Despite the numerous digital cameras which now offer high definition recording capabilities, if you want to slow things down for Matrix-like action scenes, you usually have to sacrifice the resolution. There are somewhat unwieldy broadcast quality, high-speed solutions available, but the TS3 Cine from the Fastec Imaging Corporation puts high definition super slow motion in the palm of your hand. The DSLR-sized camera offers 720p resolution at 720 frames per second (fps), but if you do want to shed some pixels, then up to 20,000 fps capture is also possible.
Canon's curvy new addition to its ELPH digital camera range, the 10 megapixel PowerShot SD4000 IS, is the first to use the company's new high sensitivity (HS) system - said to make the capture of low light scenes a snap. It's also the first in the range to offer P/A/S/M controls for greater photo creativity. It can even add Hollywood-style slow motion sequences to movies, thanks to a super slow motion function.
