Not global, alas. But it uses high-speed readout:http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/News/Press ... index.html
Also, this is the image quality of the 1080p at 960fps in this new smartphone sensor:
This is a smartphone sensor?
I'm actually pretty impressed, this used to be the territory of Phantom cameras costing $10K+ ....
Even if I can only record a 5 second clip, this will be excellent for display-analysis and millisecond-accurate lag-testing applications (GSYNC / FreeSync lag testing, using the modified mouse technique
). It's going to be great for display analysis too, including the high speed video of lightboost
I think that before 2020, and even maybe by end of this year, iPhones and GoPros will do 1080p+ at 1000fps. Tiny smartphone lens won't be able to capture as much light as a large-lens Phantom, but for outdoor daylight use, it should be acceptably sufficient given modern backside-illuminated sensors at 1/1000sec exposure per frame.
