Hello everyone,
I am brand new here, and this is my first post.

I am thinking about the Eclair GV-16, since it can do such high fps (up to 200). However, I have heard mixed things about it. The undertone of some of the things I have read before is "be cautious". Is this simply because this is an older camera? I would be most appreciative to hear comments about this model, and it's suitability for doing sound as well as slo-mo.

Many thanks.
