This is also a good option for recording two HIGH DEFINITION (HD) views of slower motion like walking, strength training or for recording long clips like tactical analysis, interviews, presentations or oral examinations to mention just a few. It may work well with faster motion but due to the lower frame rate you may not always get critical points in the motion.

Of course it will very comfortably handle lower spec’d demands as well.
