I've read this entire thread in some depth but have lurked until now... My EX-F1 has arrived. I'm totally indebted to, especially Daniel and Steve for fantastic insight into the camera's functionality. Thank you two so much.

I've purchased the camera specifically for the high-speed functionality. My main camera is the XH-A1 which I use in conjunction with a Letus DoF adaptar. I'm wondering if I could purchase a small adapter ring to connect the Letus onto the Casio and see what it reproduces.. that would be interesting.

My main question is to do with workflow using Premiere CS4 - Import Settings, configuration and best output. I hear you about the iMovies 09, Steve, but I don't have Mac. My loss, but I could really do with a workflow for editing in CS4. I'm getting green screens right now (codec problem, perchance?)

Also, I really liked Daniel's rainy bike clip. Very clear, sharp footage. But I question why put the setting onto STD, rather than HD or HS? STD is only 640 X 480 and 4:3. Surely the trick is to use the best settings for shooting? Or is there a certain reason for STD setting?

I'm liking the footage I'm getting so far, but would like to have full control over the edit process, particularly for high speed footage, in CS4.

Thanks again!

The trouble with shooting at 600fps is that the resolution doesn't look that great. 432 X 192 falls short of a respectable resolution in my opinion. Although you can use Twixtor or Shake plugins to slow it up more and make a cool 1000fps or more. Check this out of a flying baby: YouTube - Slow motion baby toss into sunset. (600 - 1000fps)

Okay, passable at best, but what if I want 600 fps but want to keep the 300fps resolution? For me, 512 X 384 is an acceptable resolution, particularly since it's possible to pull it out a bit and it still looks great. I work with CS4 and using a combination of Premiere & AF, you can use Twixtor to slow it up to your 600fps at 512 X 384 and it still looks great:
