Phantom Flex: Captures Life Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

At OSM we try to inform you of as many different cameras and DSLRs that we possibly can, some of the most recent ones were from CES 2011 where we were taking a look back at them. Some of them included the JVC GC-PX1 that cannot decide if it’s a camera or a camcorder, the Casio Exilum EX-ZR100 and of course the Sony Handycam HDR-TD10, which can record in full 3D.

We have also reported on a few new cameras such as the Ricoh CX5 and also Canon’s T3/T3i DSLRs but now we have read a report of another camera and this looks like the most amazing thing that I have personally ever witnessed. The Phantom Flex captures life like you’ve never seen before.

Engadget’s Vlad Savov describes it in his article that it dropped jaws with its incredible slow motion footage. In the video we can see water running out of a tap, water falling onto a surface and then dispersing into a million tiny droplets, a glass of water being dropped a light bulb smashing and a BlackBerry being dropped that shows you the vibration travelling up its body with the impact.

The guy that made the video, Tom Guilmette has also done a write up on his website where he tells us more about the device and its crazy frame rate, 2,564 at 1080p. It’s a really interesting article for people that aren’t camera lover, he has simply managed to take a subject that some perceive as boring and turned into something amazing.

What do you think of the video? Which was your favorite part? Let us know in the comments section below.
