If you're looking for the best slow motion camera, that can shoot high frame rates, as well as high resolution, then you should take note of the latest release from Freefly.

The new Freefly Ember S5K is a high-speed slow-motion camera that can capture crazy details in slow-motion at a blistering speed of up to 800 frames-per-second continuous recording. Equipped with a Sony E bayonet lens mount, it weighs 800 grams, and shooting Apple ProRes internally. All this comes in a relatively affordable package of just $17,995 at B&H (approximately £14,370  /  AU$26,650). However, the biggest party piece of all is that this camera can also shoot standard 24fps too - so it's a cinema camera and a high-speed camera all in one - sounds incredible!
