High speed video options?
I am looking for a camera to record golf swings. The leading candidate seems to be the Casio Exilim series, which do up to 1000fps.

The Exilims do very high frame rates, like 210 / 410 / and 1000+ frames per second, at a lower resolutions the higher the frame rate. So, I'm looking for other options that may offer higher resolutions at more moderate frame rates. 60, 90, or 120 frames per second would be plenty for swing analysis.

Does anyone here know of other digital cameras with fast video support 60fps or faster?

Some other interesting options I have seen (any feedback on these?) are:

Canon PowerShot SD800 IS: 60fps @ 320x240. Higher resolution would be nice.
Kodak ZI6: 720p (1280x720) @ 60fps. This seems like a great option, but I have seen some reports of poor video quality.
