It's only when you further slow down the video (up to 20,000fps) that the image size starts to shrink."</em></p><p><em><img height="353" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1303324567.usr15670.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="600" /></em></p><p>Want real high-speed footage instead of pseudo slo-mo provided by <a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/107773/1000-fps-videos-from-your-digital-video-camera.html" target="_blank">software plugins</a>? Here is an option, courtesy of Fastec. The TS3Cine does 720p HD video at 720 FPS, and chews up 8GB of storage in 13 seconds while doing so. Comes in C-mount or F-mount (that's the Nikon mount), with an optional PL mount for mounting all your cine or adapted lenses. Of course, a hardware solution like this is going to cost, so instead of the US$300 for the software plugin, prepare to fork out a cool US$30,000 for the camera instead. Or you can rent it at US$625 a day if you're lucky enough to be in the Boston area.</p>
