Embedded Vision Alliance: High-speed capture

1 Million FPS: What Could You Do With Those Sort Of Image Capture Specs?

Not so very long ago, I remember how pleased I was to learn that my first digital SLR, Pentax's *ist D, was capable of 2.7 fps burst capture speeds (for up-to-5 frame JPG bursts). How time flies; Pentax's latest high-end "35mm" DSLR, the K-5, does 7 fps (for up to 22 JPGs or 8 RAWs) or 2 fps (unlimited JPGs) sustained still frame captures if the storage media write speeds can keep up, along with capturing 25 fps 1080p video.
