If I were shooting surfing and any “extreme” sports, I would DEFINITELY want 120fps slowmo. Totally worth $350 on its own. That’s a 4x slo, with no resolution loss, an easy edit, and no tricky tweening software. IMO that’s more important than 4k right now.

Bear in mind that the 4k cam will likely shoot in HD if that’s needed. And, you’ll really like seeing your from-the-water shots at 4x slowmo!

There is a lot of wisdom in your comments, thank you.
