Phantom Flex 4K Director – Paul Lilley

The Phantom Flex4K is a full-featured digital cinema camera, capable of speeds that range from standard frame rates to over 1,000 frames-per-second (fps) at 4K and up to 2,000 fps at 2K pixel resolution. Building upon the award winning technology of Phantom digital cinema products, the Flex4K combines features found in the latest cinema cameras with those found only in specialty cameras.

With the planned option to record either uncompressed raw or with industry- standard compression, the workflow will be just as flexible as the camera’s frame rate. The latest in non-volatile storage technology is used to move data quickly, while a complete on-camera control menu eliminates the need for a computer on set.

Designed for the cinematographer, the phantom Flex 4k is a high-speed camera providing exceptional flexibility with its frame-rate capabilities and by adapting to different shooting styles. The super-35mm 4k sensor provides sharp, detailed images with extremely low noise and high dynamic range. The Flex4k is capable of shooting from 15 frames-per-second (fps) up to 1,000 fps at 4k, and almost 2,000 fps at 2k/1080p.

The camera lets you customize the workflow that makes sense for your production. the cine raw format ensures the fastest high-speed capture on set and maximum quality and versatility for post-production. Alternatively, choose Apple Prores 422 HQ to improve download time, hard drive space and simplify the workflow, while maintaining excellent image quality.

The full-featured on-camera control interface eliminates the need to connect to a computer on set. All camera parameters can be set from the built in menu on the right side of the camera body, and basic controls can be found on both sides.
