CASIO EXILIM Pro EX-F1 wins TIPA Award 2008
"Best Imaging Innovation in Europe 2008"
for the high-speed digital camera
Norderstedt, April 2008 - For the first time a CASIO digital camera has won one of the highly-acclaimed TIPA awards with the EXILIM Pro EX-F1. The award is for "Best Imaging Innovation in Europe 2008". The newly developed technology of the EX-F1 allows up to 60 photos a second for still images in full resolution. Thanks to a novel high-speed CMOS sensor and high-speed LSI processor, this high-speed camera is able to record full high definition (full HD) videos* and high-speed movie recording for replay in slow motion with up to 1,200 fps.
An impressive innovation and technical advance: reason enough for the members of TIPA to award the EXILIM Pro Model with the title of "Best Imaging Innovation in Europe 2008".
This is the 18th year that the Technical Image Press Association has conferred awards on excellent products in the area of photography and imaging. Founded in 1991, TIPA is an independent non-profit association of European photographic and imaging magazines. It has a roll of 27 members from eleven countries and today is one of the largest and most influential associations in the field of photography and imaging in the whole of Europe. Every year, the publishers of the members' magazines select the winners in the various categories of the European Photo & Imaging Awards. Technical innovations, clever ideas, value for money and user-friendliness are put under the spotlight. In total, 36 products were given one of the sought-after TIPA awards.
The award ceremony is to take place at photokina, the international imaging fair, which will be held in Cologne from 23 to 28 September 2008.
* Maximum recording time in HD / full HD quality: 29 minutes per movie.
