NAB 2017: Phantom Flex4K-GS

In this video, Toni Lucatorto of Vision Research tells me all about the latest update to the Flex4K, a Global Shutter option. This important update is the first to the Flex4K system since it was released around three years ago.

The camera retains rolling shutter capabilities, so you can choose between rolling and global options depending on the needs of production. Rolling shutter mode provides the full 12 stops of dynamic range, while global shutter provides 9 stops of dynamic range with a boost in ISO. All existing Flex4K cameras can be outfitted with the global shutter upgrade.

Vision Research also released new Phantom media, the CineMag IV Pro, which is compatible with all existing Flex4K cameras. This mag was designed specifically for ProRes encoding. Clips will be saved faster to the media, and you are able to record at even higher maximum frame rates directly to the mag.
