Poor mans answer to the EX1 60fps

Apparently Casio (yeah I know) are releasing a 6mp camera capable of continuous full image capture at 60fps!!!

http://www.tomshardware.com/2008/02/...es_per_second/

Technically this is 2k at 60fps - which kind of beats the EX1's 720p 60fps limit.

I know its apples and oranges (and thatís being kind)...however, with this kind of technology flooding through into the consumer market (the cam only costs $1k) are we fast approaching an era where some RED like start up partners with Nikon or similar to deliver a sub $10k camera that leaves even RED looking 'overpriced / old school'.

Either way Id love to get my hands on the cam to see how well this 2k 60fps really works in video terms...if at all...

While the Casio is able to shoot full resolution at up to 60 FPS, the limit is 60 frames. That would come to 1 second of full resolution 6MP, 60P video.

For sports photographers, this would be outstanding. For HD video production, you will be limited to 1080, 60i an 720, 30p.

The high speed movie mode is interesting, 512 ◊ 384 (300 fps), 432 ◊ 192 (600 fps), 336 ◊ 96 (1200 fps). The 300 FPS is a bit lower than SD, but might still be usable.

Other than You tube videos, I've yet to see a down loadable file direct from the camera. I've also never seen the origional image files from the camera.
