*January 7, 2009 - *Casio president Kazuo Kashio today demonstrated a new animated photography feature called Dynamic Photo. The new system uses the company's proven high-speed burst-mode technology to create a multi-frame animation of a moving subject. A separate image is taken of the background alone, which is then dropped out within the camera to create a clip of the subject which can then be overlaid on a still-image background. The demonstration had a live model reach outward with a gift in her hand. Her figure was then outlined and superimposed on prepared digital greeting card backgrounds to create an animated birthday greeting. Details on the cameras which will incorporate Dynamic Photo Capability will be posted at Digitalcamerainfo.com the morning of January 8, when the editorial embargo is lifted.

Also to come in the morning is more information on two new high-speed cameras, following on the heels of the EX-F1 ($999) and EX-FH20 ($599) introduced in 2008. The new camera models, the FC100 and FS10, will both shoot at 30 photos per second, and take ultra-slow-motion videos at 1000 frames per second. And unlike the first two high-speed Casio cameras, these are promised to hit 'consumer prices.'
