Watch the World’s Fastest Camera Car in Action

The world's fastest camera car is a $200,000 Lamborghini Huracán dubbed the "Huracam" that was recently modified to have a gyro-stabilized camera rig on its frunk. Here's a 1-minute video showing what this beast of a camera car can do.

Profoto Introduces the Pro-10, The World’s Fastest Flash

Profoto is on a speed kick this Photokina. First, they announce the D2, the world's fastest TTL monolight. And now, less than a week later, they've topped everybody yet again by introducing the Pro-10 studio generator: the self-styled "World's Fastest Flash."

Toshiba’s New microSD Cards Set a Speed Record, Feature 8x Faster Write Speeds

As cameras get smaller, one of the places they can choose to save space is in the memory card department. A great case in point is the new Nikon 1 J4, which ditched standard SD cards in favor of their smaller micro counterparts.

The problem with this move is that microSD cards tend to be much slower than standard SD, but that might not be the case for too much longer thanks to Toshiba.

The Blazing Fast Autofocus Speed of the New Fujifilm X100s

When Fujifilm announced the X100s last week, it made the bold claim that the camera had the world's fastest autofocus system among cameras of the same class. Sluggish autofocus was one of the big complaints owners of the X100 had, so for this latest refresh the company focused its attention on making the camera faster.

Want to see how fast the new AF is? We captured the short video above during a brief hands-on time we had with the camera. It doesn't show an in-depth test or much variety in subject matter, but should offer a taste of what "world's fastest AF" looks like in the flesh.
