'Hurt Locker' Slomo Guys Show New 'Diablo' Camera

IDT's new Diablo High Speed camera Pic © Inspirational StudiosWe missed this camera and thank Inspiration Studios for blogging about it. The HDiablo was apparently near the Vision Research booth at the NAB 2010 show - smart move. Inspirational Studios blogged this about it: "This is a PL mount, 20mm diagonal 2K sensor capable of 750fps at full frame and 1000fps at 1920x1080. Sensitivity is claimed as ASA 800. The camera has 16GB internal storage, which equates to eight seconds real time at 1000fps. Full PC app controls the camera via Ethernet; can spit out image sequences or AVI files. There's also limited iPhone control available as an option (there's a bolt-on WiFi module). Lens mounts available: C/EF/F/PL. Price: US$60k - a bargain for this kind of camera."

The HDMI output is live and they're claiming a 30-bit colour performance. Oh and these were the guys who produced the camera that provided those great slomo shots from The Hurt Locker - best bits of the movie!
