Casio has announced that it is developing a new prosumer digital camera that shoot up to 60 frames per second at IFA 2007 in Berlin, Germany.

On display at the show, the prototype of Casio’s latest camera features a new high speed CMOS sensor and a high speed LSI image processing chip.

This 6 megapixel, 12x optical zoom, high performance digital camera prototype with CMOS-shift image stabilisation function offers not only ultra high speed burst shooting for still images, but also high speed movie recording.

For still images, the camera achieves ultra high speed burst shooting of 60 images per second at maximum resolution — the fastest in the world.

Users will also be able to use a Pre-shot Burst Mode, a ultra-high speed continuous shooting mode that captures images from the scene prior to the moment when you actually press the shutter button.

The camera can also capture movies at VGA resolution at an incredible 300 frames per second, which means it can record movies for replay in ultra-slow motion, a function that according to Casio has only been possible so far with a limited range of professional movie equipment.

Casio is expecting the product to be available in the next 2 years.

We will keep you posted.
