Default The Future of the Compact Cam.. From Casio!!

How does 60FPS sound? Thats full resolution by the way
CASIO - IN TOUCH WITH THE FUTURE

And wait videos are shot in 300FPS

To compare, the most expensive DSLR goes 10FPS.


This is a Casio prototype camera which may be in production soon. It also features a pre shot buffer mode which starts taking images before you press shutter so that even if you are slow and "miss the moment" you don't miss the shot.!

Currently super slow mo video equipment costs thousands of dollars, now you have something like that for maybe 300$

Wow! that would be awesome! Now lets see some downsampling devices to play that on our HDMI LCDs and forgot the 50GB SDHC card for a few minutes of video !

On a serious note, this looks like a mindblowing camcorder rather than a camera to me!!

Eh... 60 fps, 12 optical zoom isnt good enough for a digital camera you mean!

I think it is nothing new. Sony has something similar called BestPics. Basically the camera starts working furiously from the moment the user starts pressing the shutter. By the time the user completes one click the cam ends up taking some 6 shots or so in very quick succession. You can then take your pic and retain the one you wish (or all of them).

It starts from the moment you half press shutter to lock focus.

It boils down to what it can capture in those 60frames. Considering that many people rarely use burst mode in shooting even in DSLRs, its not a 'must have'. If they address high iso shooting like how fujifilm has been doing and get the image stabilized lens to start at 28mm, that would be enough for a digital camera

Fujifilm prosumer camera's are better at higher ISO but not my much, in anycase this new cam from Casio has image stabilization built in.
I use burst mode a lot where I can, as an example... Capturing bird flights, you have more examples on the Casion link itself.

300fps is an achievement in itself for video.
And 60fps is no joke
Its Full size 60FPS
Ever shot a true action thingy? Like a eagle swooping on a kill. 10 FPS is the bare minimum you need so that you don't miss "the shot".

I just hope Casio will pull it through with all these features and specifications and there is no marketing tricks. Lets wait and watch if Casio can
revolutionize the market.

60 FPS is great but do you guys think it would be with focus tracking. I dont think so.
