Casio Exilim 60 FPS Camera

Casio opened its presence at Berlin's IFA technology show today by demonstrating a new pro camera that would blur distinctions between still and motion photography. The unnamed Exilim combines a new-generation CMOS sensor with enhanced LSI processing to capture video at frame rates better even than the best home HD cameras. Though capped at 6 megapixels, the camera can record video at this full resolution at 60 frames per second -- double that of standard video and quick enough to let the camera snap images at full size without interrupting video or significantly blurring the resulting shot.

Slow-motion videographers can also drop the resolution to a standard 640x480 to increase the frame rate to 300 per second for even smoother playback. Movies and photos alike are recorded to SDHC in AVI and JPEG formats, respectively. Casio regards the Exilim model as a prototype today but will produce a finished version sometime in 2008, according to comments from a company spokesperson to Engadget. The current model is built around a 12X optical zoom lens and a 2.8-inch preview LCD, but may change closer to its release date. [via Impress]
