Thread: Hi-speed cams

  1. #1

    Question Hi-speed cams

    I was wondering if you guys could point me out a good cam that allows to customize the fps rate while shooting. Since I need to do some scenes in a hi-quality slo-mo, I need a cam that can allow me to shoot up to a high fps count to avoid that jerky slo-mo.
    What does the market have to offer in this matter? and what about prices? I can imagine that isn't cheap...

    If you want to go over 60p expect to pay mega bucks as you are into the realm of low volume specialist gear.

    Even hiring is madly expensive.

    What are you wanting to slow down? Good results can be got with clever editing tricks.

    Phantom V9 from Visible Solutions, USD 84000

    Loads of money as I thought, but it does do over 1000 fps ! That fast enough ???

    Default thank you

    I think that a cam that goes up to 60 fps is good enough since I want to slo-mo to about 40% of the original speed. I already have tried all sorts of technics to get some good slo-mo, but the damn thing ends up jerky anyway, since I am aiming for a truly smooth motion in the air, kinda like the ones used in matrix and the likes.

    Hey,
    So what are those editing tricks to make slo-mo look better?
    I have HDR-FX1. I know it is possible to change "shutter speed" but not the fps.
    So how would I film (and edit) a splash of water, or an egg hitting a floor?
