Slow motion on the new Sony handycams: 240fps

    240fps for 3 seconds. Pretty cool :)

    Smooth Slow Recording
    By increasing the record rate from 60 fields
    per second (fps) to 240 fps for 3 seconds
    allowing you to capture 3 seconds of fast
    motion and play the video back in 12
    seconds. This is great for analyzing a golf
    swing or a viewing a bird in flight. In
    addition, record an audio track to narrate
    what is being seen during the video.

    On the V1 you can record 3,6 or 12 secs. Resolution drop and
    compression noise is quite drastic but could be useful to someone.

    I filmed milk dropping into a glass which was fun. A fun gimmick no
    more or less. :)

    The European model shoots slow motion at 200fps (4x50i) US model is
    240fps (4x60i).

    At 3 secs the resolution is 640x360 and for the 6s and 12s setting the
    resolution drops to 512x320 then the image is "up-rezzed" into dvcam or
    HDV depending on which format you are recording in.
