      Hi. I am looking to buy a new camera in the price range 1000-2000 dollars. I've had a look at the 6D, and i really like it but i would like a camera where i can change the fps. I would love to have one that shoots up to around 100-120 fps or so. i love making slowmo effects and so on. 

      If you have any suggestions or question, reply and i'll try and answer them! 

      Thank you! 🙂

      Hi bnine – the best high definition, high frame rate camera in your price range is the true 4K Panasonic GH4.  This camera has 4 times the resolution of the 6D, a headphone jack, shoots at up to 1080/96p and can produce film-like results like this (slow mo starts at 1:30 and 2:08):

       

       

       

       

      The next best option is the soon-to-ship fixed lens UHD "4K" Panasonic FZ1000.  This camera shoots at 1080/120p.

       

      Here is what this camera can do at 1080/100p (UK version only goes up to 100fps): 

       

       

       

       

      Third best option is the Panasonic V750 camcorder.  It too records at up to 1080/120p.

       

      Here is what it can do (again, UK version at 100fps):

       

       

       

       

      Hope this is helpful!

      Thanks for the quick reply! I havent had a look at the gh4 before now and it really looks like a kickass camera! But why doesnt the 6d or 5d support different fps? Is it just me looking for something thats not common or is it just not that normal to have that option? 

      Thank you!

      nice comparison, the slow mo on the gh4 looks really impressive!

      You can get higher frame rates with Canon cameras – but like everything else from Canon, it will cost you some serious coin.

       

      You have to pay $3,000 to get a headphone jack from them on a DSLR (the 5D Mark III has one, the 6D doesn't).

       

      You have to pay $9,999 to get 1080/60p on the Canon 1D C (which is also their least expensive camera with 4K video).

       

      You have to pay $19,999 to get 120fps on the Canon C500.

       

      They reserve high end video features for their most expensive cameras.  They don't have to innovate or provide the latest features at the low end because everybody has heard of Canon DSLRs and they're already selling plenty of cameras.  They have no need to innovate because consumers don't force them to.  As the number one seller of DSLRs in the world, they're not really motivated to give consumers what they want.

       

      As the Canon rep said to major Canon blogger Dave Dugdale at NAB this year in reference to new video features, "If the market demands it, we'll put it in, but we're going to keep all of that stuff in the higher-end line…"

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Well, so far, Canon buyers are not demanding these features.  They continue to buy Canon cameras – even without 1080/60-120fps, focus peaking, headphone jacks, etc.

       

      Canon loyalists would rather modify their cameras with third party firmware to get a semi-functional imitation of advanced video features than sell their Canon gear to buy cameras with these features built-in.

       

      So, until they feel pressure from the market, Canon will feel absolutely no incentive to put advanced video features in affordable DSLRs.
