Is there any prospect of a new Varicam with faster than 60fps frame rates ?

NAB is coming up in a couple of months. As much of the veneer of Varicam was variable frame rates in HD and that functionality now exists in most Panasonic camcorders (really most HD camcorders- period today) I'd guess the name itself is not getting too much more attention. But I could be wrong...

Good point about the Varicam name. Can't see that being very relevant any more except for the following it had.

I had particularly in mind a 2/3" camera for wildlife production that would bring us back somewhere close to what we had in the HighSpeed Arriflex 16SR - ie. 150fps comnbined with a small format - and the Varicam was the first camcorder to get us a little step in the right direction.

I am not aware of any 2/3 field camcorder that do 1080p at even 60fps. We have been stuck with 720/60p across the entire industry for a over a decade now.
