    Question Digital Camera -> Slo-Mo Camera??

    Hi all

    i was wondering if i would be able to buy a regular computer camera and be able to in any way write a program that would be able to increase the number of frames per second, lets say to at least 100. I have no idea if an unconventional camera would even be able to handle this, much less how i would write a program to do this. I have a beginner's knowledge of C++. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    yeah you can't do it programatically, it's probably a physical limit of the specific camera.
    PHP and XML

    You coul always write a driver for your cammera, or reprogam it. The problem would be getting enough documentation to do it.

    well, it most definately is the physical limits of the shutter speed that affect you. however, you could pretty easily use a standard camera, and move in slowmo. or go the reverse, and merely insert say copies of each frame between them therefore dragging a scene out.
