Thread: 300 fps

  1. #1

    Default 300 fps

    According to the following site, "Casio have made an interesting announcement about a very high speed digtal camera which they are working on. It's a 6MP camera which can shoot at an astonishing 60 frames per second at full resolution and a mind blowing 300 frames per second in VGA (640 x 480) resolution!"

    And to think that modern movies are made only in 24fps, although most television material, often filmed at 30 or 60 FPS.

    Is 300 fps possible?

    Well, they can say how fast their camera can shoot, but almost nobody is going to need that 300fps, maybe except some specialist shooters for some scientific research. This annoucement is more for showing off and marketing their brands.

    If there is a 300fps video, how are we going to view the picture? I think most TVs or monitor refresh at most 100Hz?

    300 fps....
    can't imagine how IS will work. 300 fps sure give lots of shaking.

    erh why will it lead to more shaking ?

    assuming the same amount of shake per second , and you cannot see it on a 30fps video, u most probably will not be able to tell at 300fps either ..

    Anyway to shoot at 300fps, I would think that the shutter speed will need to be at least 1/300s or faster. So shake should not be a problem.

    Canon, according to a friend (since he has the camera), made a PNS cam with a 60fps function. I remember him using it to try and capture fast moving projectiles in mid-flight.

    If you have 300 frames a second you can play it back and for every second of video @ 300 fps you can play back at 25 fps and get 12 seconds of slo motion which would be amazing since you would need a high end video cam to do this.
    This would be a nice feature for filming and eye blink or a balloon pop.

    So it's not that it won't be usable on video - it's just how could you use it. Some consumers may use it but it still remains a marketing IMHO.

    If I am not wrong, for purpose of scientific research, a "higher fps" video camera has already been developed. The 300 fps video is still unable to capture sufficient data for the purpose.
