Fighter Jets captured in 4K Slow Motion with 600mm Lens!

The great slow motion YouTube channel Warped Perception has created what will probably be the best new high-speed video of the decade.  By marrying what looks to be a Vision Research Phantom Flex 4k with a Canon 600mm F4 L lens for a killer and expensive combination, they have been able to show things rarely seen in regular footage like stress on the fuselage and air dynamics impacting the aircraft as they cross paths.  Congratulations to WP for creating such an awe-inspiring video!

New Phantom Camera 1080p 20,000fps in 2018?

Vision Research the creator of the Phantom, has posted a new Christmas Ornament slow motion video that hints at a new camera release for January 2018. From the looks of it, it may be capable of 20,000fps at 1080p resolution. When you look at the footage sample the resolution does look very well but it may be 720p if you really nitpick the edges which look somewhat aliased when played back at 1080p.  Whichever the case may be 20k fps at HD resolution brings in an amazing performance and probably a high price alongside it.  Happy Holidays! -HSC

The intricacies of flight, hovering and coping with the environmental elements that hummingbirds have to fend off and how they accomplish it are now being deciphered with the help of 4k Phantom Flex cameras in great detail mainly shot by naturalist filmmaker Anand Varma.  This is all part of a recent National Geographic story on hummingbirds here! → Continue Reading Full Post ←
