Hi.

Can Amazonians recommend best camcorder for capturing althetic activity (slow motion photography/high speed camera) at about a $500 (or less) price point...?

Would like to be able to work on files in MAC...

Thank you in advance for replies.

There are a few cameras that do have a high speed burst -- but that burst is basically a few seconds from before you press the shutter fully down, not a mode that starts when you press down.

Video cameras, even up to the prosumer range, are designed for television frame rates -- 30fps (interlaced, 60 fields per second -- with some supporting HD modes that might be 60fps or movie 24fps)

Note that the higher the frame rate, the smaller the frame size -- In your price range, maybe

Samsung SC-HMX20C 8GB High Definition Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom
As mentioned in Dennis' post, the 300 FPS mode drops the resolution, and records I think 10 seconds at a time. But then again it's Under 500. maybe even 400 if you get the Refurbished one.
Good luck

I wonder if you wouldn't do better with a different approach. Get a camera with a nice sensor, that can shoot 1080 at 60fps, and then use editing software to produce the Slo-Mo output. I think you can get more bang for your buck, if you toss the Slo-Mo recording feature requirement? Just a thought.
