Action Selfies for Everyone (CASIO EX-FR10 REVIEW SUB-GALLERY)
Not Sponsored by Red Bull
(in this case, the right thing)
“It is an action cam…it just isn’t for the kind of action that Action Cameras have become known for. Targeting outdoor adventurers who prefer to hike up mountains rather than base jump off them, the EX-FR10 was designed to be dead-easy to use. CASIO knew that the average Taro and Sachiko Yamada weren’t going to spend time in an editing suite cutting together an action cam movie. They want to take photos and videos of their weekend away and post them on social media well before they have to go to work the following Monday.”
This was very well demonstrated by CASIO Mountain Media Adventure attendee Ms. Erika Handa, who generously provided us with some of her shots from that excursion. Sure, she works for CASIO, but in truth she’s far more representative of a civilian than Mr. Moodley the Executive-Level Camera Nerd Reviewer guy.
As such, to round out our coverage and provide a handful of semi-real-world examples, we were happy to share her selfies and groupies. And so...
Here’s the the CASIO EX-FR10:
...and Ms. Handa’s shots follow in the in-line gallery below. Further, for an example of what Nayalan regarded as quite possibly the camera’s killer app, CASIO's Auto-Highlight Feature, check out his user interface demo and resulting auto-highlighted video after the photos.
Automatically assembled highlight video from last week's review:
“The camera takes a selection of media stored on the memory card and automatically compiles a video slideshow. You can choose among 5 pre-installed musical tunes or go musicless and add your own track later on a PC/smartphone editing platform or through YouTube’s Creator options. It’s simple and it’s fantastic because it removes the biggest hurdle to action camera ownership: compiling the photos and videos you shoot.”
