New Media 1: The Phantom Flex
We visited Rule: Boston Camera, which sells and rents camera and film equipment. At this studio/facility, they have the latest technology, and the most expensive. Rule's newest product for film was the Phantom Flex, which was a high-speed camera, which took 2,500 frames per second. This camera went for about 135,000 dollars and was capable of great film development. The films are slow motion clips of mostly filler scenes are interesting to all audiences because it did not have a specific interest except for cool and interesting clips. This camera shows what technology has in store for the future, and it gives us assurance that technology is improving and will develop to meet our needs to the fullest. Technology moves fast, and we are just experiencing everything the new technologies give us. Watch an example here.
