Optitrack Flex13 - 720p 120fps with GLOBAL shutter for 999/-

I just bought one for testing. Meant for motion capture.
However, this would make an EXCELLENT 3D camera rig, as well as a camera for slo mo effects.


In Depth

120 FPS marker tracking, expansive 56° FOV, and on-camera processing for $999—turn-key motion capture at accessible pricing.

Now, when we can fit 3 sensors of 1920x1080 at 60p into something with decent noise and dynamic range, that's when most of the anti-rolling shutter people start to pay with their wallets.

Any production that uses this for motion tracking/capture would be relieved to not have to compensate for the rolling shutter.

Obviously, this is optimized for motion capture, so it's dynamic range and noise might be something it would lack in some areas. (also, no bayer filter so it's B&W)
I wait for the day cost-efficient global shutter 60fps capable CMOS sensors emerge for use on major manufacturers' cameras. (Sony, Canon, etc.) Rolling Shutters are a plague.
