Slow Motion eBay Camera Finds – January 2015!

ebaycamfinds

Sometimes the best available slow motion camera is a professional one that is a used piece of gear that is sold for much much less than the original price tag.

We usually steer clear away from these cameras for the enormous prices unless we find huge deals; these still might be too expensive for the average Joe but if you have the required capital and absolutely need a serious slow motion camera on a discount now keep reading:

HSC Take:

So there you have it, things get more expensive as you go up the ladder but some of these deals are about 1/4th of the original cost or even better as there is no exact number quote from the manufacturer.  Much of a drooling factor here.

If you can afford one of these please let us know of footage you produce with it. However we strongly advise you to purchase one of the cameras on our Hi Speed Camera Guide since they are much more affordable. We are also waiting for the fps1000 this year!

Below is footage from the Phantom HD Camera to see what a camera of this caliber is capable of:

have a good weekend! 😉  HSC!
