When your slow-motion needs to be slower than slow, the Phantom TMX 5010 should be your port of call. Just announced, this specialist slow-mo camera can capture video at an impressive 1.16 million frames per second. 

It’s the latest entry in a series that also includes the TMX 6410 and the TMX 7510, both of which can shoot at even faster frame rates. The TMX 5010 differs, however, in that Vision Research is billing it as “entry-level”. This means a comparatively lower price tag than the other Phantom models – though, as we’ll see, this is something of a relative term.
