Vision Research Phantom VEO4K

Phantom VEO4K® high-speed cameras are compact, rugged and packed full of features. The VEO4K-PL has been customized for media applications with a black housing and features required for cinematography such as an optical low pass filter and PL mount. It can be thought of as Phantom Flex4K-GS image performance in the convenient form factor of a Phantom VEO. VEO cameras are known for being built tough enough to perform in difficult environments, and are rated to withstand up to 30G as configured or up to 100G without the internal mechanical shutter option (which is standard on all models). The internal components are completely isolated which protects the electronics for long-term reliability.

We require $500 deposit upon booking. The deposit is non-refundable 48-hours before prep/pick-up date. 

We will provide an operator for the Phantom Veo4K. The technician's rate is $500/10hrs and follows CPAT guidelines for overtime rates.
