    I have been looking for a camera with slow motion but found that you often have to compromise resolution for slow-mo. The Casio Exilims have a few slow-mo cameras such as the FC-100 ($189 on Amazon) or the FC-150 ($269ish). If you're looking for a camcorder, then Sanyo has a few but you're looking into the $600 range.

    With a camcorder, you pretty much have to look for a camera with progressive 60 frames per second and then slow it down with editing to 24-30 fps to get slow mo. You can get much higher resolution videos but without the super slow-mo.

    Anybody else with any other suggestions?

    Casio EX-FH25 is small and affordable. It is also now a decent all around super zoom travel camera.
