DETAILS

The Freefly Wave Camera is an ultra-high-speed capturing system with a passive E mount and internal SSD storage. Special note about the mount: you must use manual focus lenses with this camera or have your lens completely in manual focusing mode. Do not use with AF/M – manual override will not operate correctly. Here are the highlights of this unique Super 35mm camera:

  • • Astounding 9259 FPS at 2048 x 128, 1461 FPS in 2K, and 422 FPS in 4K.
  • • Uses a lightweight 5:1 proprietary 10-Bit compressed raw (must use a Windows system and Wave Player to export in MOV or MP4).
  • • Continuous capture time limited only by the internal storage (2TB).
  • • 6-pin GPIO connector for stop/stop/sync and UART API.
  • • Fast file transfer over USB-C SuperSpeed.
  • • Global electronic shutter to eliminate digital artifacts, rolling shutter effects, and improve post-production stabilization.
  • • 60 minute internal battery with DC input for optional V-mount batteries.

    The Freefly Wave Camera is a specialty camera designed entirely for slow motion footage. It is the ideal choice for scientific applications, fine art, and unique b-roll footage. Its small size and light weight makes it suitable for drone use as well.

  • NOTES

  • • The footage from this camera is recorded in a compressed 10-bit RGB raw format that can't be currently opened with anything other than Wave Player on a Windows operating system. From there, you can export in MOV, H.264, and in PNG/JPEG sequence formats.
  • • There is no LCD/monitor on this camera. To preview footage or interact with camera menus, you must use an external monitor. Freefly recommends the Atomos Shinobi and the SmallHD Focus 5. Most monitors that can receive 1080p30 over HDMI should work.
  • • External recording is limited to 1080p30.
  • • This camera uses a passive, locking E mount. There are no electrical connections to the lens and electronic focus and iris control are not supported.
  • • This camera will mount as an external drive when connected to a computer but for the most reliable performance, the USB cable and USB port used need to be USB-C SuperSpeed (5Gbps).
  • • HDMI preview image quality will be closer to 1080p when recording in 4K (and 480p when recording in 2K).
  • • This camera is not a good choice for use in low light.
  • • There is no audio capture with this camera.
  • • External SSDs cannot be used at this time.
  • • This camera is compatible with external 12-26V V-mount batteries (not included). It comes with an AC power adapter/charger, where the 2200mAh internal battery will last 1 hour. Charge time is approximately 90 minutes.
  • • Shim lens adapters are included and the most common one – the 1.0 – is pre-installed on the camera.
