Japanese pro audio / visual company FOR-A have just announced this high speed monster ahead of NAB. The spec is truly ground-breaking.

Any word on what this bad boy might cost?  I'm hoping it's more RED territory than Alexa.

Meanwhile, Canon can't manage to put 60fps in 1080p in their DSLRs...

Note:"The sensor is Super 35mm sized and one heck of a beast too. It is quick becoming apparently that development on the sensor side is far outpacing what image processors and media can handle despite the advances in cooler running CPUs, GPUs and SSD drives."
Virtually nothing in dedicated Video HD is coming out in anything but Super 35mm, though I feel that DX is a good contender if they can advance the sensor technology up a bit. Nikon? Are you Listening?

Something that makes the Phantom look like an old sluggish device.. incredible!

Definitely interested in seeing how this ends up pricing. Great to see development in this area.

The last scene in the sample footage was good, other than that I think they should enlist the help of the youtube "Slo Mo Guys" for their next video.

The sample footage wasn't interesting, except for the last shot as mjones41 mentioned. But the specs sound awesome.

But one thing I don't understand (nad has nothing to do with the camera) is how many DPs insist on shooting at 360º shutter on a lot of professional work (I can remember entire movies suffering of this like "Public Enemies" or "Captain America", both of which are set in around the 30's/40's and look terribly digital!).


It can of course be an aesthetical choice, but don't ever tell me they're going for the film look if so!

"It is the first ever to offer 4K raw at 900fps. The Phantom 65 for instance tops out at around 200fps in 4K 2.40:1. Here are the key facts…"

 

This sensor is tiny compared to Phantom's 65. So... that is probably why. Also Phantom 65 is old.

I got a rep to talk about the new FT1 at NAB.

 

Sorry about the audio quality.
