Phantom v1610 High-Speed Camera
Vision Research unveils two additions to the company’s Phantom® v-Series line of digital high-speed cameras with the introduction of the Phantom v1210 and v1610. These top-of-their-class cameras are the world’s fastest 1 megapixel digital high-speed cameras. They feature high definition and widescreen 1280 x 800 CMOS sensors. The Phantom v1610 is 60 percent faster than any other camera on the market, with the ability to acquire more than 16,000 frames-per-second (fps) at full resolution and up to 1,000,000 fps at reduced resolution.
In this post I wanted to present a selection of short films produced by Mexican production company The Mates for the project “Stars of the Bicentennial” to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Mexico as a Country.
Cameraman and Cinematographer David Torres did an amazing job using the Phantom and Red One Camera with lenses Red Pro Primes.
The dream and the challenge is to transmit through images that can be perceived not only natural beauty and biodiversity, but the soul, spirit, feelings and pride of Mexico.
If you like horses watch the first video: The images are just spectacular!
Director of Photography Michael Sutton shot these amazing images with a Phantom Flex camera. He shot between 1200fps and 2500fps.

I was working a gig in Vegas with a brand new Phantom Flex high speed digital cinema camera. I had to try it out. In fact, I never did go to bed that night. I opened up a wormhole shooting at 2,564 frames per second.
