High specification, compact Phantom 4K 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 only weight 2.5kg and a wireless remote control option is also available.

Note that Phantom Introductory video and 2 x instructional videos are uploaded to the video tab

Free Software for download, playback and also image rendering

Phantom PCC software provides the main software application that allows users to get the most out of Phantom cameras.  While many newer Phantom models have On-Camera Control and remote control capabilities, PCC is the only place that controls every camera function on every Phantom camera model. Fine-tune the resolution, frame rate, exposure, memory segmentation, trigger modes and automatic functions prior to recording. PCC also makes it easy to work with synchronized cameras, manage Phantom Cine raw files and convert files to the format that makes sense for the final project. Click on the link for free download
