Sony Vegas will BUT what is the frame rete that the video is recoded at?
This plays a huge role in if the slomotion is smooth or jumpy.

Anything less that 60fps is not ideal.

It kind of depends on what your end goal is.
I grabbed this video from youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXec7zBaPxA (it's not my video, I just thought the wasps would be a great example)

I used Adobe Premier Elements and made this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO6z5...ature=youtu.be

The first section is normal speed, next is slowed to 33% with option to maintain audio pitch selected, and then both video and audio slowed to 25% of original.

The slowed versions are watchable, but you'll never see the blades slice the wasps in half because it wasn't captured in the original - as said you'd need a much higher framerate in the original.

I've been shopping around and looking for a cheap camera setup to hopefully achieve the same quality as this person with his video.


http://vimeo.com/eidecom/robcherry 240fps

what's my best alternative to achieve quality picture like the one on the video and in slow motion? But on the cheap scale.

I fly helis too and I'd like to see what my helis do when in slow motion, but good quality picture

You aren't going to get near that quality on the cheap.

thank you for saving my time researching. I just thought, it would be nice to have quality video like that on a gopro or something cheap.

Thanks guys

I keep finding references to a sony fs700, and the price is around 7k to 8k to start.

A cheaper compromise would be a high shutter speed - but it still won't get you the effects in the video you showed, and costs a bit more than a gopro. There are camcorders that will shoot at 1/2000 shutter speed. They will capture a sharper image (each individual frame) of a moving object, but the framerate is still in the 60 fps area so the video would still be choppy at real slow speed.

This video shows how it looks slowed down - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=581J_pz2HnY (the canon hg21 is about $1200 at newegg)
