  • The Phantom Flex 2.5K rental - hire camera is one of Vision Research ultra-high-speed cameras and the Phantom Flex 4k's predecessor, the latest trend in slow motion today. This Phantom Flex camera is capable of capturing up to 2570 fps in 1920 x 1080 and 1455 fps in 2560 x 1600 (2.5K). The sensor of the Phantom Flex 2.5K is a 4 megapixel CMOS Super-35mm. The area of ​​this sensor is modified in terms of size depending on the resolution used.

  • Therefore, the sensor will cover 25.5mm x 16mm at 2.5K (2560 x 1600), 25.6mm x 14.4mm at 2.5K 16: 9 (2560 x 1440), etc... This camera can carry from Super-35mm lenses (using the entire sensor area), to Super-16mm lenses providing 720p files. The Phantom Flex 2.5 camera has two types of shutter: "Global Shutter" and "Caping Shutter". The second one is a mechanical feature that completely covers the sensor to achieve 100% darkness. It is only used to perform black balance.
  • The Phantom Flex 2.5K provides 12-Bit RAW Cinema files, a dynamic range of 11 Stops, and low noise images. These files are stored in CineMag II memory devices. These are non-volatile discs whose capacity ranges from 128 to 512 GB, reaching a transmission speed of up to 800 megapixels per second. To download RAW files, you can use an ETHERNET cable to connect the camera to a computer; another way to do it is through a Phantom CineStation, which is a specific reader for these discs. To download and transcode, it is also necessary to use a computer program called PCC (Phantom Camera Controller).
  • The Flex 2.5K rental - hire camera has two recording styles: HQ and SQ. These functions differ in the way of processing information. This way, the High Quality (HQ) style provides a frame-by-frame image analysis to minimize noise and prevent possible artifacts in the recorded image. To make such an image improvement, the processor needs more processing time; because of this, this style has a lower frame rate (approximately half) than the Standard Quality mode. To record in SQ style, it is necessary to perform black balance when making configuration changes. This prevents possible noise or artifacts in the final image.
  • The rental - hire camera has two recording modes: Loop and Rec / Stop. Like its big sister (the Phantom Flex 4K), this Flex camera can record in Loops. This means that when the camera is activated, it starts recording images in its internal storage (buffer). The stored video is cyclic: the information is constantly rewritten in a cycle that lasts a few seconds. Pressing Trigger (REC button), the loop stops and gets stored in the Phantom CineMagII memory. The duration of the loop is determined by the camera's RAM capacity, resolution, and frames per second. The more RAM memory, the more available loop seconds.
  • On the other hand, we have the Flex 2.5K REC / STOP recording mode. This is the usual way of recording in any kind of camera: the Trigger (REC) button is pressed to start the capture and pressed again to finish the recording. In this mode, the information is directly saved in the CineMagII memory. When using the REC / STOP mode, a greater amount of recording time is available, but at fewer frames per second. The video can reach up to 222 fps at 2560 x 1440 (2.5K).
