1200 fps

Unless your idea of cheap is 5 grand I don't think you'll have much luck. A few cams will do slo-mo but as the frame-rate gets higher the resolution gets lower. Casio do a few that'll go that high though.

The Casio Exilim F1 can do 600fps at 432x192 and I think they're 600quid. My Samsung R10 was 200quid and it'll do 250fps at that resolution. As a rule of thumb a camera can handle a certain amount of pixels each second, say 50 million, so you can have a hi-res picture at normal speed or a lo-res picture in slo-mo. You actually lose a lot of pixels every time you up the framerate but it's just a rule of thumb.

Hi-def slo-mo is still research equipment. Most sites that sell them don't even put prices on and the cameras themselves don't have buttons, screens, handles or storage. You need to plug them into a laptop to do anything.
