autofocus illuminator diode. The flash is far enough away from the optical axis of the lens, you can hope for a minimum number of portraits with red eyes. There is a microphone hole under the lens.

On the top panel there is a power key, a shutter button combined with a zoom lever, a button that activates high-speed shooting, and a button for activating the slow mode.

Most of the controls are on the back of the camera. Here is the usual five-way joystick, four function keys and a video recording mode switch.

The bottom panel has a camera tripod mount, speaker holes, and a battery cover. The elements are arranged according to the mind. Nest in the center. Considering the sheer weight of the camera, this makes sense. The battery cover along the line of the right hand stop during shooting.

On the left side panel there is a connector for connecting the camera to a PC, a little higher there is an eyelet for attaching a lace to a hand. On the right side panel there is also a hook. This allows the use of a neck strap, which may be more convenient for many users.

In general, the design of the camera can be called successful. Interesting and quite bright, it does not go against the ergonomics indicators. The camera is easy to use, it fits well in the hand, and all the really necessary settings are within walking distance.

Controls and menus

The control logic of the EX-FC100 is typical for the manufacturer. On the right side of the screen, a narrow strip contains the parameters highlighted by the manufacturer as the most relevant during the shooting process. All remaining settings can be made in the menu.

The very logic of building the menu is clear and leaves no questions. All settings are divided into three categories: "recording", "quality" and "settings".

It is noteworthy that one of the relevant functions can be set by pressing the joystick horizontally: exposure metering, self-timer and face recognition.

The size of the camera made it possible not to skimp on the number of keys. Due to this, the ability to switch between shooting and viewing mode is successfully implemented. Video recording is implemented by a separate switch. In one position - HD quality, in the other - high-speed shooting up to 1000 frames per second.

The logic of organizing the camera menu is simple and clear without instructions. The menu construction scheme is thus perfected by the manufacturer on a variety of models.

Functional components and features

Matrix

The camera uses a 1/2.3-inch CCD. The full resolution is 10.29 megapixels, of which 9.10 megapixels are effective. This is an average or slightly less than average resolution for mid-range cameras. The image is recorded in JPEG format downsampled by six stops.

A number of standard values ​​represent the ISO setting. The choice of the user: automatic mode, 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1600. The amount of noise is within the normal range at values ​​up to 400.

Image stabilization

The camera has a two-level vibration reduction system. The main, mechanical, is implemented by shifting the matrix. The electronic stabilization system can be activated in photo and video mode.

It should be noted that the stabilization system copes with its task. The number of blurry shots is extremely small.

Lens

The undoubted advantage of the compact is a five-fold optical zoom. For other parameters, the optics has average characteristics. The focal length of the lens is 6.4 - 32.0 mm, which in terms of 35 mm equivalent is 37 - 185 mm. Lens aperture - f / 3.6-4.5.

Focus

The EX-FC100 is equipped with a standard set of focus modes. In addition to automatic and macro modes, the camera has: panoramic focus, face focus, infinity focus and manual focus. Manual focus is very convenient. It is a slider that changes the focus point as it moves. The display at this moment shows a very close fragment of the subject, allowing you to evaluate the accuracy of focusing.

In auto mode, the camera focuses starting at 40 cm. When macro mode is activated, the distance is reduced to 3 cm. Such macro performance deserves attention, very few compacts are able to focus from such a short distance.

Display

The EX-FC100 uses a 2.7-inch TFT monitor with a resolution of 230K pixels. This is quite enough for comfortable viewing of finished images.

The display is the only viewfinder of the camera, and in conditions of intense daylight, its brightness is still not always enough.

Via the menu, you can adjust the brightness of the display and the amount of information displayed on the display.

Flash

There are four flash firing modes: automatic firing, red-eye protection mode, forced on and off. Through the settings, you can increase or decrease the intensity of the flash.

Memory

Traditionally, the camera uses SD, SDHC memory cards. If necessary, you can use the built-in memory. In the camera it is about 32 MB.

Power and PC sync

The camera is powered by a compact NP-40 lithium-ion battery. Its capacity is 1300 mAh. A rechargeable battery will last approximately 300 shots (CIPA). It should be noted that this is an excellent indicator for a digital compact.

The camera is recognized by the system without additional software.

Shooting and processing modes

Like most of the manufacturer's cameras, the EX-FC100 boasts an extensive range of shooting modes. For more convenient access, the manufacturer even moved them to a separate “BS” key. All plot programs have a bright graphical implementation, the icon clearly demonstrates for which case the mode is most appropriate. In total, there are 21 scene programs in the chamber.

The "slow" mode is noteworthy. When this mode is activated, the camera starts to continuously record images to the buffer and play them back at a slow speed. The backup content contains up to 3 seconds of pre-recorded images. Pressing the shutter key selects the most successful frame. One of eight playback speeds is set through the menu.

The mode came out really unusual. A good opportunity to capture a portrait from the best angle or a significant moment in a sport, game of children or animals. However, the quality of such a picture is unpredictable due to possible inaccuracies in focusing, and the resolution of such a picture is no more than 6 megapixels.

It is also worth noting separately the high-speed shooting mode (30 frames per second), placed on a separate key on the body. The mode will be of interest to users who are close to sports topics. The resolution of each such image is about 1.2 megapixels. There is no need to speak about the quality of elaboration of such an image, but using the mode can help capture unique moments that would be extremely difficult to capture in normal shooting mode.

In the process of shooting through the menu, you can adjust the color filter, sharpness, saturation and contrast of the image.

Processing modes do not include artistic effects or filters. In the picture, you can adjust the white balance, brightness, you can change the size and position, you can protect and print.

Video recording

Video recording capabilities are another highlight of camera positioning. Switch has two Envelope Bag Personality Clutch Purse Leather High Quality mode: high-speed shooting and shooting in HD (1280x720 pixels) quality. At a minimum resolution of 224x64, the camera can record at 1000 frames per second. As the resolution increases, the number of frames decreases. Using high-speed shooting, you can capture processes invisible to the human eye - the breaking of water drops, the movement of each particle in the pouring sand, the elements of a complex sports trick.

Conclusions

Casio Exilim EX-FC100 is a classic representative of digital compacts with increased functionality. The camera capabilities will be sufficient for most users. The camera has an expressive design and good ergonomics. The quality of the images is at a decent level - the image is bright and sharp, the number of blurry shots is small. The EX-FC100 can be recommended to users who are close to sports, as the camera is replete with high-speed and thematic photo and video shooting modes. The cost of the device in the network is about 11,800 rubles.

Review of the Casio Exilim EX-FC100 camera

Detailed functionality is a typical quality for Casio digital compacts in the middle price segment. In addition to the standard set, the manufacturer integrates additional features and unusual modes into new items, guided by the desire to add “the very zest” that will push a potential buyer to purchase. Today we are considering another novelty of the manufacturer - Casio Exilim EX-FC100. The camera is positioned as a functional compact, equipped with advanced video recording capabilities and several additional shooting modes, the use of which will facilitate the process and improve the quality of the result. We have to figure out these, and not only, possibilities.

Look and Design

Despite its neat shape, the camera does not pretend to be compact. The case is well felt both in weight and in volume. Due to this, the camera fits comfortably in the hand, and numerous controls are sufficiently removed from each other. The metal body of the camera has a matte milky tint and is decorated with numerous black inserts. It turned out tough, contrasting and expressive. The build quality is not satisfactory, all the elements are tightly fitted to each other, there is no backlash. I was pleased with the quality of implementation even of the battery cover. I would like to pay attention to this separately, since the indicated place is traditionally weak in the assembly of digital compacts. Let's take a closer look at the location of the camera controls.
