The Phantom VEO4K-PL – Available from Love High Speed with PL, Panavision PV, Canon EF or Nikon lens Mount.
The compact Phantom VEO4K-PL Super Slow motion camera capable of shooting 5-1000 fps at 4K resolution with 72GB of on-board RAM and on board CFAST 2 data transfer capability too, to allow 5.6 seconds of record time at 1000 fps of 4K capture. This will create 224 seconds of 25p playback (or almost 4 mins in 25p!). It's body only weighs 2.5kg and comes equipped with wireless remote control as standard.
4K Super Slow motion camera capable of shooting 5-1000 fps at 4K resolution with 72GB of internal storage to allow 5.6 seconds of record time at 1000 fps of 4K capture. This will create 224 seconds of 25p playback (or almost 4 mins in 25p!) of full 4K resolution.
Until now, The Phantom Flex was the only camera capable of 4K super slow motion capture, however, the Phantom VEO4K achieves this in a much more versatile format, since it is both lightweight enough for shoulder-mounted use (fully stripped-down, the body weight is just 2.5kg) and has a form factor smaller than a RED EPIC. Most importantly, compared with the very hungry 120W Phantom Flex, the VEO 4K only draws a frugal 80W of power consumption. Lower power demand means less batteries, making travel easier and the smaller, lighter size also means that you can mount the camera on a gimbal, crane or jib without issue.
The camera includes a global shutter too and optical low pass filter plus 72GB of on-board RAM and on board CFAST 2 data transfer capability too, to make it perform with the same image performance as a Phantom Flex4K-GS but with the convenient form factor of a Phantom VEO.

At its full 4096 x 2304 resolution the VEO4K-PL is capable of capturing up to 938 frames per second (fps), 1000 fps at 3840 x 2160 or 1977 fps at HD (1920 x 1080). A reduction of vertical resolution will further increase the speed. The sensor can operate in global shutter or rolling shutter mode for increased dynamic range and to eliminate the need for black references.

Phantom cameras are unconventional in that you will typically trigger the recording after the action and then decide which part of the cached clip to keep. There is a save process to transfer the footage from the cache RAM to a storage medium.
The Flex4K uses a CineMag for safe storage, which docks to the camera and is very fast. In contrast the Phantom VEO4K offloads internally to removable CFast-2 cards. These offer convenient large storage but the offload time is slower, so the regular route is to trim the clip in-camera and then transfer to the card, which can take several minutes for a long clip.
The VEO4K does has an advantage over the Flex4K as it incorporates a lightning-fast 10-Gbit connection which dramatically increases the speed at which you can offload raw data from the camera, but you must be tethered to a computer system. Contact us for more information.
