Slow Motion Record

I'm having alot of fun with the Smooth Slow Motion Record Function on this camera. I have the ability to record 3,6, or 12 sec Super High frame rate clips at FULL HD resolution. I haven't played with one this good yet. It may come in handy in a few real life situations and not just fun tests. I'll post some samples up later.

Good to hear. That was one of the features I most wanted to hear about as I contemplate purchasing this camera. Is there just one overcrank speed? So if you record the full 12 seconds, how long does the clip play when you view in slow motion?

Sony aren't too good at promoting the features of their cameras.
I heard the slow motion mode mentioned only once so I thought I'd imagined it.
It wasn't even clear for a while that the NX5 had SD slots!

From What I can see, when you record the 12 second interval on the smooth slow record, your clip once imported ends up being 48 seconds. I am uploading a few clips soon with soe samples.

Slow Motion is found in MODE---CAMERA----SLOW MOTION REC-----Choose Storage type-----Choose 3,6, or 12 sec lengths. Done

Note. The Slow Motion record feature will only work in 1080 60i mode or I assume SD 60i as well.
It IS buried pretty deep if you ask me. Maybe I'll assihn it a button if it's possible.

Slomo-Mo Sample


Filmed at 1080 Smooth Slow Motion mode at 3 second option.
ends up being 120fps when recorded.

Nothing altered, just clips assembled and a music track thrown down. Tested with my new Home built 3' Slider at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano , Ca

Not too much. I CAN tell the difference when it is viewed on an HDTV but pretty good. The 6 and 12 second options degrade the video more.

Here is where I got the guide for the DIY Slider. Costs about $180 after all parts and workes great.
