poor man's motion capture system

How many images/s could a digital camera take if it were rigged to take infra-red imagery?

I'm wondering if a few digital cameras rigged to shoot infrared might be used to make a poor man's motion capture system (I work in 3D animation). Do you think the cameras could provide 60 updates/second for high precision motion capture?...

Any thoughts on this idea?

Not sure exactly what you mean. But knowing that your digital camera uses the BP-511 battery pack, I would guess you have a Canon Digital Rebel series or a Canon 10D series digital camera. These cameras can only shoot between 2 to 5 frames a seconds. That doesn't quite meet your 60 frames per second criteria.

Maybe what you want is a camcorder? Some Sony Handycam's could capture infrared images. Camcorders shoots 60 interlaced frames per seconds and does meet your criteria.
