Today I received a Casio EX-F1 for an upcoming project. The reason for getting the camera is for the high speed video it can shoot. For those of you not familiar with the camera, it shoots at 60, 300, 600, & 1,200 FPS. Unfortunately it's at very low resolutions, but for the price, you can't beat that (next up from this is the Phantom Miro at 10k).

I've discovered that at 300fps with a lot of lighting and low ISO, your footage will look pretty good. Even when upscaled to 1280x720, it still looks good.

After I finish the upcoming project, I want to do an in-depth video review on the high speed aspect of this camera. Sadly, there isn't much out there on that part of the camera, and I want others to be able to decide if this would help them for anything or not.

Oh, and I'm new here.

Yeah, the speed/resolution is as follows.

300FPS at 512X384 pixels, 600FPS at 432X192 pixels, and 1200 FPS at 336X96 pixels.

sorry i guess that was vague

sorry i guess that was vague

sorry, i guess that was vague. it think my mind needs some slow motion so i don't skip communicating some of the thoughts. People walking, running, playing catch, close ups of water dripping, birds flying or taking off, pouring water or other liquids out of a can. try them in reverse. i don't know. just have fun. i think the problem with that camera is the sound, right?

The first video was done right after getting the camera, the 2nd was because I would be filming something with a lot of gun shooting so I wanted to get practice. I'll be shooting a bunch of various stuff and putting that together as well.
