Casio to release 300fps digital camera

60fps at 6 Megapixels

| Cameras News | Posted: Sep 3, 2007 8:49 am

Casio has showed of a new digital Exilim camera based on Sony's latest CMOS sensor which is capable of shooting 300 frames per second in VGA resolution, or 60fps at 6 Megapixels. Although it is limited to a maximum resolution of 6 Megapixels, but this shouldn't prove to be too much of a problem considering the high frame speed of this camera. Although it's only a prototype for now, we doubt that the final version will look all that different to the one showed.

 

The lens on the prototype features 12x optical zoom, equivalent to 35 to 420mm on a 35mm film camera. It stores pictures on SDHC cards and it has CMOS-shift image stabilization which should help handheld shots with the long optical zoom. Around the back you'll find a 2.8-inch LCD display and an electronic viewfinder with dioptre adjustment.

 

 

The camera measures 127.5x79.5x130mm (WxHxD) and weighs 650g without batteries. No release date has been announced, nor any pricing, but we don't expect this one to be too cheap. You can find out more here
