    We just got a camera at work that can do slow motion, so of course we want to use it for gun videos :)

    Literally we just set it up on a tripod, aimed it and hit record, then took a few shots with a 1911-22 and an XD9sc. The 1911 is in 210fps and the XD is in 1000fps.

    Going forward we are looking to actually use the camera for serious purposes and showing the workings of various firearms etc..

    Very cool.. any plans for doing shots of target impact? Would love to see how different rounds react when hitting various materials. I know there are vids out there that show it, but hey, it's more fun when you get to film it yourself!

    We do have plans, the way we shoot there is a protective barrier that the camera can hide behind next tot he targets, so they will be filmed :0

    Well really it think it a valid business expense to hire some models and make them shoot the guns :)

    Its a Casio EX-FS10 , cheap and cheerful camera but the slow motion is a bonus feature. They have a varying range of them price and ability wise.
