Dale,

Do a YouTube search for 'firelighter'. I saw this example posted the other day and it's impressive. Shot at 240 frames/sec. I didn't realize the V1 had this capability.

V1 can't shoot at 240 fields per sec...
240 frames per sec... yes!

The slo-mo footage isn't progressive, so doesn't that make it 240 fields a sec? (And, I think it's actually 250)

240 / 4 = 60

Pretty sure it's fields, 240 frames would be rediculous.

120 frames isn't THAT unbelievable if it's for a short burst (camera can store that in a buffer)

Thought it was for 12 seconds?

Either way I want an FX7 to test it out :)

The super-slo-mo feature is of such poor quality I find it unusable. It's only good for checking your golf swing or something. It would never work for broadcast, maybe web but you'll see, it's all blocky.

Sorry my typo... got that the wrong way round... it's 240fields per sec which = 120frames per sec.
Sorry for the confusion..!

I've been disappointed with the in-camera slo mo effect.
I think I get a better image applying After Effects Timewarp in post. That adds some softness to the image, but doesn't generate the other kinds of artifacts I see in my V1 in-camera effect.
The one suggested thing I haven't tried yet is to shoot the slo mo in HDV, bring it into the NLE as Cineform CFHD avi, convert the CFHD directly to standard def m2v, burn it to a DVD and watch it on a TV monitor. That's supposed to give a more acceptable image, similar to what you see on the Sony V1 demo DVD.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has done something like this. If not, I'll try it myself and report back.
