(image credit: FASTEC) FASTEC TS3Cine | from US$29,900.00 | ts3cine.com
if are an aspiring videographer, you are probably going to dig this. the FASTEC TS3Cine is a high speed video camera in a compact form factor. even in its compact form, it still sports a generous 7-inch LCD display, negating the need to hook up external monitor for shot framing. at its maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024, the TS3Cine can capture videos at up to 500 frames per second (fps). however, it can record at 720 frames per second (fps) if recording at 720p resolution and as high as 20,000 frames per second (fps) when recording at its lowest resolution. though, no mention of what is the lowest resolution.
the removable rechargeable battery is good for three hours of usage and captured footages are stored in the built in 128 GB Solid State Drive (SSD), while 256 GB SSD is available as an option. a SD card slot provide additional storage using SD card. connectivity includes Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 2.0, HDMI out. it is even compatible with WIFI dongle if you prefer to go wireless. so the price for such a fast, compact camera? a whopping $29,900 for the based model with 128 GB SSD. want the 256 GB SSD? add another $2,000. pricey huh? then again, i assume that you probably would be at least a semi-pro videographer to be looking at such an equipment.
well, at least that’s half the price of the professional-grade video rig like the RED EPIC-M. since you probably won’t be shooting The Hobbit, i guess the TS3Cine is an ideal go-between. it probably sits between an high-end DSLR and a pro-rig like the RED EPIC-M. its compact form factor also means it would be ideal camera action-adventure shooting and areas with space constraints.
