Casio Exilim EX-FH20
40 fps stills, 1000fps movies.
Even though I have some doubts as to real-world applications, I can't help but to be impressed with the specs.
Now, that's cool!
not sure how useful the fps is...but thats still impressive
Yeah, 1000fps, but only at a tiny 224x56 (0.0125Mpix) resolution. The minimum shutter speed for 1000fps is 1/1000s, coupled with a tiny 1/2.3" sensor... i think gotta be realistic about what kind of picture quality it would deliver...
Actually there's one that runs at 1,200 fps.
I would imagine it being very useful where high-speed videos for analysis/troubleshooting is concerned, think of a golf swing or firing a weapon, besides being ultra-cool! Search 'high-speed videos' on you-tube and you get an idea of the applications potential.
Like that, if we play frame by frame or in ultra-slow mo, I guess we could see if the light would really flicker as what physics teachers tell us
like those cameras in mythbusters!!
Dodge flying debris...yea...
hahah, cameras are becoming video cams...
first they suprised us with the d90, now this...
the 1k fps is for vry low res vid.. still impressive tho but cant blow it up except for viewing on maybe jus ur mp4 player or camera itself.. 1kfps means shutter speed needs to be >1/1000 so probably need to be bright light.. or compensate wif grainy digital noise
Actually I doubt the human eye can see beyond 100-200fps.
Try running an old game like Quake 2 or something on ur PC on today's video cards, set low resolution, and even if it's achieving 500fps or more....I doubt u will see the difference if it's running at 200fps...
On Casio's part....pure marketing gimmick!

Good cam for special users with special needs. E.g. Singapore Paranoma Investigators. And others who hunt for aliens, ufo, spontaneous human combustion etc...
