Hi there... I'm familiar with Phantom and Weisscam... and a google search then gets me all sorts of various producers of digital high speed cameras...

I'm looking for your opinion of real options out there for shooting HD in at least 1000 FPS..

And preferably a camera that doesn't cost as much as a house...

Many thanks,

Kal

Hy Kal,

if you want a digital camera in HD which didn't cost more than a house, here is my opinion:

Photron SA-2 and PCO Dimax

I prefer the PCO dimax camera, why?
because it's faster than the Photron and Phantom cameras (in HD resolution nearly 2500fps)
Image quality, best ever in market i have ever seen, photron is the worst i know.
And the main reason, i don't know the exact pricing, but around the half price what a Phantom or Weisscam cost's.

Test these Cameras an post your result, have fun with it :)
