Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 + wifi data plan as prototype tools

It seems the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 would be a very good tool to have in order to prototype my thesis concepts.

It offers goof both spatial and temporal resolution to play with:

1920 x 1080 spatial resolution
60 fps temporal resolution

shooting a 5 sec video at 60fps and playing it back at 10fps gives as a result a duration of 30sec at full hd resolution.

the only problem is that probably it wont interface to be used as a live camera to a pc... cannot be remotely controlled.

other possible solutions are industrial vision cameras via firewire

or finding a way to capture the hdmi output of the camera.

As for the internet wifi connection the Verizon data plan seems to be the fastest one.
