Charles Berquist & Olympus iSpeed 3
If you wonder how this was shot, search no more. The camera is an OLYMPUS iSpeed 3 that can shoot up to 2000 frames per second at 1280×1024 resolution. A relatively cheaper alternative to the PHANTOM camera.
While many critics find that this camera is more of a experimental toy more that anything else, I believe that this brings a fresh zest of creativity. A few very talented videographers such as Charles Berquist has already put it to the test as you can see in the video above.
The idea of high speed video shooting is not something new, but the fact that these great cameras are becoming more and more accessible to everyone it pushes me to believe that we will see a burst of videos such as this one in the near future. Really looking forward to see how people will make a use of it. Personally, I’ve always wanted something like this and definitely will try to get my hands on one.
Recently while watching Melancholia, I’ve noticed that even big house production movies started using this cameras. Definitely something to look forward to.
