Let's talk about the newly announced Casio EX-FC100. It is a point-and-shoot with 5x optical lens... and get this... a CMOS sensor.

I've been searching for years for a small pocket camera that takes decent pictures (especially in low light). I missed the Fuji FinePix F30 but hope for those types of results.

Do you think this camera with a CMOS sensor will take good, stable, varied light images with relatively low color aberration? I know it's not going to be close to my DSLR... I get that. I just hope for a decent pocket camera.

Specs can be found here on Casio's site (http://www.casio.com/news/content/56FEF8FB-6B1F-470C-9372-29FBD4B4C146)

Cheers! Happy New Year!

I think their FS10 has a CMOS sensor, also, but no IS. And they both can do photos at 30fps and video at 100fps. Impressive specs for $350 and $400. If they are good at low light I would think Casio would brag about that but I see no mention in their press releases.

Canon and Fuji are rumored to release CMOS compacts this Spring, also.

Even better! I would be thrilled to see Canon and Fuji CMOS compact cameras! If you hear anything further let me know.

I'm interested in these two Casio models as well. But doesn't Fujifilm have a new toy coming out later this year? Supposedly equipped with that Super CCD EXR that they say surpasses the F30/F31fd...

If it can surpass the F30/F31fd it's absolutely worth checking out. I'll be interested to see what new and cool cameras come from PMA in March. I think this might be a breakthrough year.

samples of the new fuji are up.... Not too impressive.

Has anyone noticed that Casio is dropping H.264/MPEG4 (for MJPEG) just as Panasonic and Canon are adding decent codecs?
