    I want to do slow motion HD; something in the 60-120fps area.
    I have a Nikon D3000.


    Can anyone tell me if I need something else or is this done in post?

    Could simply film at 60fps or 120fps and play it back at 30fps. Or 29.9 or whatever it is. Been a while since I did video work, but that's how I handled doing slow-mo stuff as the results were better than the plugins I had to work with.

    I have a D3100 and it's not possible to film at 60fps. You almost need a camcorder for that these days.

    Thanks for the info guys. I dont know why, considering the technology of today, that doing overcranking is so difficult/expensive; seems like something my smart phone should be able to do. If we lived in a perfect world!

    I only want to use overcranking to help teach my 4yo son some tennis fundamentals and be able to review in slow mo.

    -I also can use more videos of people videoing dogs catching food.

    How old is your smart phone? Most recent ones have this.
