looking for a camcorder that has all of these features:

- slow and regular motion
- pause button to pause the video and then continue later on without it creating a new file or video.
- attaches to a tripod
- over 5 hour length battery
- under $150
- compatible with mac
- charges with usb (not as important)
- over 60 fps
- cancels out any background noise and wind fairly well (not the most important, but would like to have)


Want to have this for golf, and to video tape my golf swings.


Thank you!

- slow and regular motion
Any video can do that, few cameras have it built in because it doesn't make sense to do slow motion when the file is exactly the same, do it in post

- pause button to pause the video and then continue later on without it creating a new file or video.
Ditto to the above, you just do it in post. It doesn't make sense to have that function in camera. Some let you stitch files together in camera, but why bother when it's faster and higher quality to do it on a computer
- attaches to a tripod
pretty much every camera can. You just need to pick what thread size you need, and even then it's as easy as a trip to home depot to fix incompatibility
- over 5 hour length battery
Not going to happen. You will be looking at ~45min for digital cameras and ~90min for camcorders
- under $150
You need a more realistic budget than that! http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?ci=1871&N=4294548093&mnp=&mxp=150 see? absolutely nothing
- compatible with mac
if you have a card reader you have compatibility

- over 60 fps
You need a more realistic budget than that! (part 2, the you're budget is an order of magnitude too small edition)

You'll need an external mic for that, prepare to spend $150 on that alone.


Basically it goes like this, you're spending thousands on golf clubs and course fees, what makes you think a high end camcorder (which is what you would need) would ever cost that little?

No, there is no such camcorder on the market.

If you want a camcorder with the specs you desire, prepare to pay $1500-$15000
