‘Hurt Locker’ Slomo Guys Show New ‘Diablo’ Camera

Posted on Apr 16, 2010 by Definition Magazine

IDT’s new Diablo High Speed camera Pic © Inspirational StudiosWe missed this camera and thank Inspiration Studios for blogging about it. The HDiablo was apparently near the Vision Research booth at the NAB 2010 show – smart move. Inspirational Studios blogged this about it: “This is a PL mount, 20mm diagonal 2K sensor capable of 750fps at full frame and 1000fps at 1920×1080. Sensitivity is claimed as ASA 800. The camera has 16GB internal storage, which equates to eight seconds real time at 1000fps. Full PC app controls the camera via Ethernet; can spit out image sequences or AVI files. There’s also limited iPhone control available as an option (there’s a bolt-on WiFi module). Lens mounts available: C/EF/F/PL. Price: US$60k – a bargain for this kind of camera.”

The HDMI output is live and they’re claiming a 30-bit colour performance. Oh and these were the guys who produced the camera that provided those great slomo shots from The Hurt Locker – best bits of the movie!
