Let's arbitrarily decide 240 vertical lines is the effective minimum resolution I'm willing to accept.

We have found that cannon cameras have a very good fps rate. We have one that was 200 bucks and does up to 60fps looks great on a HD tv... Are you looking for sporting events ? What is the driver behind the 100fps?

@djbowman: I'm specifically looking for something to do technique analysis with, such as for running, swimming, and golf. 60 fps does help, it's just not quite fast enough.

@gluonconcerto: That explains it, I remember you mentioning that you were a runner and went to UCI in the introduction thread.

This Sony can supposedly crank out 240 fps for 3 seconds and then play it back in a 12 second window. They do not give the resolution, the feature is called Smooth Slow Record: http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921666073299#features

Thanks @catbertthegreat, I've had good experience with Sony in the past. I like how it's got optical image stabilization. Unfortunately it's a bit too pricey for me :/

@gluonconcerto: You still at or near UCI? Do they have film classes? Can you grab a couple of their students and a camera? They probably have access to far more powerful and nicer cameras than you could hope for.

@catbertthegreat: ooh another good idea. You're on a roll!
