Phantom HD


Phantom® HD

This new Phantom HD is not just a high-speed camera, but an instrument that gives the cinematographer 35mm depth of field either at HD or 2K resolutions! The Phantom HD now combines the visual quality of high-definition imaging with the high frame rates of specialty cameras.
Whether your imaging needs encompass broadcasts of rapidly moving sports events, the production of commercials, a music video, an award-winning documentary, monitoring a rocket launch, or possibly you are an innovative cinematographer working on a special film project that needs "a new look" to tell the story, the flexibility and virtually limitless control of the Phantom HD will provide you with outstanding results.


Main Features
The Phantom HD Gold is a production-friendly, high-definition, digital camera compatible with HD viewfinders and monitors.  When used in the HD format of 1920 x 1080, frame rates as high as 1000 frames per second can be achieved. Higher frame rates are possible at reduced resolution.   Higher resolution is possible (2048 x 2048 pixels or 2048 x 1536 pixels) at reduced frame rates.
The camera records images to internal 16 GIG on-board solid state memory and can be immediately played back directly from the camera without the time consuming process of file conversion or downloading.  Once viewed the content of the internal on-board memory can be trimmed and saved to a laptop or lunch-box computer hard drive, or to the soon to be available Cinemags.  Either of these steps will take time, however, by trimming the content to the usable portion, the duration of this step can be minimized  The Contents of the memory can also be played or recorded over single (4:2:2) HD-SDI outputs to a recorder, disc array, or other HD-SDI capture device.
