Check out this video of ballet dancers shot at 1000fps for some super slow motion action.
The GC-PX10 features a 12.75MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor and captures 1080/60p video at a 36Mbps sample rate. The 10x zoom lens covers an equivalent focal range of 43.3-433mm when shooting video and 37.4-374mm when shoots stills. [Read more…]
P+S TECHNIK’s new PS-Cam X35 is out. It’s a serious piece of cinema gear from Germany that shoots 1080p video at up to 450fps. [Read more…]
The JVC GC-PX10 is a follow-up for “select markets around the world” to the (Japan-only) GC-PX1 that was introduced at CES this year as a concept model. Aside from the still image resolution (12MP vs. 10MP), the specifications, body and controls of the new GC-PX10 appear to the same as the GC-PX1. [Read more…]
I’ve been trying out the Nikon Coolpix P500 for a couple of weeks or so now. Similar to its predecessor, the P100, the Nikon P500 captures VGA-quality video at 120fps and QVGA-quality at 240fps. While both are fun, I find the 120fps at VGA’s 640 x 480 resolution much more practical for sharing on TV sets or online.
Below is a short sample of some clips I shot at both frame rates. Note that the 240fps footage has been up-rezzed in post from its native 320 x 240 resolution to standard VGA 640 x 480 resolution in order to match the 120fps frame size.
Check it out below. [Read more…]
Eric Kessler let Philip Bloom take his new RED EPIC for a spin and also volunteered to be a test subject while members of the Kessler Crane crew threw glasses of water at him. The result a rather entertaining slow motion mashup of Kessler’s abuse.
Check out the full rundown of the operation over at Philip Bloom’s site.
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.
