Fast and slow motion with GY-HD cameras?

Is it possible to achieve fast or slow motion with the GY-HD camera series? Also, can time lapse be achieved?

Cheers!
Simon

New Nine-Megapixel JVC Everio X Hybrid Camera

JVC had samples of this soon to be released camera that will shoot "Time Warp" style high speed video on their web site (unable to locate it now):

LAS VEGAS, March 3, 2009 – JVC today announced a new dual-use camera that shoots high definition video and high resolution digital still images. The new hybrid Everio GZ-X900, or Everio X, is a small, light, all-in-one camera that offers the powerful shooting combination of Full HD video and nine -megapixel still photos, plus creative shooting functions such as slow motion video and high speed “motor drive” still photography.

10x Slow Motion Shooting, High-Speed Motor Drive Stills
Slow motion video recording is a key Everio X feature. The camera’s high-speed recording function shoots ultra-slow motion video. Any one of three speeds – 120 frames per second (fps), 300fps and 600fps – can be selected; the faster the recording speed, the slower the playback motion. With this function, approximately four-second bursts of video are recorded that are then played back over a period of up to 24 seconds, a maximum of 20 times longer than normal speed.

Recording speed Image size Recording time Playback time
600fps 640 x 72 pixels Approx. 2.4 sec. Approx. 24 sec. (10x)
300fps 480 x 116 pixels Approx. 4 sec. Approx. 20 sec. (5x)
120fps 480 x 270 pixels Approx. 8sec. Approx. 16 sec. (2x)

Simon,
Yes, you can achieve slow motion with the GY HD family.
With the 200 series you can get 60 fps 1280/720P which is rendering very nice slow motion.
The time lapse function it is not present at GY family. But you may achieve it with the DRHD100 recorder ( DV mode only I think) or in the near future with the Flash XDR or Nanoflash recorders.
Good luck,
eugen
