Does anyone know of one that really is 720p/60 fps that i could download and test with?
Try vimeo, i think if u create an account some of the videos u can download raw data. I think from youtube it will just download as converted only.

My clips online are for all to view and easy to see I render to a WMVHD resolution size, once you start loading orginal content anyone with a slow connection suffers.

I have clips, but to load up would not work they are tripod or handheld shots with no fast movement, Maybe later when personal time permits I shall load a clip for ya

I had to rule out the Canon's because their max times for 240 fps super slow motion video is 30 seconds, and max of 10 min for the 60 fps. I need 15 or 20 min to tape a match when I play, and I will have to setup the camera, go play 3 to 5 games, then stop it when I'm done.

That leaves the Sony WX9 or WX10 or Kodak Playsport ZX3

I guess it comes down to how much am I willing to spend?

The ZX3's are so cheap that if it works, its a bargain.

The Sony's are a lot more money, but probably a lot better quality.

Well, I ordered a refurbished Sony WX9 for $120 with a 30 day warranty, and a 32gb Patriot Class 10 SDHC card for another $30.

I found that I can buy a 1 yr warranty for $20 or about double that for a 2 yr warranty. Do you think it wise to buy a warranty for it or are they pretty reliable if they work initially?

Either way, I'll post how it works out after I get it...

Thanks all...

Congrads on you cam purchase, its a Sony maj cam not a Hybrid. you will enjoy it very much I did. loved the compact. $120.00 is not abad price when it goes for 200 give or take, and another 100 for the HX9V.

good luck and enjoy
