Casio upgrading Exilim models to EX-FC150 and EX-FH25

Casio has two new systems lined up for its Exilim series: the EX-FC150 and EX-FH25. Their upgrades from the EX-FC100 and EX-FH20, respectively, are very subtle, mainly some new model codes and backlit CMOS sensors, plus a few other tweaks.

The EX-FH25 (pictured above) with its shoots at a max resolution of 3,456 × 2,592, has 20x optical zoom, a 3-inch LCD display, all just like the FH20. But video has been downgraded from FH20’s video mode of 1080/60p to a 720/30p motion JPEG. The slight upgrades include a wider ISO range (100-32000) and a 10.1-megapixel resolution (vs. the old 9.1).

There are more noticeable improvements in the pocket-sized EX-FC150 (pictured below). The new Casio point-and-shoot is getting a bump up to a 10-megapixel back-lit CMOS sensor, 5x optical zoom and a wider ISO range too (100-3200), but it will be staying still with a 2.7-inch LCD screen. it will also get a bit splashier, being available in black, red and gold. The highlight is the the FC150's speed, being able to shoot at 1000 fps at a resolution of 224x64.

Neither have official price tags yet (although Akihabara News is reporting approximately $560 for the FH25), but both will be available for sale on Black Friday (November 27).
