High-sensitivity CMOS sensor
Excellent photos — even in poor lighting conditions
Dark rooms, twilight or poor lighting conditions? You can still take outstanding photos! The EXILIM High Speed EX-FH100 is equipped with a new High-sensitivity CMOS sensor for extraordinarily detailed shots, even in poor lighting conditions. It also processes the photos much faster. A new technology allows the sensor to capture more light and increases sensitivity while simultaneously reducing image noise considerably. The outcome is outstanding — detailed photos with excellent contrasts and rich colours.
Do it yourself!
Besides high-performance automatic controls, the EX-FH100 also boasts a wide range of manual options for creative shots. Set the aperture and shutter to suit your photographic requirements.

Different BEST SHOT High-speed Burst Shooting recording programs
Poor photos — no chance!
Whether they're tearing around the playground, doing tricks or taking part in sporting events, children, animals and sportspeople are still ideal subjects for photos. But what is the best setting? Five new BEST SHOT High-speed Burst Shooting recording modes now make photographing that perfect moment child's play. Simply select a BEST SHOT High-speed Burst Shooting recording mode, press the shutter release button and the optimum number of photos, speed and pre-record shots are automatically configured.
BEST SHOT High-speed Lighting
Great shots even in poor lighting conditions
Who hasn't experienced the problem of light and shade in a photo? Shaded subjects are underexposed and unrecognisable, and illuminated subjects are much too bright. The new High-speed Lighting function can help you: It provides a higher contrast range and optimised detail definition for shots with both shade and strong light. To achieve a higher dynamic range, the High-speed Lighting function combines multiple shots with different exposures into one photo with optimal exposure. Multiple shots are also possible for subjects with varying luminance.
High-speed Anti Shake
Automatically keep a steady hand
The BEST SHOT high-speed anti-shake function uses high-speed serial picture recording to the max for clearer images. The positions of consecutive photos are automatically combined to form one optimised photo. This means that even telephoto shots, which tend to be blurred due to hand movement, are clear and sharp.
High-speed night-time photos
Clarity at night-time too
The BEST SHOT high-speed night-time photos function uses high-speed serial picture recording to the max for clearer images at night. The positions of consecutive photos are automatically combined to form one optimised photo. The danger of blurred photos is reduced when taking photos at night, even without using a tripod.
High-Speed Best Selection
Ensuring you always capture the perfect moment
To ensure that you capture the perfect moment, the EX-FH100 can select the best photos from a series of shots automatically – showing a smiling face, open eyes and without blurring. The best images are saved.

BEST SHOT lag correction feature
Don't miss a second
How many times have you pressed the shutter release button too late and missed the best shot? Annoying, but avoidable. You need never again waste valuable seconds — the natural delay between identifying the subject and pressing the shutter release button is now a thing of the past: with the new lag correction function, the EX-FH100 can capture any moment, anytime. The camera selects the photo that corresponds to the configured lag from the temporary serial picture memory. If this photo is not satisfactory, you can choose the right moment from five other stored images.

Face detection function
Whether on holiday, at a party or with the family, people are an especially popular subject for photos. It is a shame then, when their faces are blurred. Practical: The face detection function recognises individual faces or even entire groups and automatically determines the best possible setting.
Always on the move
The multi-motion function means that the camera automatically detects moving subjects against a static background and uses the high-speed serial picture recording feature to create an image sequence. The camera also selects up to five of these photos and combines them into one final photo, in which the images are shown in sequence against the static background.
Move-in series shot
There are moments which can't be activated at the touch of a button. Nature in particular simply won't be controlled. How can we know when a bee will land on a flower or a stork will return back to its nest? With the BEST SHOT function Move-in series shot you can take photos as soon as a motif moves into an area previously defined by you. Using a tripod, multiple shots with Move-in are also particularly suited for observing animals as the camera activates automatically without you having to do a thing.
Move out series shot
On your marks, get set, go!
One of the most exciting moments in race sport is undoubtedly the start of the race. But pressing the release button at the precise moment the cars leave the starting line is more a matter of luck than anything else. With Move-out series shot, the series shot function is activated as soon as the defined object moves out of the focus area.
