BBC reports The fastest imaging system ever devised has been demonstrated by researchers reporting in the journal Nature.

Their camera snaps images less than a half a billionth of a second long, capturing over six million of them in a second continuously.

How long do you think it will be before that kind of fps is avaliable on entry level DSLRs?:thinking: I'm asking because I'm tempted by the a900, but if I only have to wait a century or two for it to filter down to entry level cameras, then I might wait a while..........

It won't be that long I suspect, Casio already has a compact that does something like 30fps, it'll soom migrate to the DSLR's if theres a demand. The only thing I'm worried about is post processing 6 million shots of the cake cutting!

There is a HD video cam out there that does 1000fps for $9,000. I'd settle for images that are 1920 x 1080 :D

I think the top one does 60FPS stills - and 1200FPS movie mode (not in HD though).

Not a patch on 2,000,000,000FPS though. Add a few billion more FPS and it'll be able to microwave the operator at the same time.
