What about physically overclocking the DIGIC 4 ? I mean by chaging the chrystal next to the processor to one with a higher value.
We could add a little cooler to the Processor. Maybe this would enable us to shoot higer fps in video mode.

G33ggo said the processor doesn't have much overclock room. There are a few versions, one is rigged for speed and the other is for something else (arm site). I think we have the slow proc. Changing the crystal is too much work, not worth opening the camera and might not work.

I've overclocked a bunch of ARM router + phone stuff and if you go past a point the proc just doesn't boot.

Overclocking the CPU could potentially screw up timings (I'm not so  sure actually, but it could happen)

Who needs a full frame sensor when you can get a whole scanner ? ;)
