CASIO EXILIM EX-FR100 REVIEW



Konnichiwa  Sorry for the long waiting. I knew you guys are so excited about my latest camera when I posted it on my Instagram. Yes, today post is about my current favorite camera - CASIO EXILIM EX-FR100 sponsored by my favourite camera brand CASIO.

I attend their launching and I already feel excited to review when I heard the director describe the camera and its functions. Moreover, my previous camera review on CASIO EXILIM ZR1000 already hits 50,000 view on YouTube. Thus, hopefully my latest camera review video can helps you guys with the info provided. Don't forget to check out the vlog at the end of the post.

CASIO EXILIM EX-FR100
So, what so special about this camera and why some fans already started to craving for it? The new EXILIM EX-FR100 outdoor camera, designed for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits and hands-free photo-taking and video recording. It is the follow-up to the highly successful EXILIM EX-FR10, which clinched the coveted Editor’s Choice: Innovation Award at the annual HWM + Hardwarezone.com Tech Awards earlier this year.

[ Detachable Design ]
Like its predecessor, the new EXILIM EX-FR100 features a rugged shock, water and dust resistant design that can be easily operated single-handedly. The FR100 retains the detachable design which enables users to attach the camera module to virtually anywhere via an assortment of aftermarket accessories, and use the controller remotely to capture truly unique angles of photography. Equipped with a new 16mm ultra wide-angle lens, the FR100 is fairly adept at taking selfies, large group photos, as well as landscape photography while traveling or during outdoor activities.

CASIO EX-FR100 Colour Available : Black, Yellow and White
There are 3 colour available - Black, Yellow and White. My personal choice would be yellow because black and white is too mainstream. The main reason why I had chosen yellow is because I love Bumblebee in Transformer. HAHAHA!  


[ Highlight Movie Function & Exilim Auto Transfer ]
If you always travel around, you can also look forward to sharing your holidays and travel experiences in the form of video montages via the Highlight Movie function. The Highlight Movie function is designed such that users do not require complicated software on their computers to create fun video montages of their activities or their holidays. It enables users to select both photos and videos from a specific day, and create a show-reel that can then be sent via Bluetooth® and the EXILIM Auto Transfer to the users’ smart device, which can then be uploaded onto social media.


[ Water Resistant ]

As I mentioned earlier, EXILIM EX-FR100 is water resistant. The camera and controller module are able to withstand drops of 1.7 meters.

[ Intelligent Interval Feature ]

One of the key highlights of the FR100 is the new Intelligent Interval feature, designed for enhanced hands-free shooting while on-the-go. Incorporating the EXILIM high-speed HS3 engine, sensing technology, and image analysis, Intelligent Interval automatically selects and saves photos taken during high-speed continuous shooting, while leaving those with too much blur and slant for the users to go through at their convenience later. This newfeature allows users to keep just the best shots while enjoying the moment as it happens. 

Casio has also launched a new accessories designed for the FR100, which customers can purchase based on their usage preferences. The marine case (EAM-5) is waterproof for depths of up to 20-meters, and is even backward compatible with the EXILIM EX-FR10. The antenna cable set (EAM-6) is a specialized underwater viewing device, from which users can view marine life from the surface. An LED ring flash attachment (EAM-7)*6 enables users to take images while in low-light conditions. Other accessories include the tripod mount (EAM-1), multi-angle clip (EAM-2) and a multi-angle belt clip (EAM-3). I will definitely purchase the LED Ring Flash Attachment soon because it's super attractive! 

[ Availability and Price ]
The new EXILIM EX-FR100 is now available at a recommended selling price of RM 2,149.00. Bundled accessories include a Carabineer Clip Attachment, Tripod Nut, Advance Selfie Stick and Action Camera Adapter.
