The latest flagship slow-motion Phantom camera from Vision Research, the v2511, has surpassed the frame rate of its predecessor to capture 25,600 fps video at 1,280 x 800 resolution
If you’ve seen a truly impressive slow-motion video, it was likely shot on one of Vision Research’s Phantom cameras.
The Phantom v2511 is the latest in the flagship series of slow-motion cameras that are as expensive as they are sophisticated. Owning this latest model will cost you around $150,000.
Its 25,600 fps frame rate is for capturing video at its maximum resolution of 1280 x 800, using the sensor’s full 1-million pixels.
It’s possible to up the frame rate up still further by reducing the resolution, up to a staggering 1,000,000 fps at a tiny 128 x 32 resolution.
The Phantom v2511 comes equipped as standard with a Nikon F-mount, though it can also be equipped with a Canon EF-mount.
