Shooting ultra-high-speeds for cinema just got a little faster in both frame rate and ISO. The new Phantom T1340 from Vision Research provides four-megapixel frame rates along with high sensitivity. A custom 12-bit sensor offers low noise and native ISOs of 16,000 Mono, and 4,000 Color. Although it does not reach into the 4K realm, it can achieve up to 3,270 frames per second at 2048 x 1952 and as you window down the frame rate can increase to:
* 2048 x 1440 at 4,390 fps
* 2048 x 1152 at 5,400 fps
* 1920 x 1080 at 6,160 fps
* 1280 x 720 at 13,000 fps
The camera also features higher RAM sizes and CineMag compatibility with 144 GB RAM giving you 4 seconds of record time at the maximum frame rate, which ends up being 9 minutes of playback at 24P. The CineMag also allows for transferring the footage out of RAM quickly with the full 144GB RAM buffer transferring in under 5 minutes. (More often the RAM is segmented to get several short recordings, or the Cine is edited before saving to cut down on file size and transfer time.) The CineMag also lets you record directly for long durations at lower frame rates as would a typical digital cinema camera and the file format is Cine Raw, like all Phantom cameras.
Interchangeable lens mounts include: Nikon F, Canon EF, PL. The camera is quite compact in size at only 5 x 5 x 8 inches, and weighs in at 10 lbs with SDI & HDMI video for live monitoring and playback.
