Hey, I wish to shoot a tracking shoot in slow motion but still want the option to use it with standard motion (is it the right term?).
My standard motion is 25fps and 1/50 shutter speed.
So, if I'll shoot the slow-motion in 60fps and 1/120 shutter speed, should it work?

Thank you!

If you want to convert it back to normal 25 fps motion, you should shoot at 50 fps, not 60 fps.  You should use a 180 degree shutter, so 1/100 at 50 fps, but if you convert to 25 fps. you might need some frame blending (rather than frame dropping) to get the motion blur to look normal -- because 1/100th is what you'd get with a 90 degree shutter angle at 25 fps.

I’m not very good at the “what should I purchase” sort of question, there are too many variables and I don’t really know the prices of a lot of cameras.
