Casio Unveils The FR200 To Challenge GoPro
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., has a new product in their digital camera range. Just unveiled in Malaysia is the “Exilim Outdoor Recorder” to record any impressive experience while enjoying outdoor activities or for motoring journalist like myself to take some interesting automotive pictures on a test drive.
Casio’s FR200 comes equipped with a fisheye lens and an LCD-screen sensor unit that will detach from the camera’s body in order to be reattached to different variations of the camera, or used on its own.
Casio’s camera can be broken up and assembled in a variety of different ways to help you capture all different types of shots and photography. If you are looking to pull of some stunning, expansive panoramic footage, flip the LCD-screen sensor down. For the best selfies, flip the same sensor up. Casio’s latest even lets you attach additional lenses from their FR100 and FR200 camera models in order to enable shooting of omni-directional 360-degree video footage. The camera will record video in 4K at 30fps and transmit it to your smartphone or other devices thanks to built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
As a tough adventure cam, Casio’s FR200 can stand up to some pretty harsh conditions. The camera is dust proof, freeze proof up, drop proof and waterproof to snorkeling depths only. Any sort of abuse this camera might encounter, it should be able to bounce back from it with relative ease. With a 4K movie shooting mode, we think that Casio is on the right path with this a winner on its hands.
Priced at RM2399.00 with an 18th month warranty, the FR200 comes with a 16GB memory card, a waterproof dry bag and an action camera adapter.
