The SLR-like Casio EXILIM Pro EX-F1 has a high-speed six megapixel CMOS image sensor, and is capable of shooting at full resolution for up to 60 frames, at a truly staggering 60 frames per second. Cleverly, Casio has made it possible to adjust the burst-mode rate between 1 and 60 frames per second, trading off shooting speed for burst length up to the 60 frame burst limit.

The Casio F1's speed isn't just in still-image mode - you can also capture 60 fields-per-second movies at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, and there are several lower-resolution movie modes that bring unheard of framerates. At 512 384 pixels the Pro EX-F1 can capture 300 frames per second, and this doubles to 600 fps at 432 192 pixels. At the lowest 336 96 pixel resolution, this doubles once more to a truly jaw-dropping 1200 frames per second.

The Casio Pro EX-F1 includes a 12x optical zoom lens, electronic viewfinder with 202k pixels, 2.8" LCD display with 230k pixels, CCD-RAW format, and SD / MMC storage. We're pretty sure Casio's got a winner on its hands with the EX-F1. Even if the $1,000 pricetag might get you an entry-level DSLR and a couple of lenses, it won't get you the speed you'll find in the Casio EX-F1!

The Casio EXILIM Pro EX-F1 ships from March 2008.
