Hi Cloroxpurex – you may want to consider a modern camcorder with a relatively large 1" sensor (approximately 8 times larger than the traditional camcorder's 1/3" sensor), higher slow motion frame rates than 60p and more resolution than 1920x1080p.
Here is what this camera can do at 3840×2160 (UHD) – 4 times the resolution of HD:
Here's what AX100 720/120p slow motion video looks like when conformed to a 24fps timeline (twice as slow as 60p):
This camera has its shortcomings – it has a 3.5mm mic input instead of the NX30's professional XLR inputs, for example. But, in my view, instead of buying a two year old HD camera, you should seriously consider spending a little more to buy a new technology Ultra HD camcorder that will help you to insure against obsolescence.
Hope this is helpful!
