Update: AP posted a clarification that Canon does not have plans to produce this camera.
AP made a statement today that "Canon plans to launch a camera capable of shooting still images at a frame rate exceeding 60 shots per second". They were talking about the Canon 4k camera, that was shown as a concept at the CanonExpo in New York over a month ago. The initial word from Canon (as you can see from the video above) was that this camera is just a prototype that will not be mass-produced.
Canon 4k specs:
- 8MP 2/3-inch CMOS sensor
- able to shoot 4k (4096×2160 resolution) video @ 60 frames per second
- fixed 20x f/1.8-f/3.8 optical zoom - 35mm equivalent of a 24-480mm lens (?)
- the lens will have new "fully electronically-controlled, lens drive system"
