Cheetahs at 1200fps on Vimeow

I love slow mo and it is great to be able to do it now on the Nikon 1 series, albeit limited to a low-fi look. Now the technique has gone 65mm - yes medium format sized. The Phantom 65 Gold is a 14bit raw 4K cinema camera. It can shoot 200fps in 4K mode, 396fps in 2K anamorphic (2.35:1 - 2048 x 872) and up to 718fps at lower resolutions.

Using a medium format with stereo lens ended up in two "almost" 35mm images.

Probably what they want to show is that, with proper lenses and medium format, you don't need the expensive and bulky dual system used by cameron or peter jackso but "just" one Phantom 65.

Great article, thanks for the mention. There is little Phantom 65 footage out there. 

 

Here is one film that used the Phantom 65 for some of the shots, the rest of the images were shot on the Phantom Flex.

That Phantom 65 is interesting.... Wanted to read more about it, I can find talk about it from years back, bit weird it's gone from the website. It comes with Mamiya or SuperPL mount and a huge 65mm sensor.. found a clip on youtube of someone holding the chip in their hands:

Isn't it kinda weird that the only (as far as I know) big format video camera is a high speed one? Wouldn't this be a good digital replacement for the 70mm IMAX-camera's?

 

Apperently they use it for 3D, by using 2 lenses projected onto one sensor:

What a shame, wasting that big beautiful chip with 3D... ;)

 

When Red started, they had talks about f*king huge sensors. Like this 617 'brain'... (6x17cm...)

Crazy, awesome, but it never happened.

 

Also the 'modest' Epic 645 never happened.
