The Freefly Wave is an ultra-high-speed camera system with a passive E mount and internal SSD storage. Here are the highlights of this unique Super 35mm camera:
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.
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 – it will not operate correctly. Please do not remove the pre-installed shim, as it is essential for finding accurate focus marks on most lenses.

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. From there, you can export in MOV, H.264, and in PNG/JPEG sequence formats. 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). There is no audio capture with this camera. External SSDs cannot be used at this time. A 1.0 shim is pre-installed on the camera. Please do not remove the shim, as it is essential for finding accurate focus marks on most lenses.
