What's in the box?

Casio Exilim High Speed EX-FC100 comes in a pretty package, where the
back is characterized by specifications and at the front you will
notice beautiful pictures of the camera.

The box contains the following:

The contents of the box is very good with the standard within compact
cameras, and contain neither too much which is exactly what is required
in order to get started. However remember that the camera comes without
memory card, so you should buy memory card for camera.Casio Exilim High
Speed EX-FC100 uses Secure Digital memory (SD) card.

Design

When you first get Casio Exilim High Speed EX-FC100 by hand it feels
incredibly solid, there is a certain fell in the camera without being
heavy or clumsy. it is a very compact design, measuring just 99.8 x
58.5 x 22.6mm and weighing approximately 180g including battery and
memory card.We have a feeling that this is a good quality since it does
not feel like a plastic camera considering to the materials.The buttons
are also quite excellent and are logically placed and user
interactive.This means that anyone who has used an ordinary digital
camera before can easily operate the Casio Exilim High Speed EX-FC100
too.

Screen display 

It consists primarily of the big screen and buttons to control menu and
the dedicated video button. On top of the camera housing are shutter
button for controlling the zoom, and 30fps Still Image button ON / OFF,
and Slow Motion button. It may sound much but the Basic button
placement I experienced not to be confused by the relatively large
number of buttons.The resolution is somewhat limited in these modes, to
480 x 360, 224 x 168 and 224 x 64 pixels respectively. It also has a
variable frame rate option.

The camera is slightly larger than most compact cameras, but you get a
better grip, more advanced features and a camera in a nice quality.One
thing you will noticed when you turned the camera on that the boot time
is relatively long. The camera is ready with image on the LCD screen
with around 2.5 seconds from pressing the On switch. 

Control and functionality 

it's incredibly easy to operate camera buttons are logically placed and
the menus are manageable and easy to  navigate in. There are plenty of
opportunities to make fine tuning, but for those who dont want to be
confused with the advanced settings makes very easy without
adjustments.

On the back of the camera are the dedicated video button provided which
is also used for switching
