    I'm guessing you we will need to carry portable generator and harddisks to take a pics, cos just the shutter, and in that 0.03 sec, we would have taken something like 6 million shots... yike!!!

    Hopefully the Singapore Traffic Police is not thinking of purchasing a few of these cameras.

    Even "my Lamborghini" cannot "siam."

    Generator, yes... But HDD? No.. Most of these high-speed cameras use film.. Not to mention it'd cost an arm and a leg even with lower-quality lenses.. High-speed cameras like these use multiple rotating bodies to achieve such framerates.

    i believe the sound of the shutter itself will make us either faint for vomit blood...

    imagine 200mil frames... its like... worse then a GPMg.... terrible. i think the faint hearted ones will go like ........ straight line...

    maybe find the .wav on the shutter sound... =p and its 200mil FPS leh.... sheez.....

    the HDD will be like 1000gb ah ?
