Phantom Flex4K

Designed for the cinematographer, the Phantom Flex4K is a high-speed camera providing exceptional flexibility with its frame rate capabilities and by adapting to different shooting styles. The super-35mm 4K sensor provides sharp, detailed images with extremely low noise and high dynamic range. The Flex4K is capable of shooting from 15 frames-per-second (fps) up to 1,000 fps at 4K, and almost 2,000 fps at 2K/1080p.

The camera lets you customize the workflow that makes sense for your production. The Cine raw format ensures the fastest high-speed capture on set and maximum quality and versatility for post-production. Files are saved to the hot-swappable Phantom CineMag® IV (up to 2TB). The three main 3G HD-SDI video outputs support HD and dual-link 4K video.

Vision Research also has announced plans to introduce in-camera audio recording and Apple Prores HQ to the Flex4K via a firmware update summer 2015.

The full-featured on-camera control interface eliminates the need to connect to a computer on set. All camera parameters can be set from the built in menu on the right side of the camera body, and basic controls can be found on both sides.
