Well Gerardo... I'll stand a little bit corrected. Apparently there is a camera phone that will shoot 120fps.

BUT... look how crappy the picture is. That's "QVGA" resolution... or only 320x240 pixels. That's a fraction of even standard definition video... and it's actually only 1/27th the size of an HD image. Yes, a full 1080x1920 frame has TWENTY SEVEN times as many pixels as that. It's marginally ok for a YouTube video, but not much else.

What would I buy in your position? I couldn't really say. I don't have any idea what you want a camera for... i.e., what kind of productions you intend it for or what type of shooting you will be doing or why you need the exact features you have spelled out. I don't know your cinematographic expertise level either, or what you are really willing to spend since you have listed a pretty wide range ($2000-$20,000). If you can share any of those details it might be helpful.
