FOR-A plans to showcase the newest version of its FT-ONE 4K super slow motion camera at the upcoming Cine Gear Expo, taking place June 5-8 at The Studios at Paramount in Hollywood.
The company will also display the FT-1READ — a RAW data to DPX converter available with the FT-ONE camera. The new version of the FT-ONE offers fiber I/O connections built directly into the unit for ease of use when shooting from the field.
The FT-1READ is an option available with the FT-ONE for file conversion. The device takes the RAW data from the SSD drives, imports all recorded info and converts it to a DPX file, which is a common file format for editing and color grading.
The FT-ONE has been used in a variety of sports broadcast and digital cinematography applications, including professional football, boxing, automobile racing, ice cross downhill and wakeboarding events, as well as a NASA rocket launch.
The camera employs FOR-A’s high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor —the FT1-CMOS —and plays back full 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels). One output channel can provide QFHD (four 1080p 3G-SDI) outputs, while the other output channel provides down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and play back.
The FT-ONE captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images at 900 fps.
