For-A introduces super slow-motion 4K camera

CYPRESS, CA — For-A Company Limited ( recently introduced the FT-One 4K variable frame rate camera, one of the first full 4K, super slow motion cameras. The FT-One uses the company’s high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor and can record and play back full 4K (4096x2160) imagery. To achieve its full 4K super slow motion capabilities, the FT-One can record up to 1,000 frames per second.

Images are captured as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal (RAM) memory, which has a recording capacity of 8.5 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges. Each cartridge is capable of storing 75 seconds of full 4K resolution images, enabling up to 150 seconds with a maximum of two SSD cartridges.

The FT-One is capable of simultaneously recording and playing back in full 4K resolution. At the user’s preference, one output channel can provide either full 4K output, or four 1080p HD-SDI outputs; while the other output channel provides down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and the control menu.

The FT-One uses a PL mount lens and the global shutter system makes it free from the picture distortion caused by a rolling shutter system.
