A 4K high speed camera, but what else? Image quality is the priority with a high speed camera for generating footage for TV or the film industry. We have both HD and 4K (UHD) cameras, but what other factors should a high speed camera for TV ultra slomo include?


All IDT cameras are very compact, making them suited to being mounted in locations where other cameras cannot.


Most of our cameras now have a 12-bit depth, and with the extremely clean image, a dynamic range of 11 or 12 f-stops is easily achieved


For fast moving subjects, a global shutter is very important. A rolling shutter can produce some very off-putting distortions, particularly when the subject is fast moving. All IDT cameras have a global shutter. Normally, a rolling shutter would be used to obtain higher quality images, but IDT’s proprietary technology ensures exceptional quality from a global shutter camera.


As we tend to use small sensors, often a C-Mount lens can be used, but we cater for F-, PL-, Micro 4/3″ and Canon EOS lenses too. The O-10 4K high speed camera includes the ability to control Canon lens settings from the control software.

4K high speed cameraWORKFLOW

There are various automation features that can be utilised. The O-10 4K high speed camera includes a removable SSD drive. This allows a very fast backup to be made after recording a high speed sequence, minimising the down time before the the camera is ready for the next recording. The drive can be removed and taken away, allowing editing to be carried out whilst filming carries on (a second SSD drive would be required for optimised workflow)


The O-10 4K high speed camera includes a battery, which will allow use for up to about 30 minutes. For longer use, other battery options are available, as well as powering from mains adapter.

Recommended camera for TV/ Media use: – The O-10; UHD at 1100fps. Demonstration camera available
