Jim Geduldick Tests the Phantom Miro at Camp Woodward

AbelCine worked with cinematographer Jim Geduldick to test and collect footage using the new, ultra-compact Phantom Miro high-speed camera. Jim's passion for extreme sports led him to produce and direct a test shoot at Camp Woodward. This unique camp focuses on action sports and digital media, making it a natural choice for the project.

The shoot really put the Miro to the test with many shots requiring handheld work, tight spaces and low light setups. The Miro's ISO rating of 1100 allowed Jim to shoot a night scene with all LED lighting -- five Lightpanels 1x1 kits and five Switronix TorchLED Bolts. Jim used the AbelCine PCU, a simple, no fuss solution for controlling all the main camera settings such as black balance, white balance, playback, trim, trigger and save. On set, Jim switched between an EF mount and a PL mount on the Miro, which meant a lot of choice when it came to glass. The newly released Canon EF Cinema 14.5-60mm T2.6 Zoom in EF, Canon L Series Set and Arri / Zeiss Ultra Primes were all used on the shoot. Jim told us that he thought Canon did an excellent job with their new Cine zoom, and he was impressed by the great fall off, sharpness and minimal breathing of the lens.

The new Miro M320S made its debut at NAB in April. The camera can capture over 1500fps at 1920x1080. Its low light capability (1100 ISO) allows it to produce very high quality images at these extraordinary frame rates.

Tools, Charts & Downloads
Our popular comparison chart of Phantom high-speed cameras by Vision Research now includes the VEO4K-PL model. Like the 2.5K VEO 640S, the VEO4K-PL features onboard media storage using adffordable CFast 2.0 media. In addition to its 4K sensor, the VEO4K-PL also has a switchable global shutter mode with a higher base ISO compared to using the camera's rolling shutter mode. And, at less than half the size and weight of the illustrious Flex4K, we think this camera opens up new possibilities for high-speed cinematography.
