Casio demos 'world's fastest-shooting' digicam

VGA video at 300fps, anyone?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

IFA 07 Casio has developed a digital SLR camera capable of capturing 60 shots every second. That's stills - it can capture 640 x 480 video at a stunning 300fps. The company heralded the device as the 'world's fastest-shooting' snapper.

Not that you'll be able to buy it in the shops any time soon. The camera exists solely as a prototype model, which the Japanese manufacturer showed off at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin today.

For what it's worth the camera on display was a six-megapixel job with a 12x optical zoom lens array, a 2.8in display and an electromechanical image stabilisation system.

We hope it's got high capacity SDHC memory card support. At the camera's capture rate, it's going to fill up the on-board memory in the blink of an eye.

Casio stressed that it has yet to decide what the finished product's specifications will be, what it'll look like and even what it might be called, so don't read too much into the prototype's details.
