For film-makers who want affordable quality in super-slow motion captureVision Research Phantom v640 camera with CineMag attached
Renowned for their high-end, ultra-slow-motion products, Vision Research's latest release caters to the budget-conscious Film and TV maker by offering a choice of two attractively-priced high-speed models.

Both the VEO 640S and the VEO 340S include features for Film / TV including on-camera controls, timecode in/out, 3G HD-SDI and HDMI monitor outputs and other additional programmable I/O signal availability, ruggedized connectors and compatibility with removable CFast 2.0 storage media. Additionally, the cameras' small 5" form factor, together with the Abel Cine Essentials kit, enable a number of different rigging options for portability and flexibility.

Available with a choice of three levels of on-board memory (18, 36 or 72 GB) and the C-Fast card, these two VEO models offer a a convenient and efficient workflow for high pressure production film sets or mobile shots. Cines are recorded to the camera's on-board RAM, trimmed and then saved to CFast media which can be swapped out when full. This workflow eliminates downtime by keeping the camera online, ready for the next capture. Multiple takes are possible with the ability to segment RAM memory into up to 63 segments. This allows fast and uninterrupted capture of multiple events without the need to transfer video. The desired workflow will dictate which of the two choices are viable.

With up to 72 GB RAM, both Phantom VEOs can capture more frames than most comparable cameras in today's market. Depending on the type of shot, the frame rate and resolution can be adjusted. For the VEO 640S, shoot 1400 fps at 2560 x 1600 or reduce the resolution to 1920 x 1080 for 2500 fps. The VEO 340S can provide 800 fps at full resolution and 1100 fps at the reduced resolution of 1920 x 1080. Many other variations to resolution and frame rate are also available. Recording time at full resolution and maximum speed for the VEO 640S is 8.5 seconds. For the VEO 340S, maximum recording time is 15 seconds.

Lens mounts available include Nikon F/G, C-mount, PL-mount and Canon EF (with electronic access to aperture and focus). Exposure Index range: Mono 6400–32,000 D; Color 1250–6400 D. Built tough and rated to withstand up to 100G shock.
The VEO is offered at a lower price point than Vision Research's other high-performance cameras

About CFast
The CFast workflow is similar to the CineFlash module of the Phantom Miro. Cine files are recorded first to RAM and then tarnsferred to the card at a speed of 90MB/second. As with the Miro Cineflash the VEO CFast card does not support Run/Stop mode or playback over video and must be formatted NTFS. Because of this format, no special drivers are required for downloading the cine files via Windows or Mac.
