We are producing slow motion video portraits for a large public artwork and need a recommendation on cameras. We are shooting closeup faces in a portrait setting and then slowing them down anywhere from 2x to 6x. I am finding that having 60 frames/sec is massively helpful when using Twixtor/AFX motion blending.
Our current tests were produced using a d800 at 720p60 but I am finding that the video quality is weirdly low, and it looks like an encoding issue. We also need to deploy this as a photobooth rig and the d800 is a) expensive and B) has shallower DOF than I would like due to FX.
Can anyone recommend a camera that does good 60fps at 720p or higher resolution? We would ideally like to use HDMI and encode to disk but other workflows are considerable too.
