    In defense of the casio, it's 60fps at 6MP, which is faster than my gargantuan Canon 1D at a higher resolution. That said, that does seem a bit fishy to me...

    EDIT:Oh wait, it's a prototype. Wow. I also made myself a prototype 4-2400mm f/1 IS DO yesterday to match my nine gagazijabillabrazillizillibillimillion megapixel camera which is waterproof to the point that I can fill my camerabag with water to drink while I'm shooting. Yup, prototypes with outrageous specs are suuure hard to make up.

    ^^^The difference is that nobody made up such a prototype, as that would be impossible. This is a prototype, but it works, as is shown in the videos.

    The point is that the user can shoot fast enough, and at a high enough resolution to show movement in slow motion. This would be great for things like analysing a tennis swing, as demonstrated in the video on the site. Lots of people are dying for this sort of thing at a price low enough for consumers to purchase. Think about sports. Think about any coach starting from the high school level, down to more elite athletes. Sure, it's not 1000 frames/second like some of the super-expensive machines, but someone looking to analyse a golf swing, or how a person going through physio moves is going to appreciate this. ;)

    mmmmhmmm

    60fps seems like the magic number when dealing with interlaced video...

    maybe its really just a fancy camcorder with the video part taken out and replaced with something that takes "video" as a bunch of still frames? :rolleyes:

    I did too, though I personally enjoy the fx-115.

    They are showing it at the IFA.

    Engadget says they told them it would ship in 2008.

    http://www.engadget.com/2007/08/31/hands-on-with-casios-60fps-digital-camera/

    VGA is 480p, so this is better than an SD camera for video at 300fps.

    At 60fps you're getting 6MP (half of Red One).

    Why do you complain?

    PS: It's a pity they used SDHC instead of Compact Flash. It's not a tiny camera.

    Lets split the thread?

    EDIT: My teacher has the 115, apparently algebra is pretty easy to do on it.

    I think it's cool - I'd love to be able to make my own slow-motion film.

    I have a D70 which shoots at 6.1...

    I feel like 60fps at 6mgpz would be... cheating? it's like you're taking the skill out of it. Although I do like it from a sports coaching perspective, as has been previously noted.

    Autofocus is cheating, priority modes are cheating, matrix metering is cheating, ...

    Nothing is cheating, it´s just a tool for making as good pictures as possible or are you using those old card board box cameras used in the 18-hundreds?

    6.1 megapixels

    Of course! What's better for football? I mean... you aren't using one of those new-fangled 35mm cameras are you? Because "momma says that's the devil"

    Lol, dubious comparison if ever. You can get 6MP cell phones in Korea now...and what of it? Red One shoots in 4k progressive, it's awesome...and cheap by 4k standards, or even most 2k solutions...it's revolutionary. Casio?

    Sorry, my HS Spanish is all but forgotten. I don't see the way they are calculating. 300fps SD? is how as to what resolution in 60fps? as compared to what else?


    Here's a nice fast (as in wicked insanely great high-speed) high-speed DV camera with 1 microsecond exposures too!...good thing it's only 800 x 600, just think of the bandwith SAN (cluster of Xserves?) of penta bytes capacity you'd need to record in 4k at those speeds :eek:

    D70 actually shoots a tad over 3fps with the proper media. But no way 6.1 like stated.

    The D80 has been proven to shoot as high as 5fps with a SanDisk Extreme III 2GB, which is what I use.

    The media should make no difference to fps. The shots get thrown to the buffer first before getting written to disk. A faster memory card would only clear the buffer faster, allowing for a longer continuous burst.
