Overpriced camera, with interesting capabilities. Problems: bugs === - Flash does not work in BS Move In/Out CS. - While in movie mode, it is impossible to use manual focus nor switch focus modes. - No focus in HS video mode. - In M mode + other than standart photography mode slowest shutter speed is 1/60s. Event if 1fps selected. Why can't I select 1s Shutter duration? Or select 0.1fps and 10s duration? - It would be great to have mode, in which slowest shutter speed in auto mode could be ...

A ton of fun and very impressive features, both picture and video wise for someone who started his professional career with a twin lens Rollei. And it has stood up well for a long time, no problems. Must admit I spent more time with the user manual for this camera than I have spent with any other user manual. Well worth it in the end.

You do realize that you need more then 5 stop more light to film at 1,000 frames per second (1/2000th sec) then the normal 24 fps (1/50th second). Do you take photos of your cats in your living room at 1/2000th of a second?!

This is a very fun camera. The high speed 60fps and 300-1200fps movie modes are endlessly useful for wildlife photography, which is what I use it for. Problems: -iso above 400 has far too much noise -focusing can be a bit slow -need bright light for high speed movies -1080p movies can not be edited on my mac

I tried the F1 for a while and wasn´t impressed. This camera has too many flaws for serious use. IQ(stills): Even in RAW there is a noticeable lack of sharpness and crip. NR ist too heavy. JPEGs look too flat. 6MP is enough, however I expected more from the "big sensor". Even old Canon G-series was ways better than the F1. IQ(HD video/VGA): Nothing special, HD ist a waste of memory and causes some problems on my computer. VGA isn´t even as good as this one from my Canon S5 IS. Highspeed videos: ...

I bought an EX-F1 second hand, purely for its high speed video modes. I'm looking to integrate high speed footage into videos otherwise shot in high def on Panasonic HVX200 but intended for web viewing. I'm in love with the 50 fps shooting the HVX200 can do and couldn't resist the chance to try really high-speed shooting. I freely admit I bought the camera as a toy to play with, but with "proper" high speed cameras with high frame rates are horrifically expensive I wanted to see what I could ...

I bought the camera primarily to record birds visiting a feeding station. As this is a way from house, I found that by using a 62mm to 55mm stepping ring I could fit the telephoto adapter which I have for my Panasonic FZ50 - it works perfectly. I have had no problems setting up the auto activate system when the bird enters or leaves the site, just a bit of experimenting required. The RAW facility is of very limited use, as it will not work with any of the advanced features and is very sllow ...

I enjoy photographing rockets in flight, including my own high-power rockets. The EX-F1 provides several unique features that enhance my ability to catch dramatic stills and videos. Sample images and a more complete review are at payloadbay.com.
