Phantom Flex at a Kids’ Water Balloon Fight Makes for Some Epic Slow Motion

Check about Brad Kremer‘s video above featuring lots of summer fun with the neighborhood kids.  As Brad puts it:

So what do you when you have a day off and a $300k camera package sitting at your house? Invite all of the neighborhood kids and throw a water balloon party of course! Duh!

As summer coms to an end and Autumn begins, kids go back to school and dream of warm days filled with laughter and joy. This short film is a reflection of that dream. Shot with a Phantom Flex it captures the magic of the moment. With frame rates of up to 2564 fps at 1080p we see every detail, every smile and every sparkle in the kids eyes. And that is where the magic lies. Within the hopes and dreams of our children.

Locked in a Vegas Hotel Room with a Phantom Flex

Tom Guilmette put together this great video of his night alone with a Phantom Flex camera in a Vegas hotel room.  This camera captures 2,564fps at a 1080p native resolution.

While the footage the camera produces is stunning in its own manner, Tom’s editing makes the resulting video (and audio) just plain fun.  Check out Tom’s story behind the video (and why he was doing this in Vegas hotel room) over on his blog.
