Default High speed digital camera

Hi,

I am working on a project that involves filming larval fish as they escape from a perceived predator. I need a camera that is fast enough to record their escape response. I am currently using a camera that films at 30fps, but am looking to purchase a high speed camera that can record at 240fps or more. My price range is $300-$400. Any suggestions?

G'day acoland

I suggest you go thru the dpreview.com site to see which cameras have hi-speed video with stills capabilities ~ but the price range will be your killer

Regards, Phil
