Although Casio has pulled its Exilim digital cameras out of the North American market, the company still makes them for the rest of the world, alongside its watches and gadgets. It debut the 12-megapixel EX-100 at the recent CP+ camera show in Japan, a compact with a constant f/2.8 aperture, 28-300mm lens, 10.7x zoom, 1/1.7-inch back-illuminated CMOS, assignable function ring, and 3.5-inch LCD. A “premium bracketing” feature takes nine different exposure settings, in one shot. Advanced users can use the manual controls, burst shooting mode at 6 frames per second with autofocus, Full HD 1920 x 1080 recording, and raw image capture. The camera can also take 30 continuous shots before you press down the shutter button, helping you to avoid a missed moment. Other features include HDR exposure blending, ISO of up to 25,600, interval shooting, time-lapse, slow-motion (1,000 fps), electronic level, and a macro function that uses focus stacking and burst shooting to create a close-up image with great depth of field. The battery has a rating of 390 shots. Plus, there’s Wi-Fi for smartphone transfers and remote operation.

The camera goes on sale at the end of March for 89,000 yen, which is about $873 – pricey when there are cameras with stronger specs for less money. As you probably guessed it, it’s only available in Japan.
