Not sure what forum this needs to go in - so fix me if i'm wrong.

 

Anyways - just wanted to introduce my new toy - the Sony HDR-SR5 High-Def 40gb camcorder. it's pretty impressive, although it's not "full" hd like it is marketed as. but hey, it's still pretty dang good. picked it up at work on open box for $589. it was the display model that no one ever touched because it wasn't powered up :)

 

anyways - one of my favorite features so far is the slow-mo function - i think it's something like 120 frames per second. takes a 3 second clip and makes it 12. here's a slowmo vid i took.

 

the quality is marginal - it gets kinda fuzzy when you do it, but i think that's common on high-speed cameras.

My Dad has one of these, though might not be quite the same spec - 1440x1080 sound about right for the res? Sony AVHC or some weird codec ... hates to play ball ...

 

But, through an HDTV, it records well and it is fantastic to watch. They are good value imo.
