Tips for lens selection:
High Speed filming requires a lot of light, it’s worth considering the lenses characteristics and performance wide open.
The Phantom Miro has a 19.2mm x 12.0mm sensor giving a crop factor similar to Super-16 format. With 9 stops of dynamic range and quite harsh highlight roll off a more cinematic lens helps to get the best from this camera.
The Phantom Flex4K has a 27.6mm x 15.5mm sensor giving a Super-35 crop factor at 4K and cropping down further to Super-16 for 2K if required. 13 stops, log profile and nice highlight roll off most glass with look great. Zeiss CP’s – Master Primes will give you pin sharp images. For a more cinematic look the Celere, Leica’s or Cooke are a good option.
