$118,000, 1,000fps, & Stephen Hawking

“Sure, it costs as much as 47 Canon 5D MK IIs,” writes Uncrate,” but you’d need nearly that many — configured in some sort of crazy, Matrix-like setup — to match the unbelievable 1,052 fps high-speed 1080p recording of the Phantom HD Camera ($118,000).”

  1. What’s notable about this camera is not necessarily it’s speed, but it’s speed AND resolution.
    Phantom cameras are routinely used in research, going up to 100-200k fps. But the image size is silly, like 64×64 or 128×128.
