Digital camera with slow motion video

by nvu5 / November 23, 2008 4:04 PM PST

I've been searching for a couple of hours for digital cameras that have slow motion video capabilities. I was told Canon makes several but can't seem to find them. Can anyone suggest any cameras that can record and play back video in slow motion?

Slow Motion
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / November 23, 2008 11:44 PM PST

To achieve slow motion on play back you have to record at a high frame rate.

Most digital cameras struggle to get 30 frames per second (which is normal speed).
Some can record at 60 frames per second but only while in 320x240 mode.

There is one high speed digital camera that can probably do what you want.
It can record video at 1,200 frames per second.
It can take still photos at 60 pictures per second.

The Casio Pro EX-F1

Here is a link to a review:

It will cost you about $900

Hi there,

While my Digital 8 Sony Handycam doesn't have a high speed record facility it does have a slow playback mode activivated from the remote control. I have activated that mode when transferring video from camera to edit program on my PC. I have also put the camera in Pause mode while continuing to record to the PC. It's a compromise that won't handle all situations but it is useful at times.

snapshot2, Dave,

Money's getting tighter around here so this is definitely on the back burner for now. However, thank you for your replies - I'll keep your suggestions in mind when I resume my shopping.
