'Camera of the Future' Invented
By Michael Silbergleid
SidewaysNews.com reports that scientists at the University of Oxford have developed a revolutionary way of capturing a high-resolution still image alongside high-speed video which has attracted the interest of science, industry and consumer sectors alike.
By combining off-the-shelf technologies found in standard cameras and digital movie projectors, the researchers created a tool that will transform detailed scientific imaging.
In addition, 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.
