Thoughts on a small B Cam? Gotta have some slomo

Hello! I have a c100 and am looking to add a camera that can do some slomo to my arsenal. What are your thoughts, I've really been looking at the a6000 or gx7 but, what's your experience with these little guys for stills and more importantly, slow motion?


What is more important ? Image quality or high-speed frame rate ?

The $600 Panasonic V750 camcorder shoots 1080 HD at 120 fps, but I doubt the image quality will be anything close to your Canon C100.

Most mirrorless/hybrid cameras that do slow motion at 96-120 frames per second, will do so at lower quality than normal 24/25/30p full HD. Examples: GH4, FZ1000, Sony A6300. So while these cameras are small, the slowmo quality has a resolution which is more like 720p than 1080p. You'll find plenty examples on YouTube like these:
