4K Video At 1,000 Frames Per Second Will Melt Your Eyes

It's an unwritten rule that everything is better in slow-motion. But there's a good chance your eyes aren't ready for the next level of awesomeness from Phantom's new Flex4K camera that can capture an astounding 1,000 frames per second at a resolution of 4096 x 2160. In other words? Every last detail captured in super, super, super slow-motion.


In fact the Flex4K can capture footage at anywhere from 23.98 fps up to 1,000 fps, but no one's going to be using it to shoot a talking head drama. This camera's destined for a life of filming explosions, crashes, and other split-second events that deserve a more detailed look. A Super-35 CMOS sensor inside facilitates over 12 stops of dynamic range, and if you dial the camera back to a still impressive 2K resolution you can further double the frame rate to 2,000 fps. No wonder it will start at $109,900, with options pushing it as high as $164,900.
