Casio Ratchets up Speed, Dynamic Compositing for new Exilim Digital Cams

Along with a frame to turn your finest snaps into works of art, Casio remembered to include a few new shooters to fill your gallery, too. The company’s four latest Exilim digital cameras include a high-speed cam, and three that feature the dynamic compositing tech it introduced last year at CES (and that we were less than impressed with in our recent review of the Z280).

Like the old EX-FC100 and the EX-FS10, Casio’s new EX-FH100 can shoot at up to 1,000 frames per second after cranking down to low resolution. As a more traditional shooter, it offers a 10.1-megapixel CMOS sensor hiding behind 24mm glass with 10x zoom.

The EX-H15, EX-Z200, EX-Z550 all offer 14.1-megapixel sensors, Exilim 5.0 image processors, HD movie capability and an Art Shot function apparently culled from the same tech powering Casio’s new frame. The top-tier H15 and Z2000 both offer high-resolution 3.0-inch screens, the latter with 5x zoom and the former with 10x. The stripped-down Z550 offers a smaller 2.7-inch screen, 4x zoom, and no Art Shot, but retains HD movie capability.

How to transfer photos from an iPhone to a computer
The Apple iPhone 15 Plus's gallery app.

As the old saying goes, the best camera is the one you always have with you. If you're like most iPhone users, that means you've likely amassed a sizeable collection of photos on your device. However, while Apple's Photos app is a great way to manage and view your photo library, it's never a good idea to keep all your eggs in one basket. After all, suffering a lost or broken iPhone is painful enough without also losing all your precious digital memories in the process.

Even if you're backing up your iPhone to iCloud or your computer, it's a good idea to keep your photos backed up separately. After all, opening a folder or a photo management app is a much easier way to get at your photos than trying to extract them from an iCloud or iTunes/Finder backup, which requires either restoring them to another iPhone or relying on special software tools.

Right before Google I/O 2024, Google showed off the latest Pixel device, the Google Pixel 8a. This is the latest offering from the Pixel A-series, which is a more budget-friendly Pixel for those who don’t need all the bells and whistles of the flagship Pixel 8 or 8 Pro.

The Pixel 8a features a new design with more rounded corners and a matte-finish back. It packs Google’s latest silicon, the Tensor G3, but the camera hardware remains unchanged from its predecessor, the Pixel 7a.
