4K at 1000 fps thanks to the amazing new Phantom Flex 4K by Vision Research! - motionVFX Blog

4K at 1000 fps thanks to the amazing new Phantom Flex 4K by Vision Research! - motionVFX Blog:
4K at 1000fps? Not a problem! Only a few days ago we wrote about the FT-ONE (here) and now Vision Research reveals the exciting new Phantom Flex 4K camera! There's one big difference though - the Phantom Flex 4K will cost $140,000 with a 2TB CineMag, so probably a little bit more than the Japanese product. But on the other hand with any Phantom Flex camera you know what you pay for and you can always rent one if you want to shoot some slowmo scenes. The new camera is not final, so some specs might change and new features can still be implemented, but Vision Research presented a working unit at NAB. The camera should be out in October, so there's still enough time to make it even better - can't wait to see how it will shape up! And here are two videos that will give you a good overview of the camera - there's some very nice first footage here that was recorded by director Brendan Bellomo and cinematographer Greg Wilson who were asked by Vision Research to shoot it. The camera was a little more than a week old and it was an alpha prototype, but still - this looks awesome!
