    after I shoot some video with the p4 and when I play it back on my computer it looks like it is running in slow motion or half speed.
    any suggestions

    What frame rate / resolution are these files you're talking about? And what program are you playing the videos back in?

    lol, that's your problem. If you don't know what FPS you're shooting in and what resolution, you're gonna have a hard time figuring out how to get the results you want. You're probably shooting in 120 fps or something.

    If your computer is unable to handle data streaming at the asking rate, it will exhibit slowness. You need to upgrade your video card to get better results or pick slower video capturing rate.

    Did you film in 4K? If so your computer can't keep up.

    Try shooting in 1080.
