The camera lets you customize the workflow that makes sense for your production. The Cine raw format ensures the fastest high-speed capture on set and maximum quality and versatility for post-production. Files are saved to the hot-swappable Phantom CineMag® IV (up to 2TB). The three main 3G HD-SDI video outputs support dual-link 4K video and advanced scaling when set to 1080p. Vision Research also has announced plans to introduce in-camera compression via a firmware update in early 2014.
The full-featured on-camera control interface eliminates the need to connect to a computer on set. All camera parameters can be set from the built in menu on the right side of the camera body, and controls for capture, playback, saving and monitoring can be found on both sides. Shortcuts are available for popular functions and multiple user presets exist to allow for a quick setup.
