Tech Expo @ Rule: Phantom HD Gold camera

The Phantom HD Gold is a super-high speed camera capable of recording up to 1000 frames-per-second at 1080p. It's ca operate with shutter speeds as high as 1/500,000 second capturing at 42-bit color.

Rule has one available for rent (@ $2,500 per day) and it produces amazing results, though I hear it needs a fair bit of light when shooting.

They had the unit out on display, and though they weren't running it, they did play back some clips taken with the camera. The body itself isn't that impressive - it sort of looks like it came off a 50's sci-fi movie - but I guess the important thing is the results!

[UPDATE: You can see an example of footage shot with the Phantom HD Gold at The Huber Experiments Vol. 1
