Speaking of 4K and the FOR-A FT-ONE camera, they are being used right now in sports broadcast situations for very specific applications: slow-motion and close-up replays. Sporting events can be decided by inches, or at times even millimeters, and giving the officials of the game the best views possible is difficult when a blown-up 1080p image just doesn’t quite cut it. That’s why those who broadcast NFL games have been experimenting with using 4K cameras to do a super-zoom into the action, and they will be in use for this year’s Baltimore Ravens/San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl.

The FOR-A 4K high-speed camera from FT-ONE didn’t get all that much attention when it was first announced, due in part to the fact that it’s probably going to be a rental only, but also because the name of both the company and the camera are easily confused and/or forgettable. No worries though, the camera does exist, and it’s capable of some pretty astounding frame rates at extremely high-resolution. It’s a specialty device for sure, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fantasize about using one, right? A Swiss company, Kamerawerk GmbH, put one to use in their recent No Sleep 4K music video (which they will be releasing as a 4K download), and they’ve posted a behind-the-scenes video showing the camera recording 4K at an astounding 860 frames per second, as well as another video showing off the rest of the production which is utilizing the Sony F65 as well.

You thought your uncompressed HD or 2.5K was taking up a lot of space? That doesn’t hold a candle to the kinds of data rates being produced by the new expertly named FOR-A FT-ONE. If you thought RED EPIC’s 4K at 150fps or the Phantom 65 4K model at 144 fps, they are both way behind this behemoth. At 900fps, this is one ridiculously fast camera, and at that speed and resolution, the price tag is steep. Check out the videos below for more info. More »
