Just read these articles about a new method of capturing images from a standard DSLR sensor.

http://www.sidewaysnews.com/science-tec ... e-invented

Not only do the scientific applications sound amazing

imaging calcium transients in heart cells at 250 Hz using a 10-Hz megapixel camera.
but also the potential standard DSLR applications
Quote:
the new technology could provide access to high-speed video - which can film up to 250,000 frames a second - with high-resolution still images from the same camera at a price suitable for the consumer market.

I saw this on tweakers.net myself - Makes me wonder if this will open the flood gates on widely available high speed camera's! :)

The 3rd link isn't working for me at the moment (suspected network problem here) but from the other two, I think I see how they're doing the speed trick. I suspect it would have an adverse impact on the stills captured at the same time as video unless it's a slow moving subject, which negates the advantage of simultaneous acquisition somewhat.
