Capture The Moment

Sun, 12th Dec 2004

Part of the show Superbugs, MRSA, Phages & Bdellovibrio.

Have you ever waited ages for the perfect picture and then missed the moment because you were a fraction of a second too slow hitting the button ? If this sounds like you then Kodak may have the solution with a new invention to be added to their future digital camera range, called BLILO, short for "burst last in last out". Once the BLILO button is pressed the camera continuously shoots pictures at the rate of 2 a second, storing them to a separate 32 megabyte memory card. Once 30 pictures have been shot, the camera starts overwriting the old images with new ones, indefinitely. Once the button is released the last 4 frames taken, one of which hopefully contains the crucial moment, are transferred to the camera's main memory.
