The Sony HX-1 can take 10fps. That is pretty fast.

Casio's EXILIM High Speed product line of digital cameras can capture still images at up to 40 fps, and video up to 1,000fps.

+1. I was going to recommend the same.

Emma the Fuji S200EXR takes a lot of fine tuning for good photos from what others have said...I think Sarah said she sent hers back as it's not to user friendly...

emma-

Yes, as LTZ noted I purchased a Fuji S-200EXR and returned it. The camera takes a whole lot of constant fine tuning (many manual adjustments!) to get good photos.

It was not that I lacked the photographic skill, it was just the camera. I am a professional digital camera instructor.

Thanks all! Now I am very much convinced that Casio's EXILIM High Speed product line camera is the one that I need. I am looking at FH25 as it has 20X zoom, but I still want somthing compact like FH100(10X zoom).

How would you compare these two cameras other than the zoom feature?
