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

9 posts in this topic

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.

It doesn't.

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.

    • The last tee shot with lead leg getting kicked up in the air and all was hilarious.. . Haven't watched the interview as can't turn up volume here at work.   Good luck (dead)man..!
    • Any idea if the over hundred scores with high slopes course yardages are? I am assuming they are not all your home course.
    • 5/25/17: Mother nature didn't cooperate this morning. So I couldn't practice outside... Damn. So I worked on the 75-80% effort swing, stopping at each position in the backswing..  It works better I've found with hitting balls with a slightly more than three-quarter backswing, though it does work to parallel with longer clubs. It's different to me, still getting used to the feeling... But I believe it will be better for my game in the future.
    • Hello all. This is not a google type question, so I'm putting it out there for the humans. I have recently discovered I have been swinging a wood shaft on my driver for the last 10+ years. Yes 10+... Anyways, I'm a big swinger with my drives between 270 and 300 yds. 115+ mph swing speed according to my local golf shop (with my driver). The driver is a Taylormade R7 with an Aldila NV 65 s shaft (stiff). I'm also left handed, hence nobody ever told me I was swinging a wood shaft because I only play with you right handed folk. I now know that a stiff wood shaft is stiffer than a stiff driver shaft, so what type of flex and weight should I get if I want to replace my current shaft? I still want to take the big cuts that I have grown accustomed to, since it is the strongest part of my game (I have a strong scramble presence I need to keep up). I'm thinking extra stiff will still feel looser than my current shaft? I have since picked up and dabbled with a lefty driver with a stiff driver shaft and it felt like my wife's 8 iron (no offense intended). But do I just need to get used to this? Or go extra stiff? Thank you for reading this far. Any input is greatly appreciated.
    • I am brand new to The Sand Trap so veterans bear with me. I recently Demoed The Callaway Epic Driver and hit it better than I expected ( a good 15 to 20 yards past my Taylormade Aeroburner). I have read all the reviews by club pros but for my money the proof comes on the golf course from guys that can tell me if they found any distance over their regular gamer. I know my experience was only one round and I wanted some input before I spend the $$. On a second note: For the past several years I have had my Driver painted (I just couldn't go with all that white on the Taylormade) and would think about doing the same if I purchase the Epic to match my 3Wood and Hybrids. I have read that the "Speed Step" on the top of the Epic is a 3 D decal and not a part of the actual structure of the head. If that is the case I am afraid sanding might remove it. Just wondered if anyone knows more about the "Speed Step"? Thanks.
