Olympus high speed night

Recently we had a demo of the Olympus high speed cameras at ProAv Solutions.

About 25 members attended to see these quite impressive (and simple to operate) high speed cameras in action.

Although not full HD the pictures were quite good especially considering the price point. Certainly a much cheaper alternative to the Phantom, etc.

The picture of the camera above has a witness camera trained onto the operating screen so we could all see how easy it was to program.

Thanks to Brenton form Olympus for answering all of our questions and ProAv Solutions for the venue, pizza & beer.

As always, if you have any suggestions for trade nights, you have a new piece of gear you'd like to show our members or you have an idea for a screening and Q&A please let a committee member know.
