Samsung Exynos 9 8895 Series 4k 120fps Capable!

Samsung Exynos 9 8895

The new Samsung  Exynos 9 Series 8895 Chipset for smartphones has impressive new specs.  It claims the most advanced 3D and general processing performance for use in flagship smartphones. What interests us a lot is the direct claim that the chip can handle both recording and playback of 4k video at 120fps.

The UHD 4k resolution is 3,840 by 2,160 pixels or 8,294,400 pixels rounded up to 8.3MP per frame.  At 120fps this equates to 995 Megapixels /sec or near one Gigapixel.  This translates exactly to 480fps at 1080p full HD resolution or 1080fps at 720p.  This is quite astounding for bandwidth specs for a phone and opens the door wide open for real super slow motion on Samsung Tablets and Smartphones.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

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.

fps1000_4kBodyEFmount

The fps1000 May update shows for the first time the camera case with a compatible Canon EF mount attached of the Platinum 4k model.  However it is confirmed as well that some Platinum standard models which have a top recording rate of 720p HD at 500fps have been shipping in small quantities to backers.

There were some heat issues with the Platinum 4k when pushed to the higher frame rate spec and a new board with the corrections is already shipping back from manufacturing to be tested. This should be the last revision of the board and final testing should begin.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

The fps1000 Camera is reaching a new milestone today with the first Silver Gold and Platinum basic models displayed in full manufactured case and final packaging. These will be ready to ship at any moment.

The first units will be of smaller sensor size as expected with 4k and Double Platinum  coming soon after. The Hex Platinum Camera will be last according to the current production line-up.   All of the cameras shown today are Battery only and will not work with a power supply.

fps1000FinalCMount

The fps1000 camera created by Graham Rowan on Kickstarter has had a few setbacks but seems to be getting close to shipping form with the latest update.  The early Kickstarter backers of the Gold, Silver and Platinum will probably be the first to receive the camera with a C Mount metal port as seen in the image released by Rowan.

The case is now in final form and it is ready to be shipped in battery only configuration. Notice the fps1000 brand on the upper right corner. For those wishing to go stealth, a small piece of dark gaffers tape can cover the brand name easily. The AC adapter version is still yet to pass EMC certification due to some leakage issues in the last test.  For owners that are content with the dual 18650 Li-Ion battery only version of the camera, shipping will start as soon as packaging arrives.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←
