Phantom Flex High Speed Camera

Posted by Scott

Some pretty incredible footage from the Phantom Flex high-speed digital camera shot at 2,564 fps. While this is impressive, it starts to be a little bit less so when you consider the price: around $150,000. Hopefully this kind of performance starts to trickle down sooner than later.

Is there some sort of audio equivalent?

I would imagine you’d need to be recording at some crazy high sample rate…384kHz or something, then playback at varying speeds? I know there’s some processing you can do in MaxMSP to fake this effect (ie: Justin Bieber slow down song), but a dedicated device like this camera that could record like that could be amazing….and expensive…

Well, hopefully with this rapid growth of technology that we’re all seeing these days, something like this should be about… lets say, $2000 in 15 years?

I want 6 of them..

wow, never even thought about that aspect and just heard that slow bieber thing for the first time, amazing. That would be great in conjunction with this camera.

2,564fps is cool but how often will you legitimately need that? You can just rent this camera for those few special shots without having to worry about the $150k pricetag.

Every single rock/xore emo band from 2011 and on will be using this in their music videos. This way, they can slow down the pain and make it last longer.
