Casio’s Exilim EX-FS10S is a compact digital camera designed for very high-speed shutter photography. With this feature, it’s a perfect application to help improve your golf swing.
Using a special burst mode, the camera captures 1000 video frames in one second. While onboard software’s detect your club, the position of your elbows, arms and head, and once you swing your shot the camera compares your swing with an ideal swing plane on the monitor.
Niches are being created by digital camera makers keen to stand out from the crowd – Nikon’s COOLPIX S100pj with built-in projector, and Sony’s panoramic PARTY SHOT camera are two good examples.
Casio’s offering is not only designed to help with your swing – the camera has a 9.1-megapixel sensor, 720p video recording at 30ps, a 3x optical zoom, and weight of 139g. It only has 32MB of onboard memory, but comes with the usual SDHC/ SD/ MMC plus/ MMC media slots for memory expansion.
The Casio Exilim EX-FS10S is priced at around $350, and is available currently in Japan only. (http://dc.casio.jp/products/ex_fs10s/swing.html)
