A 1920×1080 camera running at 60p is available from Thomson and Sony where a seperate recorder is needed. There is a range of digital super slo mo cameras using single chip imagers of up to 2k resolution, that are capable of up to 3000 frames per second. The images, usually totaling two or three thousand frames are stored in RAM, then downloaded.

As the size of the image plane is much smaller than 35 mm all the resolving power has to be fine-tuned into a small image plane, so both mechanically and optic
