Casio EX-F1 firmware V1.10

Casio America announced today it will make its Firmware Ver. 1.10 available on July 8 for its EXILIM Pro EX-F1 digital camera. Among the features unlocked by the update will be a unique Prerecord Movie function that will enable video recordings to start five seconds before users press the record button. The Prerecord function will work with all of the camera's movie modes, including 30 fps Standard, 300, 600 and 1200 fps High Speed and High Definition modes. Casio did not reveal how the Prerecord Movie function works.

The EXILIM Pro EX-F1 was first shown at CES in January before being released for public consumption in March and features a high-speed burst shooting mode rated at 60 images per second in 6-megapixel resolution. Its High Speed movie mode is able to record up to 1,200 frames per second. The 1920x1080 resolution HD video can be played back on HDTVs via an optional HDMI output. The camera has a 12x optical zoom and a pop-up flash that is able to 7 frames per second.

The EXILIM Pro EX-F1, available on Casio's online store and in major electronics retailers, is priced at $999.

    How it works

    I think it's quite clear how this thing works, which in turns makes it quite clear why Casio doesn't want us to know. It travels back in time, using some sort of high tech black magic. The whole thing is very creepy. Sure, today it only travels back five minutes, but what's to stop Casio from releasing a camcorder that knows what I did last summer?

    Funny. But...

    Likely it will be a lot simpler than that. The camera, while turned on is always recording. When you press record, it keeps the previous 5 seconds of recording and appends the live video.

    Simple, kinda cool. Not sure I would ever use it. But Hey, stranger things have happened.
