Casio has launched the EXLIM EX-FR10-a new modular wireless camera that can be split into two parts to make it easier to capture photos in almost any angle or distance and includes selfies too.
The Exilim EX-FR10 includes a round lens unit and a rectangular body with an LCD screen that can be easily separated with the press of a button. The EX-FR10 is packed with accessories that let you strap it on your forehead or your wrist, it can also be clipped to convenient palces such as belt loops. so that you can use it like a GoPro. A nut is provided for attaching the device to tripods, whilst a multi-angle clip and a belt set allow the camera to be attached or worn in different places, such as on a bag strap or around the user’s head.
The lens connects to the wireless controller via Bluetooth. With Wi-Fi connectivity you can share images with your smartphone or tablet. The top of the camera houses a power button, a shutter release button, a video recording button and a free switch that lets you change the lens’ orientation. The camera features a microSD card compartment on its right side while its left side hides a micro-USB port for charging.
