Time to get a high-speed camera

I've been umming and ahhing for the last week or so about getting one of the Casio EX-FC100 high-speed compact cameras (1000fps video 300fpd still images - so you can choose from 30 frames in a burst mode or merge frames automatically to stabilise night shots and zoom images, which would be a big help taking photos of speakers at conferences with something I can keep in my pocket). This rather lovely video of high-speed slow-motion New York is done with the previous generation bridge camera that Casio had last year.

EDIT: I should have included the attribution - I found it on http://procrastineering.blogspot.com/2009/02/wonderful-slow-motion-stabilized-video.html which I clicked through to from the screamingly funny (but not NSFW) Penny Arcade cartoon on Project Natal (later known as Kinect) http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2009/6/5/.
