New Camera - Highspeed and HD quality video

Unread postAuthor: Davidvaini » Sat Jun 19, 2010 4:03 pm

I am into Parkour and Free Running and I was thinking the other day it was time to switch to a newer camera.

I was browsing online and I came across a few cameras. My main concern was I wanted to be able to do around 2x slower and still have very good image quality.

Well recording at 30 frames per second (fps) when slowed down looks choppy as the human eye sees at around 24fps.. when you slow it around half speed (2x) its as if it seems like 15fps (mistake me if I'm wrong)

I figured I would want something that records in at least 44fps at 720p. Those were the min specs I was looking for... Obviously 44 fps is not a common number so the next step up was 60fps..

So I searched for HD 60fps and I came up with this camera:



Sanyo VPC-FH1A
http://www.amazon.com/Sanyo-VPC-FH1A-Vi ... 397&sr=8-1

$316
------
1080p @ 60fps
1920 x 1080 60 fps
1920 x 1080 30 fps
1280 x 720 30 fps
640 x 480 30 fps
448 x 336 240 fps
192 x 108 600fps


1080P Footage

Slow-Mo Footage

Now realize that 1000fps is 41 times slower than 24fps..
If you record in 240fps on this camera, go into video editing, and slow it down even more, you still retain high quality and it still looks nice and not that choppy at 40x-60x. (That is what the guy in the above video did)


Now I dont really care as much about the Slow-Mo stuff this camera does as much as the fact that it can record in 1080p, have amazing quality, is cheap and that it can do 2x in that resolution

1080 at slowed 50% down with movement...

The camera also has slow motion playback so you dont need to go into video editing software to see how it would look in slow mo....

This looks like a nice camera, I prefer the EX-F1 though. I imagine it has a bit more "evolved" high speed functions.

The full HD footage on this camera is quite amazing for that prize though. Extremely vibrant and good color balances, even in tough light conditions it seems like.

Nice find!

very nice find but i doubt it can do high speed as good as a dedicated high speed camera, nor do HD like a dedicated camera.

also it is extremly doubltful that is shoots in 1080p, as of the last time i checked no consumer camera can do it. altough it is quite common for them to record in 1080i witch has the same number of pixels and is almost as good

, i can name ma it can shoot full hd in 1080p at 60fps c11ny other examples of consumer camera's that can do this(not this cheap tho), that said it does HD better than any camera at or below its price, it can shoot high speed pretty well too, but thats just a bonus to the amazing HD :P

This cute little camera came as the first result when I searched: "Full HD consumer camera" on google. The model name is "PX1496E1CAM"

The Casio Exilim EX-F1 does it to.

Might be because I live in Norway, my result is in Norwegian but you can see "1080p"

However, let's not get to far off topic, this is not much related to the original subject.
