Our experiments at work require two high speed cameras . . . well unfortunately one of them fried after ~10 years of use . . . luckily it was only like ~$7k (sarcasm).
So I'm in the market for a new one, and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. I of course can find a bunch on Google, but with all the marketing I can't tell which camera is actually decent . . .
minimum 100fps, but 200fps+ is better
black/white or color (doesn't matter)
absolute maximum budget at $10k
manual focus . . . filming stuff between 2-3 feet away
at least some low-light capability . . . filming stuff underwater in my basement lab
size/weight doesn't matter
minimum 640x480 resolution
That said, I'm also looking for a high speed camera for personal usage. Required minimum 60fps and no more than $200 . . . anyone know of any?
