Does anyone know of any cheap highspeed cameras?

Probably around 120fps or something similar...

My mate has a Sony Consumer camera which turns 3seconds its 12seconds but it can only record a maximum of 3 seconds each shot :(


Thanks for you help

The only camera you're going to get to do 120fps is either film, The Red Camera (in 2k mode) (http://red.com) or, a Vision Research Camera (http://www.visionres...p;page=products). The cheapest of all of them is Red at $18k... you can rent for alot cheaper.

Olex,
I have seen these cameras-- the new digitals-- pop up in conversation over on the RED forums; a lot of people doubt they really exist. Got any inside scoops for us?

As for me, I do not take of Kinor digital cameras at my hand.
But, I'm from Dneporpetrovsk and we had experience to use of RED camera ( two commecial shoots) lat stime only. We do not a big centre of filmmaking.

From other side, The many filmmakers from Moskov , St-Petersburg had experience to use of Kinor digital cameras and have very high opinion.
The guys from russian cinematiography forum discuss Kinor too much and show many real opinions from real shooting.
http://cinemac.ru/fo...?showtopic=1484

Kinor's available for rent, versions with speed 200 fps and 700 fps.

The quote from 16.10.2008,

a few days ago , shoot of footages for digital post pruduction at high speed 200 fps.
The lighters ,16 pcs of 12 Kw, to warm of air up to 70 degree of C, the camera work fine...
... For note, shoot of 12Tb of footages at RAW format, total, 5 hoouts of footages.
We had two shpting days, 48 scenes at high speed 200 fps.....

------------------------

The pictures from this shoots.
http://www.kinor.ru/...000000266_1.dng
Shutter 1/400s, T4.3, 200 fps.

Kinor can shoot with shutter 1/1600s.

I think, this can be good confirmation.




The other informatioon :
http://cinemac.ru/fo...?showtopic=2560
12.11.2008 at VGIK, Moskov, Russia, training building VGIK, 3 Vilgelm Pik street, lecture hall 317, time 12-00, will begin of seminar about digital cine cameras.
Will shoow of Selicon Imageing Si-2K and Kinor 4K cameras.
Si-2K will show of russian owner Sergey Mischenko,
Kinor-4K will show of Chief designer Alexander Kitaev.

I think, the many Moskov's filmmakers can take of Kinor at hends and compare of cameras.
This will second confirmation of Kinor digital camera.

I think, Kinor availiable for order, can send e-mail to Chief designer Alexander Kitaev directly, by forum, by

Also, the quality of the image REALLY does deteriorate in that slow motion mode. Trust Sony to add a fantastic feature to it's cameras, and completely ruin it! :(
