In this Instructiable I will show you a camera (Casio ZR200) that you can buy for $150 that can do slow motion - 120fps, 240fps, 480fps, and 1000fps!
I will also will show you be best way to film with this camera, also I'll give you some very important tips on filming slow motion.
You can Slow the videos down even more by using Twixtor or time warp (in after effects) They can slow the videos down to around 10000fps by adding extra frames.
Here are some examples of what I have filmed and the capabilities of the Casio Exilim ZR200 if you want to see more examples go to the last step (4).

Step 1 - The Camera
Step 2 - Slow Motion Filming
step 3 - Editing
step 4 - Examples

I would highly recommend watching this video to get a good idea of the capabilities, thanks :)

Step 1: The Camera

There are a few cheap slow motion cameras but this is by fare the best and the cheapest. Its by Casio and is a quite well made camera and its great for photography as well as slow motion, its 16mp and has a 12.5x zoom. The only problem with these cheaper cameras is that the resolution isn't as good. If you buy a 1000fps camera that has good resolution you'll be paying around $8000 to $10,000. You can use software to improve the quality as well.
The slow motion setting can be easily changed in the menu of the camera, it can also film in full HD. 
I would highly recommend this camera.
Here is a link to it on eBay selling for $150 (price may slightly very) - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/COMPACT-CAMERA-CASIO-EXILIM-EX-ZR200-BLACK-/261206759441?pt=ES_Cámaras_de_v%C3%ADdeo&hash=item3cd122d811&_uhb=1#ht_500wt_1219

Very cool, I'm going to try this for firearm development.
<p>I am fascinated by your comments,could not find a date so maybe old - however! for me it is relevant today 31/3/2015. I would like to get into communication with you as you seem to have the knowledge that suits my current project interest. I am a freelance Electronic Product Creation Architect ( Engineer ) and I want to create a low cost 1000 images per second camera that is also a hybrid in that by a simple switch morph can be 4K 30 IPS family video camera like the GoPro.. I am also now looking for a Casio ZR200 as you recommended - no luck so far.</p><p>Lee Tracey</p><p>UK - dvr@dsl.pipex.com</p><p>44 (0)1691 659986</p>
