Digicam Hack Simultaneously Captures Stills and High Speed Video On The Cheap — Engadget

As mentioned in yesterdays post the University of Oxford needed to precisely sync high-speed video with high resolution stills. Instead, they hacked together a home cinema projector and a consumer-level digital camera to split every frame of video captured by the camera into sixteen frames.  Once captured the frames can either be played in succession for up to 400 fps video, or assembled into one high-res still image. Although originally designed for research purposes — to capture images of cells or the human heart in action– applications ranging from CCTV to sports photography are possible with the technology. http://bit.ly/cDzWC5
