Our own Theodore Gray (the man behind Gray Matter's mad science) is currently in China, and he's taken the opportunity to put his new Casio EX-F1 high-speed camera to excellent use at the Beijing Zoo. And when we say excellent we mean the majestic hawk at the Beijing zoo defecating and flapping its wings at 300 frames per second kind of excellent. And if that's not enough, he's got a dolphin leaping from beneath the water and a sparrow taking flight to boot.

A few years ago, most digital cameras took a second or more to snap a single picture. In the same amount of time, Casio's new Exilim EX-F1 takes 60 six-megapixel photos or up to 1,200 frames of video-stretching that single tick into a 40-second movie. At that rate, you could pick out the feathers on a hummingbird's wings. It wallops even the fastest professional still camera, which takes 11 photos per second, and rivals industrial-grade, high-speed video rigs that cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Back in October, we told you about Casios prototype supercamera that shoots 60 six-megapixel still photos per second (better than even pro SLRs) and standard-def video at up to 300 frames per second to make some pretty impressive slow-mo movies.
Well today Casio took the wraps off the EXILIM Pro EX-F1 the real version of the camera that youll be able to by in a few months for $1,000. And theyve added even more power.
