slow motion videos using Pentax K-x

Deal Pentaxians,

I wish to shoot a short video (of my kids) in show motion.

I have Pentax K-x DSLR with the follwing lenses:
1) 18-55 kit lens
2) 55-200 sigma
3) Rikenon 50mm f1.7 (manual lens)
4) Takumar 28mm (Manual M42 lens)
5) SMC Takumar 120 mm f2.8 (Manual M42 lens).
Now I have the following queries:

1) Is there any special mode for shooting slow motion videos ?
2) Which lens should I use from the above list of lenses ?
3) Other tips with regard to lighting etc. would be of great help.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, no. The K-x only records video at 24 fps, you need at least 50 to do very simple slow motion. Of course, you could try using twixtor, but at 24fps there is no magic. It's going to distort the video alot

You sound like a candidate for the K-01.
