    Hello everyone,

    We have searched extensively and haven't found a good info,
    We are looking to to capture reasonably fast automotive movement, and very fast human movement.
    Could anyone offer their input ?

    Some more specifics about what we are looking for;
    - want to keep the price under $3k ( No REDs or Phantoms needed)
    -HD 1080 or 2K resolution
    -NO Tape media, but otherwise HDD, removable flash, or MiniDV is fine
    -Slow motion feature (120fps or more at more than 90 seconds) (also I know about the Sony's that do 3sec we have a FX10000 and it is horrible )
    -Prefer Not AVCHD format as Ive read about poor performance on PCs, but I could make do
    -I shoot mostly outdoors in good light ( with no control over lighting )

    -The footage will end up both on the internet and sometimes in TV broadcasts or on DVDs so...
    -Format that edits well with Adobe Premiere
    -Highly prefer Progressive scan footage
    -minimal motion blur
    -Image quality isn't my first priority, but motion quality is

    Thanks in advance for your input!

    Hehe... you want all that for 3K ?

    We have an Epic and Scarlet and even the Scarlet isn't the greatest for 120fps and resolution as it does it at 1K cropped.
    So ya you need to add a zero to your budget most likely if you want a non burst/cropped high speed camera.

    But hey, if you find something let me know please.

    Hmm. The Sony FS700 meets the fps, but I don't think it quite fits your budget. :(

    FS-700 shoots in burst for 120 fps for 16 seconds at a time so it's a little difficult for slo-mo and aerial work.

    With a remote trigger it's pretty easy to record hi-speed with the FS700.

    Yup true, as long as your happy with the time limit the rest of the 24p - 60p modes are wonderful.
