Casio has announced that it is currently developing a totally new and revolutionary digital camera with never-seen-before high speed performance and image capture functions.
The prototype of Casio’s latest revolutionary camera features a new high speed CMOS sensor as well as a high-speed LSI image processing chip. It will be a 6.0 mega pixel camera and will feature 12x optical zoom and CMOS-shift image stabilization functions that offers not only ultra-high speed burst shooting for still images, but also high speed movie recording.
When shooting still images, the Casio camera can achieve a high speed burst shooting of 60 images per second at maximum resolution, incidentally the fastest ever in the world. Besides, when using Pre-shot Burst Mode, users can be confident of capturing the most crucial of photographic moments.
Casio’s revolutionary camera also captures movies at VGA resolution at a speed of 300 frames per second, meaning that it can record movies for replay in ultra-slow motion. This function has been possible so far only for a limited range of professional movie equipment.
Listed below are the main specifications of Casio’s prototype camera:
As of now, the product release date and pricing have yet to be determined. Meanwhile, Casio will continue to work on this camera to further improve its performance and functionality.
