Short Description

Affordable High Speed Video
Placeholder The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX99 is the least expensive high speed video digital camera, at $448.00.

Some cameras can record movies at much higher frame rates than normal, which is great for recording high speed events such as sports and playing them back slowly to see what really happened. Slowing the video down can add poetry to fast pace events and completely change how you see the event happen. The higher the speed video the more data the camera has to capture and consequently the smaller the video resolution gets. If you want to record at 60fps you some cameras can still shoot HD if you want 100, 200, or even 1000fps slo mo video you'll need to sacrifice the video resolution, often significantly. Slow motion video is an awesome feature to have on your digicam and is just outright cool.
