Edgertronic: a Cheaper High-Speed Camera


Sat, Oct 5th, 2013 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

Currently seeking your financial support on Kickstarter, the Edgertronic wants to be a low-cost alternative to creating high-speed video. At a cost of $5,000, it's not exactly cheap, but when you compare it to the $50,000 of a low-end Phantom, everything starts to make sense.

Are you frustrated that access to professional grade, high-speed video cameras is limited to big budget shows on the Discovery Channel? Do you dream of having the frame rate and resolution of a truly professional camera sitting on your tripod? We’ve created an easy-to-use system that rivals the quality of high-priced cameras at a fraction of the cost.

edgertronic is disrupting the high-speed video camera market.

We started this project for one simple reason: There are no low-cost high-speed video cameras that offer the video quality that professional photographers demand. Since Mike first modified a low-cost strobe flash in 1975, he's been pursuing his passion for low-cost, high-speed photography. He's been frustrated by ridiculously expensive rentals (thousands of dollars per day) of medium quality, high-speed cameras that are bulky and complex to use. In 2011, we set out to solve these problems, and now we're ready to show it to the world.
