Director Brendan Bellomo and cinematographer Greg Wilson were asked by Vision Research and Abel CineTech to shoot the first test footage with the yet to be announced Phantom Flex 4K Digital Cinema Camera.
The new camera, which is still not close to be released on the market, films at an astounding 1,000 frames per second at a resolution of 4096 x 2160. The outcome is a slow motion short film that will blow your mind. The details are simply incredible.
“All the live action footage was shot on March 24th, 2013 with some additional fire elements shot on the 23rd and 25th of March with the Hebron Fire Dept. and the Glastonbury Fire Dept. in Connecticut. We were thrilled with the camera’s performance at this early stage of its development and are very much looking forward to this camera as it matures prior to it’s release this fall. This is a true 4K RAW camera capable of at 1000fps at 4K resolution.”
