World's Fastest Camera Takes 6 Million Pics a Second

Luxury Electronics: A UCLA team of researchers headed by Keisuke Goda recently introduced the STEAM camera as the world's fastest camera. This remarkable device is capable of taking more than 6 million pictures in one second. According to an interview with Wired Goda, it was stated that it is the world's fastest camera. The special camera is being developed for scientific testing and research studies.

STEAM is an acronym that stands for serial time encoded amplified microscopy. The technology eliminates the problem of light sensitivity and speed of the shutter by using infrared lasers to bounce light off objects. The world's fastest camera takes 6.1 million pictures in a single second -- with a shutter speed of 440 trillionths of a second.

The STEAM camera does have limitations at this point of its development. The camera produces pictures composed of just 3,000 pixels compared to multimillion-pixel photographs produced by standard digital cameras. However, according to a recent article in Gizmodo, scientists claim a multi-mega-pixel STEAM camera is in the works.
