Camera experts - what do you think of this article about high frame rate cameras?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

From the Guardian

 

It mentions models from Canon, Panasonic and of course Casio.

 

I didn't know there was software that slow motions your video after the fact, but it's expensive and I'm dubious of the quality.

 

A commenter noted that the Galaxy Note II does slow motion. Dunno if true or not. Do any smartphone cameras do high frames per second yet?

I agree, for the most part, about getting a digital camera with the best resolution that shoots 120 or 240fps. I actually do own the Casio EX-ZR100 and up to 240fps is all that's needed for me. The resolution is as decribed, just below standard but it's still pretty detailed. Biggest issue is you do need good lighting for HS. It was also pretty hard to find in the US. I actually got mine off ebay shipped from Japan. 

 

I just downloaded an app called SloPro for the iPhone (it's free if you want to check it out) just to test it out. It's not high speed so don't expect too much. It most just slows the video down a certain percentage whichever you choose before you record.

I know some Android phones can do slow motion, this is a video from my EVO 4G LTE on the slow-mo setting.  I had no idea it had it when I bought the phone, but I was impressed with it.

I don't know, but now I really want to know if THIS camera can do manual shutter speed...

60 FPS is useless, 120 is good a good portion of the time, and 240 is where it's at.

The Casio EX-FC100 is good 240 fps, but the EX-FC200s is designed for sports and has 480 fps for high speed capture.

You beat me too it. I went to the Panasonic booth and told the marketing guy I met there during CES this week he needed to add this function. He mentioned there were getting a number of requests for that feature. So hopefully in the next model.

I'm not sure if the original EVO has it, I have the LTE, but for me there was a little "A" in the upper left corner while the camera was open.  You touch that and then scroll down and slow-motion video was one of the options.
