The Phantom Flex 2K, offering the greatest feature flexibility of any digital high-speed camera on the market. It is capable of recording 2,570 fps at 1920x1080. An innovative HQ Mode offers ultimate image quality,Depending on the shooting mode and resolution, the Flex is capable of shooting from 5 fps to over 10,750 fps.


The Phantom Flex offers two user-selectable shooting modes, each adapted to a particular shooting environment. In Standard Mode, the Phantom Flex is just like any other Phantom digital high-speed camera. Shoot at resolutions up to 2560x1600 pixels at anywhere from 10 frames-per-second up to 1,455 frames-per-second (fps).


In Phantom HQ Mode, Vision Research's proprietary image enhancement technology results in electronic image stability unprecedented in digital high-speed cameras: stable blacks, low noise, higher dynamic range, and repeatable shots over the full range of supported resolutions, frame rates and temperatures without the need for pre-shot black references. Maximum frame rates in HQ mode are about half those in Standard mode, which means that in HQ Mode Flex captures images at speeds up to 1,275 fps at 1920x1080.
