I'm trying to find a consumer digital camcorder that can capture video in slow motion. I'm pretty new to camcorders so I don't know a whole lot about all the nuances, so any general pointers for a novice would be greatly appreciated.
Basically I want to do a small video project, film-noir detective style in low light conditions with a lot of slow-mo shots. I want it to look good, but I understand there is a limit with consumer gear, as there is with my budget - £500 MAX. Rental might become an option but that's a last resort.
I don't intend to have the final video viewed on TV at all - I just want quicktime movies for the PC at the end of the day, so I don't know if that makes anything easier. Also I don't have a load of technical equipment - just USB and firewire ports on my PC, so anything that will just let me plug it in and drag the video file onto my desktop would be best.
So far the only camcorders I can find that has slow-mo is the Sony TG3 which only captures slow-mo in 3 second bursts.
Any help would be really appreciated, I have to admit I'm a total novice when it comes to the hardware side so thanks if you can give me some pointers.
