Casio EX-FH20 is on sale at best buy now for around $425

I saw samples of shots and video on someone's blog that made me want one.

Since you're not worried about interchangeable lenses it opens it up for more than just Canon or Nikon

Not the best image quality compared to real SLR's but beats most point and shoots images hands down.


This is why I'd recommend it:


shoot 40 full sized 10mp frames per second (regular motion pictures usually max out at 33fps)

Also has an HD Video mode that takes super slow motion video in HD

20x optical zoom and all the other shit really high end point and shoots have.

Yo watson......




Thats the exact camera I purchased at BestBuy for $370; extremely durable. I have a few photos floating around between the B/W Photography and The Photography thread. Does a fair job of capturing what you want even before editing.


Have you looked into the features?

I'll reuse this thread/same question.


Finally have the funds for a nice camera (opt to pay $500-700). Been doing some research - Rebel t1i seems pretty ideal but I really could do without the video component.


Someone recommended I buy a cheaper camera but a better lens.

Any suggestions?

I would look into getting a 40d then if you dont mind not having video. Photo-wise it is superior to the new 60d that was just released minus the ability to shoot at ridiculously high iso. It has a metal body and shoots almost 7fps sequences.

I desperately needed a new point and shoot my 5 year old 6.1mp non image stabilized pocket was no longer cutting it, actually it never really did. This cam is awesome for what I paid and I really like the wide angle lens on it I can get shots that I could never do with a point and shoot.


I recommend buying one of these to anyone currently in the market.
