Join us for our special Gear Up: Advances in High-Speed Image Capture event in NY!

On Friday, June 14, we're inviting you to a special evening event dedicated to high-speed imaging and lighting technology, including the full Phantom lineup and the new Phantom Onyx. Proper lighting is very important when shooting high-speed, so this event will also feature manufacturer booths on the showroom floor displaying the latest in powerful, flicker-free lighting. Attendees are encouraged to go hands-on with all the gear and get their questions answered by manufacturer specialists as well as our own AbelCine tech specialists. Snacks and refreshments will be served.
