Casio has announced no fewer than five new Exilim digital cameras: four compacts and one behemoth. Who can say how legend will remember the beast pictured here; Casio calls it the Exilim EX-F1.
The EX-F1 packs a high-speed CMOS sensor, high-speed flash, and a high-speed LSI processor. These doohickeys need to be high-speed because this zippy snapper is living up to its Formula 1-esque moniker.
We scoffed at Casio's talk earlier this year of burst speeds that would leave Lewis Hamilton giddy, but now the EX-F1 is here and it busts out an astonishing 60 frames per second. That's at a full 6-megapixel resolution. If you want a longer timespan the frame rate can be dropped with a handy slider using the EX-F1's neat scroll wheel.
Casio claims the EX-F1 will "change the world of photography". We'll see quite soon, as the EX-F1 could be in shops as soon as March and will probably retail for about $1,000 (roughly £500).
