World's Fastest Shooting Camera

Casio is currently developing its fastest shooting digital camera that has a high speed burst shooting mode of 60 images per second at 6 megapixels and can capture video at a whopping 300 frames per second. Casio's prototype of this camera is currently being shown at the IFA in Berlin, Germany.

The prototype's specifications include:

Effective pixels: 6.0 million
Imaging element: 1/1.8 inch high speed CMOS sensor (total pixels: 6.6 million)
High speed burst shooting: 60 images per second at 6.0 million pixels, JPEG
High speed movie: 300fps, Motion JPEG, AVI format, VGA
Lens/focal distance: 12 lenses in 9 groups, F2.7 to 4.6, equivalent to approximately 35 to 420 mm on a 35 mm film camera
Zoom: 12X optical zoom
Image stabilization mechanism: CMOS-shift image stabilization
Monitor screen: 2.8-inch widescreen TFT color LCD, approx. 230,000 pixels
Viewfinder: Color LCD, approx. 200,000 pixels
Dimension and weight: 5.01” (W) x 3.13” (H) x 5.12” (D). Approx. 22.93 oz (excluding battery and accessories)

Racing fans would probably want to get their hands on one of these. No pricing, release date, and branding is available for Casio's prototype since the company is currently further developing the digital camera.
