    That's precisely the point - to capture (and slow down) what the human eye cannot see so that the human CAN see.

    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!
    first, you have to get over the fact that your monitor also cannot support 200fps...

    Sounds perfect for youtube

    u don't get the point. it records at 1000fps. then put it in a standard 30fps movie format. u r slowing it down 33.33 times (1000/30).

    which means that for a 1 minute action, it becomes 33.33 minutes.

    so u can see fast action like golf swing which is typically 1 secs, becomes 33 seconds on video. can action in slow motion.

    see this youtube example of Tiger Woods Swing

    good for machine diagnostics.
    eg. to see why some mechanical parts jam.

    I think we can all appreciate what high-speed captures can do.

    I think we are more curious as to what this particular Casio can do. It has a very tiny sensor, so I think those of us who are used to seeing Discovery Channel standard ultra slo-mo effects might be disappointed with the Casio output?

    I somehow doubt a consumer camera costing a thousand dollars can replace specialised equipment costing many times more. Not yet anyway.
