Never heard of Phantom Cameras? While the name might imply that they’re of spectral origin, the fact of the matter are that these cameras — and their competition — are amazing high speed video cameras that are perfect for capturing super-slow-motion video clips. The Chronos 1.4 High-Speed camera might not exactly be a Phantom camera, but it can capture the same high-speed slow-motion footage at a fraction of the cost of what a Phantom camera would cost you.
Powered by a 1280×1024 CMOS image sensor with a 1.4Gpx/s throughput, this camera is more than capable of capturing motion at 1,057 fps at full-res and going as high as 21,649 fps at lower resolutions. Furthermore, it features an intuitive touchscreen interface augmented by a handy jog wheel, is compatible with C and CS mount lenses out of the box, uses standard Nikon EN-EL4A batteries, and is available in both color and monochrome-only models.
