Spellbinding 1200fps slow motion from the Phantom Flex and the mysterious 65mm Phantom 65 Gold

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 at 400fps, albeit limited to a low-fi look (the 1200fps on that camera is extremely low resolution!). 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.
