Thanks for taking the time to share the photographs and the movie! Much appreciated!

I'm a bit disappointed by the quality of the stills, they seem to have a lot of grain and a bit blurry. Did you save them with some high compression or are they strait from the camera?

The slo-motion is impressive, but again not that sharp. Was that the 1000fps mode? It's a bit blurry too. Did you use a tripod?

You're welcome. those photos were strait out of the camera, that was 1000 fps, and i don't have a tripod, i think that one zoomed picture would have turned out a lot better if I used one, the road is like 150-200 yards from the office I took it from so it was very hard to hold it still.

I'm going to play with it some more tomorrow and see if i cant adjust some settings to get better quality.

What I've heard (second or third hand, at best) about Fujifilm's HS range is that it's a poor parody of Casio's.

It'll do 320 fps at 320x112 (same number of pixels as Casio's 420fps), and 80 fps at 640x480 (which Casio has done at 120 fps).
So, it's slower in the same resolutions (I can't comment on image quality), and doesn't have the 1000 fps setting.

And while it's perhaps not relevant to us, I also think that having a CMOS sensor on an SLR is a very odd move (no matter who does it).
In the CMOS vs. CCD matter, CMOS is undoubtedly faster, but the CCD is a more mature technology with better image quality. If you're marketing an SLR, then I can't see why a somewhat gimicky high speed function is a better selling point than image quality.

The Fujifilm one you're talking about isn't a DSLR, it's a compact digital with a massive zoom in the style of a SLR.

But still, on proper DSLR cameras, professional ones, say a Nikon D3S, the sensor is still a CMOS type. I suspect it's the (much higher) power consumption of the CCD that makes it unwelcome in portable cameras.

Also, not all of the Fujifilm HS range are inferior when it comes to HS video.

Fujifilm F550EXR/F505EXR/F500EXR/HS20EXR/HS22EXR/Z900EXR/Z909EXR:

320x112 @ 320fps
320x240 @ 160fps
640x480 @ 80fps

Fujifilm HS10/HS11:

224x64 @ 1000fps
224x168 @ 480fps
442x332 @ 240fps
640x480 @ 120fps
960x720 @ 60fps

Casio ZR-100:

224x64 @ 1000fps
224x160 @ 480fps
432x320 @ 240fps
432x320 @ 30-240fps

Casio FH25/FH100:

224×64 @ 1000 fps
224x168 @ 420 fps
448x336 @ 240fps
640x480 @ 120fps
448x336 @ 30-240fps
640x480 @ 30-120 fps

Casio FS10/FC100:

224x64 @ 1000fps
224x168 @ 420fps
480x360 @ 210fps
480x360 @ 30-210fps

Casio FH20:

224×56 @ 1000 fps
224×168 @ 420 fps
480×360 @ 210 fps
480×360 @ 30-210fps

Casio F1:

336x96 @ 1200fps
432x192 @ 600fps
512x384 @ 300fps
512x384 @ 30-300fps

The Fujifilm HS10/HS11 cameras have the same highest fps/res combo as most of the Casio range and the step down is very slightly better than most as well.

It was £440 last year but it's now £250, scores very high in reviews.

Thank you very much Hotwired for taking the time to share the info.
I didn't noticed the Fuji HS10 was also capable of 1000fps. Great :-)
I'm going to compare and read reviews.
