The fps1000 affordable high speed camera has hit several milestones recently such as shipping the platinum fps1000 and some users actually producing first footage with them. The focus now is on shipping the rest of the gold and silver models which were lower spec and cost versions which were part of the original Kickstarter campaign in 2014 here.
The fps1000 Platinum camera capable of 500fps at 720p resolution has started arriving at the doorstep of Kickstarter backers this week. Production is continuing to fill the backlog of orders and should proceed later on with other models like the fps1000 4k which we are expecting.
One of the first people to get the camera is Peter Carsten an early backer and he has started to post some footage tests of birds in flight with the camera. Peter was kind enough to share his footage and even a sample frame for us to test in our RAW DNG Converter.
