Fun Times With Phantom Flex

Life could be far more interesting if it had a slow motion button, don’t you think? After being entertained by ashomsky’s compilation of skateboarding bails and fails shot at 1,000 frames per second, I wanted to see more.

The Phantom Flex is a high-speed camcorder that is able to shoot at 1080p videos at a whopping 2,570 frames per second. Some months back, cinematographer Tom Guilmette happened to find himself in possession of a Phantom Flex, and decided to experiment with it. From the comfort of his hotel room, Guilmette used the camera to film ordinary things such as jumping on a bed, opening and closing a tap, and smashing a light bulb. These may seem like banal tasks but are taken to a whole new level at 2,564 frames per second. Have a look at his slow-motion footage below.
