As with many camera releases the full quoted specs do not tell the whole story on a camera’s final capabilities. Our reader Andreas Bernhard pointed us that the Samsung NX1 does have a 120fps 1080p mode included inside the Samsung Multi Motion mode. We previously thought it was just a slowdown of 60p with interpolation but as it turns out it is also sporting a full 120p 1080 mode inside the camera.
The Sony PXW-FS7 Pro camera besides the 4k up to 30p spec also offers a great 180fps slow motion mode at 1080p continuous. We expected the quality to be as good or better than the FS700 and it was the right call. The quality of the slow motion is extremely good and uses a better XAVC codec; And will position for now the FS7 in the 3rd spot of the camera list guide right behind the FS700 displacing the GH4 to 4th place.

The just released sample above shows the fps1000 platinum shooting at 200fps at full 1080p spec of the camera.
You will notice the wide banding present in the shadow areas and we asked the creator Graham Rowan for an explanation and it was readily available. Here is the full explanation:
The fps1000 camera has brought a lot of improvements as stretch goals for their kickstarter campaign. It is close to achieving 5x the revenue goal set at the start. Nearing 92k Pounds and 150+ backers as of today.
