i'm looking at getting a high speed camera. i'm not producing blockbusters....just wanting to record some visuals to show in my physical science classroom. i've seen 'Phantom' and 'vision' something companies...but they don't list any pricing info.

what do i ''need'' to show balloons popping, lightbulbs shattering, water droplets, etc.

i'm thinking 512x512 is plenty of pixels for what i would be using it for.

thanks guys.

512x384 video at 300 fps
432x192 at 600 fps
336x96 and 1,200 fps

$1000, good luck!


Or, try a strobe light with a reasonable DV camcorder on a manually set high shutter speed?
