400-CAM010N looks like a normal compact digital camera at first sight, but it can take super detailed photos of fine details, such as that of material fibers, that a regular digital camera cannot do.

Casio developed the EX-100PRO digital camera to meet the needs of university/corporate researchers and sports professionals. It features a function that synchronizes up to 7 EX-100PRO cameras and can control all of them through an Android tablet that has the dedicated application, which can be very helpful for the process of experiment analysis at laboratories or for analysis of complicated motion mechanics.
