NAB 2013: First Look at the Phantom Flex4K

One of the most exciting debuts at this year's NAB show is that of Vision Research's newest camera, the Phantom Flex4K. As you can probably guess from the name, the camera's most notable feature is the ability to shoot up to 1000fps in 4K.

Other features include a Super-35 CMOS sensor, 4096x2304 (16:9) resolution, plus an impressive 12+ stops of dynamic range. The small, lightweight body includes controls on both sides and a simple menu display/interface for maximum ease-of-use. Similar to previous Phantoms, it is available in multiple lens mounts - PL, PV, Nikon F/G & Canon EF (powered). With this camera, Vision Research really strove to create a full production machine.

Watch my video above for a first-hand look at the Phantom Flex4K and make sure to stop by our NAB booth to see it in person! Edit: Below, watch the first footage from the Phantom Flex4K, courtesy of our friends Brendan Bellomo and Greg Wilson.

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.
