Agree with you Seebayho.
Casio is in a class of its own when it comes to high speed still shots and slow motion video. Although Fujifilm now has the Superzoom (30x) which can also take slow mo video but not high speed still shots.
Casio is not the choice as a backup camera for for enthusisasts.
Both the Fujifilm HS10 and the Canon G10 will take much better pics, with Canon the winner most times for image quality.
