Casio EX-F1 computer-control enters the US market

The news from Japan two weeks ago that the Casio EX-F1 was getting computer-control functionality are now being announced in the US market by Casio. You can read about it at the ALC, Imaging Resource and such.

The problem of course with the Casio EX-F1 is its price. It came out at $1000 and it is still at $1000. When it came out, there was no DSLR-Video. Now there is DSLR-Video and there is Micro-Four-Thirds-video. And let's not forget that initially Casio did not allow (!) the sale of this camera online. Now that's a brilliant move for the 21st century.

But regardless, the pricing is guaranteed to keep the EX-F1 as a micro-niche product, even though, at least in our opinion, price-aside, this is a promising move by Casio, with a modest 6mp 1/1.8" sensor and a reasonable 12X IS lens. And yes, RAW support of course, which is why we are talking about it here :-)
