New York Times: Casio still camera shoots 60 fps; video up to 1,200 fps
The New York Times today reports on the new Casio Exilim EX-F1 camera. The hook for sports leagues and networks? The $1,000 camera shoots six-megapixel images at 60 frames per second. It also has stero microphones and even a jack for an external mic. Why? Because it can shoot video at up to 1,200 frames per second. As a final time trick, the F1 can
display, on its 2.8-inch screen, a slow-motion version of what the
camera is “seeing.” Your preview falls further and further behind real
time — but you now have the luxury of patience as you decide precisely
when to snap the shot.
