Getting Crazy with the Casio

by Derrick Story

After a week of poking, probing, and picking, I've posted a review of the Casio EX-P505 digital camera, er, MPEG-4 camcorder, I mean, stereo capture unit, oh and umm, infrared picture maker. It takes snapshots too.

Casio threw down the gauntlet by stating that video functionality for the EX-P505 isn't supported on the Mac. Instead they provide you with this cheesy software bundle for Windows. Well guess what, thanks to some nifty open source tools, you can encode Casio's MPEG-4 for OS X, and it looks fabulous!

I cover how to do that, plus discuss infrared and regular picture taking stuff with this palm-sized powerhouse of a camera. Great fun indeed.
