    Are there any 120fps cameras out there that can do 1080?

    I am looking to replace my canon t2i with something that has better slo mo rather than the 720/60fps

    Doesn't have to be a DSLR.

    what are your plans for the footage? You could get a Gopro hero 3+ black; that does 720p @ 120ftps

    The sony FS700.

    You're not going to get 120fps at 1080 in the t2i price range though.

    This and
    That^^

    GoPro is a pretty good option. I use GoPro's quite a bit and while I never considered using them as a regular high speed camera in good light you can get some insane slow motion with 120fps at 720p and it'll scale reasonably well to 1080p in decent light (in perfect light it'll only appear slightly softer), I don't consider resolution to be super important for high speed shots since I won't be shooting an entire thing at 120fps. Also if you get the GoPro you have more creative options for angles, IMO a GoPro is a good tool for any level of film maker.

    That's kind of the direction I was headed but wanted to see what else was out there.

    I am also looking at the GP because I could use a good wide angle lens but the cost of one is about the same as the GP... BUT the GP gives me more creative options.

    Dont forget the only drawback to GoPro is the lens.
    Stuck with that POV throughout the whole shot.
    The HERO 3 has a new option that's better as far as lens views go but its still pretty wide.

    Simply put, there really aren't any "be all end all" cameras.


    I'd get the Go Pro in addition to your t2i. Neither of those cameras is a replacement for the other.

    Not really the same cost....a good wide angle lens is going to still be more than a GoPro3 Black.

    Yeah thats an issue but I've had great success with using plugins that "de-fisheye", Alex4D has a great one for free. Also the narrow POV option combined with the de-fisheye gives you like a 28-35mm equivalent field of view with hardly any warping if done right.

    Exactly. You can't go wrong with a GoPro...its not only a camera for ANYONE and EVERYONE but its a great tool like I highlighted in my previous posts.

    This is what I am thinking. i can use either the ultra wide or the narrow view. There are option with in the gopro, just not ultra wide.

    AND I TOTALLY FORGOT TO MENTION that I already have a 5dii. So this is a B cam of sorts. Sorry....

    Yeah a 5D Mk.II is a very capable tool lol. With a T2i (550D) and a 5D Mk.II you have your two main cameras and with the GoPro you have your highspeed/first person/creative view camera.
