Ultra slow motion movies ... from a point and shoot camera?

Check this bad boy out. Casio's EXILIM Pro EX-F1 may be the fastest point and shoot camera in the world.

Casio says that their newest offering will let you capture the perfect moment with bursts of up to 60 frames per second. Look mom, no shutter ... If 60 fps excites you, wait till you hear that this camera can capture videos at up to 1,200 fps for ultra slow motion videos:

  • High Def (1920x1080 pixels): 30 fps
  • Standard (640x480 pixels): 30 fps
  • Hi-Speed (512x384 pixels): 300 fps
  • Hi-Speed (432x192 pixels): 600 fps
  • Hi-Speed (336x96 pixels): 1200 fps
This sounds crazy. But it's on the show floor at the CES.

Check out Gizmodo's review of this interesting new toy. It's set to drop into stores this spring at a price just under US$1000. They've even put the camera to the test. Check out this still from a burst series. Not bad. It's a bit dark, so I cleaned it up a bit.

I love the CES show.
