Cheap high speed video

The thread about new high end high speed video cameras has got me thinking... mostly about how I'd like a high speed video camera for fun!

Does anyone have a good picture of what is available in the consumer/prosumer market? Minimum specs I'd be looking for is 120fps @ 640x480 though pref 240fps @ 720p Price range? Less than $10,000... hopefully MUCH less. :)

Casio has some options. Res goes down as speed goes up.

Doing some Googling, I found the JVC PX1 which does 300fps at 640x480 for about $1200. That seems to be the best bang for the buck so far.

I talked to the guys High Speed Imaging Product Search, the cheapest 720 500fps starts at $8K
