I'm shooting a short this fall and I'm gonna be using the sony hvr-z1u and I wanted to get an idea how slo-mo I can go. Think the shot of the guys from Darjeeling Limited trying to catch the train... Anybody have a link to a clip I could watch?
Any input/advice would be great.

That camera does not have selectable frame rates, so you actually can't do high speed at all. If you need high-speed, you may want to look into renting a camera that's capable of it for the days where you need it.

You could do like a poor man's slo-mo that I've seen people do before that doesn't look that bad...where you shoot in the 60p or 60i format instead of 24p and then capture your footage at 24p. Seems to work fairly well but your limited to a "60 frames per second look".
