4.4 trillion frames per second.  Pretty interesting article (my comparison to the 1DX is only a joke, please don't freak out)

So, one second of real-time would take over 5,800 years to play back at 24fps.

Could make for an awfully boring movie!   :o

It's bad enough trying to pick the best shot out of a 12 FPS burst.  I think I would go blind trying to best shot from a 1ms burst capture with this thing ;)

If this superfast thing doesn't have 15 stop DR, I'm gonna switch to Nikon.

I heard that Nikon has the same camera but with 2 more stops of DR. It must be true because DxO says so and has all these graphs an' stuff.

I am writing a sharply-worded letter to Canon as we speak.

So would I since A hard drive would overflow and I lose most of my one second burst ;). Maybe a truck filled with hard drives  ;D.
