We are doing an in depth review of the affordable edgertronic digital high speed camera that should be published soon, however one of the tests involved showing how the shutter curtain mechanism works on the Panasonic GH4 at different speeds. The edgertronic camera was loaned for this review and we thank Michael Matter of Sanstreak/edgertronic for providing the gear and technical support for this undertaking. A big shout out to The Slow Mo Guys for partly inspiring to record this footage. Enjoy the video…
Panasonic Lumix GH4 Shutter in Slow Motion- edgertronic camera:
The Monochrome version of the edgertronic high speed camera is now $200 USD cheaper due to a price cut based on higher than expected sales for the model. From an initial $5,695.00 to a now $5,495.00 – This puts it in parity with the color version of the hardware. The Monochrome version is more sensitive to light and it is a better fit for resolution and light constrained needs. Many scientific applications work well with monochrome cameras as the Bayer pattern is scrapped for a full resolution black and white raw image that preserves the full linear res.
Edgertronic Quote “The monochrome camera has been selling very well in the industrial, scientific and research markets. Due to it’s strong sales, we’ve been able to negotiate a better price on the monochrome sensor and pass the savings on to you. So, now both color and monochrome are available for $5495 (shipping and options are extra of course).”
As many of you know the edgertronic hi speed camera is still in the #1 position on our HSC Camera guide.
