Wow. That would be pretty cool. I think I may need to replace my Cannon Powershot S50 when these are put into production. HD Video from a digital camera? 10 8-MP pics a second! Wow.The Boise, Idaho-based chipmaker has come up with an 8-megapixel silicon imager for compact cameras that will allow cameras to shoot 10 8-megapixel pictures a second or 30 2-megapixel shots a second. If camera makers adopt the chip, consumers will be able to capture those '60s-style photo montages made famous in "A Hard Day's Night."
The chip will also be capable of capturing video in the 720p format, which is the entry-level version of high definition.
