Video: New high-tech camera captures incredible fireground footage

The camera records video at speeds of up to 1000 fps in uncompressed 4K RAW video in five second bursts


HEBRON, Conn. — Believe it or not, this isn't a trailer for a Hollywood movie — it's real life fireground footage.

To test their new high speed camera, Vision Research asked Director Brendan Bellomo and cinematographer Greg Wilson to put the Phantom Flex4K through its paces by filming the Hebron Fire Dept. and the Glastonbury Fire Dept. in Connecticut.

The camera — which will retail from  $109,000 to $164,000 — records video at speeds of up to 1000 fps in uncompressed 4K RAW video in five second bursts.
