I was born and raised in Los Angeles and graduated from the Academy of Photographic Arts in North Hollywood, specializing in commercial still photography and portraiture. After developing an interest in film and motion picture work, I attended UCLA’s film school to study cinematography. I currently shoot projects ranging from feature films, TV movies & TV series, to 70mm IMAX films, commercials, and have experience with a wide variety of film production formats to the latest full frame digital formats.

Love High Speed and Mr Moco Bolt – Behind The Scenes
High-Speed Camera Can Film 11,750fps in Full HD
The Phantom v2640 has a 4MP CMOS image sensor, which might not sound like a lot. However, it’s capable of capturing at the full resolution of that sensor at the aforementioned 6,600fps. That’s a resolution of 2048 x 1952. If you turn it down to full HD (1080p), the Phantom v2640 is capable of 11,750fps. At standard definition (480p), you can record at 28,760 frames per second.
The internal storage is configurable at the time of purchase with 72GB, 144GB, and 288GB options. Even the maximum storage option won’t hold a ton of video when you’re recording at thousands of frames per second. So, the camera also supports Vision Research’s CineMag IV swappable high-speed storage disks for an additional 1-2TB of space.
