High Speed digital camera rental options

Recommended Posts



Look for a Sony FS700 with the raw recorder on the back. I suspect there are some available for rental, though I know of at least one place that was selling them off because they were considered yesterday's news. They will do 240fps very nicely. You may consider the 480 usable. It's a very cheap option compared to any of Vision Research's cameras, which tend to turn up on a longboat surrounded by garlands of flowers and a group of highly-paid attendants fanning the thing with palm leaves and chanting mysterious incantations.

Hahaha. yeah, you know what I'm trying to avoid.


Yeah, I landed on the FS700 while researching options but I have a Red Epic, so looking for something that might surpass what I can do with that.


I did also just find a few very good looking rental options on eBay.

What about the Chronos? http://www.krontech.ca/chronos-14-demos.html


Not phantom quality - but able to do 1000fps at 1280 by 1024 - which is slower then sony and red and maybe doable resolutionwise.


More affordable too.


Or if you can shoot at around 200-250fps - time remapping tools like twixtor start to work quite well and with a 2x slow mo could probably simulate 500fps quite well.
