@fluffy You get an error, and then what? Wait? I think you want a 
lower-res mode that can sustain 100 fps even in low light that wont 
fail on you.

What I'm trying to say is it'll likely come down to a choice between a
 high-res mode that can do sunny-day 100 fps, and a lower-res one that
 can do 100 fps sustained even in low light. An important decision.

My problem with what Harald proposes is it *leaves no way to 
distinguish between these two modes* (*), which means you'll always 
get the former and never the latter. You wont even know the second 
mode exists / is better fps-wise. That seems bad.

*) Unless one goes slumming for lower-resolution modes, in hopes 
they'll fare better on fps, a terrible API.
