    Default One thousand fps! It's madness, I tells ya!

    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.

    Shoot F1 maybe? Then replay in slow-mo a million times. In fact, I can think of a million things to capture:

    1. Break a glass and watch it in action
    2. Car crash
    3. Goalkeeper dive
    etc..etc...

    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...

    Maybe it comes with laser illumination?

    Probably an expensive way to make really cool animated .gifs?

    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

    Hmmmm why will light (in general?) flicker? Particle theory?

    Those are way cooler! Had the chance to play with one before.. Even the lamp (hydrargyrum medium arc length iodide) to provide intense light was awesome!

    Because they run on 50Hz or 60Hz AC mains?

    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!

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

    That's specific to certain artificial lighting only

    Actually I'm quite sure the average human cannot detect flashing objects past approx 60-70Hz (with eyes). So that's the whole point of the high fps camera!
