New golfer-friendly Casio EX-FC160S revealed in Japan
Time for a new camera announcement! Japanese websites DigitalCamera.jp and DC Watch (computer-translated) write that Casio has just announced the new EX-FC160S (computer-translated), a golfer-friendly digital camera based on the Casio EX-FC1X0 series of cameras. It earns its "golfer cred" thanks to a special mode that can help with swing analysis. The camera will be released in late August for around 35K yen, with an initial production volume of 5000 camera units per month, and promoted by golfer Arimura Tie. Despite the "S" in the camera name, this is actually a red camera!
With the camera field getting congested and overpopulated, cameras are acting like politicians - they are pandering to different demographics!
On a total unrelated note, happy birthday to all our readers are celebrating their birthdays today! Also, a tip of the hat to all IBM PC fans - it was this day in 1981 that the IBM PC was released. And a special shoot-out to Perth/Australia and Chicago/USA residents celebrating the founding of their beloved cities!
