Intro image for article Phantom Comparison Chart
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.
