At IFA 2007 in Berlin, Casio is displaying a prototype digital camera that is capable of taking still images at 60fps and movies at 300fps. The new camera uses a 6 megapixel CMOS sensor and a high speed LSI image processing chip to crunch all of that data. Besides the actual prototype, there is no word on release date, pricing, or even final specifications.
