Hi Libi, I have allot of experience with both HycamII's and Locam's
which are similar and have worked on hi framerate jobs (8-12000 fps)
what questions do you have?

My first suggestion is get as much tungsten lighting as you can, I
shot a 360fps shot a few weeks ago with a LoCam using Tri-X reversal
(that I cross-processed to negative) the area photographed was about
2sq. ft. and I used 2 2K Mole's and rated the stock at 140iso... I
read about 1400fc at my subject.

If you descrive the setup I could help with it..
