Additional Information about Oncoming Sony Digital Image Stabilization

Published by and Digit Magazine:

"The sensors are capable or photographing high-definition video at 60 frames per second or 300 frames per second at a lower resolution. At present such fast frame rates are only available on very expensive specialist cameras but new CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) sensors, which were unveiled at a conference in the U.S. earlier this year [probably ISSCC'2006], are heading to consumer cameras."

"The sensors might make capturing that perfect shot easier. Because of their speed users will be able to take a series of up to 8 images in an eighth of a second and then choose the best one or grab a better image from a video. Current sensors aren't fast enough to allow grabbing of good quality images from video, according to Sony."

It appears that just 8 frames is a limitation of memory or on-the fly processing. Otherwise I would expect more frames to be captured.
