So I never used to buy cameras for their slow motion, but I’ve begun to notice that I’m limited in my side jobs because of this. Plus, I’d like to experiment and have fun.
But what cameras can I afford for just their slow motion? (100fps and over)
|BRAND||MODEL||MAX FPS/AT RESOLUTION|
|Sony||RX100 IV/RX100 V/RX10 II/RX10 III||960fps/1336×384(PAL)|
|Sony||α99 II/α6300/α6500||120fps/1080p(NTSC), 100fps (PAL)|
|Sony||α7R II/α7s(NTSC only)||120fps/720p(NTSC&PAL)|
|Sony||FS700(cheap second hand)||960fps/resolution unknown, but low|
|Sony||x3000 (sports camera)||120fps/1080p|
|Sony||AS300 (sports camera)||120fps/720p|
|Canon||5D Mark IV||119.9fps&100fps/720p|
|JVC||GY-HM200/HM170/LS300||120fps/1080p (poor sales information)|
|Panasonic||FZ1000||100fps/1080 (apparently there is a 300fps unicorn** version)|
|Panasonic||HC-X1||120fps/HD (it doesn’t specify a resolution)|
|Panasonic||HX-A1 (sports camera)||120fps/848×480|
|BlackMagic||URSA (can be found cheap)(unclear if 4k and/or 4.6k)||150fps/1080p, 120fps/RAW 4K|
|BlackMagic||URSA Mini||120fps/1080p (cropped)|
|DJI||OSMO/OSMO+ (not pro or raw)||100fps/1080p|
|Olympus||E-M10 Mark II/PEN-F||120fps/640X480|
|Nikon||1 J5/1 J4/1 V3/1 AW1||1200fps/400 x 144 (this is correct)|
|Nikon||1 J3/1 J2/1 J1/1 S1/1 V1/1 V2||1200fps/320×120|
|Nikon||KEYMISSION 360/KEYMISSION 170 (maybe)(both sports cameras)||240fps/320p(NTSC), 200fps/320p(PAL)|
|Nikon||S9300/S9200 (models below this are labeled poorly)||120fps/640×480 (vauge)|
|Kodak||PIXPRO SP360 (360º camera)||240fps/848×480|
|Kodak||PIXPRO SPZ1 (sports camera)||120fps/something|
|iON||air pro 3 (sports camera)||120fps/720p|
The Panasonic GH4 is an honorable mention with 96fps, I also didn’t include phones of any kind, or the plethora of the knock off cameras. There is also bound to be brands that I missed, so please let me know what I missed below. This page is a starting point for you to know what cameras to look at, most these cameras do better resolutions at slower speeds. I’m giving you only max frame rates, otherwise this page would be massive, and it shouldn’t be that hard to find, for the harder info, I put a few links below.
I also put as much relevant information that was stated on their pages (hidden pages), like “NTFS”, “PAL”, and “p” only if it was written clearly.
This took quite a while, and it was a mess of pages, hidden facts, and out of date pages, if anybody who writes the blurbs on cameras read this, please make this information easier for your potential customers to get.
**there is conflicting evidence for there being a 300fps version.
***I’m going to go out and buy a nikon 1 camera tomorrow
