Cant see 36 being achieved in short-term with sd class6, but 24-28ie 1080p/60 is certainly possible?

I will have a f1 though as soon as it hits uk shore, apparently they may firmware up the 720p to 60fps, distinctly possible, plus fine tune the raw stills.

Also be nice for them to add 1080p30, maybe they could be lobbyed to try a 1080p50/60 option?



Casio have really stepped up with this one so may be nxious to psuh the envelope further, so need it be a success.

Have you heard of anything about 720p50/60 being added? This is one of the main things stopping me from buying the camera.

I think the 1080p50/60 idea is good as well.

I think we are getting used to the idea that it is a $500 camera for $1000 with some high speed gimmickry. It really needs the 50p and 60p modes running at least twice the data-rate. Unfortunately the latitude and signal to noise ratio seems 4 to 8 stops less than what I would want for $1000 on a still camera. I also would like a 2/3rds to four thirds sensor for that price. However, I like the 720p30 video, given the data-rate (under 9mb/s). Does a good job of consumer grade solid state h264 video. I wish the sub $500 cameras could get their acts together that much.

Could I email you privately to discuss something?

Wayne,

I can mail you yes, what's your address?

Note, All I know is that a guy on dpreview, kizu, works for Casio and he seems to think Casio can be lobbyed into adding new firmware features.

Eg raw is only upto iso200? I think the cam will be fine at200+, say min 800, so he has gone back and asked, supposed to be coming back to us.

Also I suggested a 720p/60 as perSanyo, so I think he has asked them also on that.

Collectively we could campain Casio in adding the features and Istill don't know why they didnt go for a 1080p.

Altogether the iq is about there for me,different league to Sanyo with stills, plus exposure lock etc would be wonderful to have in a capable p&s, only down side is size,lot bigger than hd1000! but then a camera that looks like a cam and shoots hd video has its advantages, lot less conspicuous than hd1000 in some respects!

Private message sent.

I hope you can lobby them to include 720/1080p50. Hopefully the internal processor can handle it. I would even settle for jpeg compressed 2:1-5:1 (lower compression the better) versions of these to card or through USB.

I have done a comparison between footage from this camera and a new $200 camera. Both 720p60, and different 1080i. In the 720p60 footage the Casio wins, by some. The $200 dollar camera does surprisingly well.

In what is like a sick joke. I was wondering why I hadn't seen any F1/s here. So I asked a girl at the store, and she informed me that the distributor had decoded not to distribute Casio anymore in Australia. They have a gold mien product then they dump them .
