Exilim FR10 camera commercial film

Commercial movie for Casio Exilim FR10 camera. The gadget can split into two parts and hence allows a different kind of photography experience.

The camera looks like a direct competition to GoPro, the leader in freestyle photography. If you read the reviews for FR10 on other websites you will probably see GoPro mentioned in most of the articles.

BTW, although Casio is not that famous for cameras, the company was actually an early pioneer for digital photography.

PS3 was released in 2006. And PS4 will be available later this year.

These days PlayStation has to compete with Nintendo’s Wii U and Switch, and also Microsoft’s Xbox One for the game consoles market.

The “eight generation” mentioned at beginning of the post refers to the development of video game consoles in general and not just by Sony.
