Posted on Apr 16, 2010 by Definition Magazine

Broadcast equipment manufacturer FOR-A, not known for making cameras, showed the VFC-7000 HD Variable Frame Rate (Super Slow Motion) Camera at the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas. It offers high-speed play out and recording in full frame HD (1280×720) at up to 700 fps, and allows for the recording speed to be varied from 125 fps to 700 fps.

blankIt comes complete with camera head, main body, an F lens mount, and recording component in one integrated package. With its high-sensitivity CMOS colour sensor, it features an electronic high-speed shutter that can operate as fast as 1/200,000 second for filming fast moving events and subjects without blur.

The unit also includes internal storage memory for 2.3 seconds of HD recording (full frame), which is expandable to about nine seconds with optional maximum memory installed. The Ethernet interface offers high-speed transfer of footage to an external storage or production system. The VFC-7000 is equipped with two channels of HD-SDI output, which also allows the user of the camera to provide a live video output while at the same time outputting recorded video stored in the camera in parallel.

The VFC-7000 will be available in August 2010.
