Olympus i-SPEED 3 (High speed CMOS camera)
Olympus i-SPEED 3
This recently released high-speed camera does not have a DSLR form factor. However, it (pretty much) uses the same technology. It is only a matter of time other DSLR manufacturers offer some of the features this one has.
It uses 1 micro second shutter, CF cards etc. And the best part is that there are no “Rolling Shutter” problems.
