FOR-A Corporation of America plans to showcase its FT-ONE full 4K super slow motion camera at Cine Gear Expo, May 31 – June 1 at The Studios at Paramount in Hollywood. FOR-A will also display the FT-1READ – a RAW data to DPX converter available with the FT-ONE camera.
“The FT-ONE has received many accolades for its innovative technology since the camera’s introduction,” said Hiro Tanoue, president for FOR-A Corporation of America. “Cine Gear Expo continually attracts many major players in high-end entertainment production, and FOR-A is looking forward to showcasing the camera and its stunning 4K capabilities again at this year’s show.”
First introduced at last year’s Cine Gear Expo, the FT-ONE is ideal for digital cinematography applications. The camera is able to compete with the 4K workflow by introducing the ability to simultaneously record and play back super slow motion images at full 4K resolution. The FT-ONE’s high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor, FT1-CMOS, enables high-speed recording at up to 900 frames per second (fps). The camera 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.
FOR-A will also be showing the FT-1READ, an option available with the FT-ONE for easy file conversion. The FT-1READ takes the RAW data from the SSD drives, imports all recorded info, and converts it to a DPX file.
The FT-ONE camera uses a PL mount lens and a global shutter system, which allows the camera to capture fast-moving subjects in crisp detail at 4K resolution. The FT-ONE is designed as a self-contained unit that is dependable and easy to use.
