Re: Need 1,000 fps at least.....

In the past I've done a 1,000 fps video of the E-PL5 shutter in action, but it definitely needs something better than my Casio ZR1000 to do that as things are still blurred frame by frame.

Sadly the Casio Ex-ZR1000 hasn't manual controls for shutter speed and aperture for video (only the Ex-FH100 has it, from the pocketable models, that would fix the blur in the High Speed videos).

And in the case of this model and its successor, the ZR-1200 (and ZR-1100 in Japan) they have added the dumbest implementation of the High Speed for stills of all their HS cameras, assigning it to a Scene mode in Best Shot, so when shutting HS images all the manual modes are disabled.

I say this because you could try with HS still bursts instead of High Speed movies, but to keep the shutter speed as fast as possible the only way would be to force the ISO to higher values than the resultant value using auto ISO.
