Camera sensor technology advances rapidly and shooting videos in high speed has become a common feature on both consumer cameras and smartphones. There are many options for shooting around 200-300fps in HD (1080P) resolution (Sony, Black Magic, GoPro, iPhone) however frame rates of 500fps and more still require specialist high speed cameras.
To this end, the Photron BC2 HD is a superb and cost effective option for HD high speed shoots. Whether you are filming TV programmes, sports, animals, special effects, dancers, musicians, promotional videos, the Photron BC2 can produce the high resolution images you require. Used in conjunction with an Atomos Samurai HD-SDI recorder (Apple Pro Res HQ movies), it becomes a computer-less, easy to use, dry hire system. We have an experienced high speed cameraman in Ed Edwards should you need a competent operator.
A stock footage service is available. Slowmo can film in full HD, up to 2000fps, small set-ups involving liquids, inanimate/natural objects, etc, with full input from yourselves. Previous examples have involved dripping blood onto earth, silks in the wind, sugar granules falling onto to shiny surface.
