News producer, volunteer firefighter and STATter911.com reader Adam Bearne sent me a Tweet this morning alerting me to this video posted by cinematographer Greg Wilson. Anyone interested in videography and photography will find this test of the Phantom Flex4K Digital Cinema Camera quite interesting. Even if you are not into cameras, I think you will find this view of a fire very compelling. The video is directed by Brendan Bellomo. According to Wilson, the two were asked by Vision Research and Abel CineTech to shoot the first test footage with the camera still in its alpha prototype stage. Here’s more from Greg Wilson on Vimeo.com:
All the live action footage was shot on March 24th, 2013. Some additional fire elements were shot on the 23rd and 25th of March with the Hebron and Glastonbury Fire Departments in Connecticut. We were thrilled with the camera’s performance at this early stage of its development and are very much looking forward to this camera as it matures prior to it’s release this fall. This is a true 4K RAW camera capable of at 1000fps at 4K resolution.
Thanks to our great crew, including lead Phantom camera technician Edward Richardson, VRI and Abel CineTech for giving us the opportunity to shoot with this amazing new camera system. For more info check out twitter.com/phantomflex4k
