The Freefly Wave camera could become a very special bang for slow-motion applications. Anyway, the technical data reads very interesting:
Behind a passive e-mount there is a 4K-Global Shutter Sensor (22.53mm x 16.90mm, 4096 x 3072, 5.5μm Pixel Pitch, Native ISO 250) This sensor should be able to record 422 frames per second (frames per second/fps) at 4K resolution (with 4096 x 2176 pixels). In a 2K window even 1440 fps are possible, which can be further reduced vertically in extreme 2048x128 pixels up to 9259 fps.
Recording is done on an internal NVMe-SSD, which can currently hold 1 or 2TB. It is not simply changeable but the camera is delivered with this memory "fixed". The data is read out via a USB 3.2 Gen1x1 Type C connection with 5Gb/s. By a rough estimate it should be possible to transfer 1TB to a laptop in about 3 minutes.
As file format the manufacturer specifies Compressed Bayer RAW with 10 Bit, which is compressed between 5:1 and 6:1.
With 2 TB of memory, the camera can record a maximum of 35 minutes without interruption, and the integrated battery can even last for about one hour according to the data sheet.
The very light and compact Freefly Wave (150mm x 97mm x 47mm, 716g) does not have its own display, but a preview monitor can be docked via HDMI (1080p30).
Freefly itself builds and sells the camera in batches. The first batch of 20 units is already sold out and is scheduled for delivery from 18.11.2020. The second batch of 30 pieces should be available from 1.12.2020. With 1TB the Freefly Wave camera costs 9,995.00 US-Dollar. The second TB costs 1,000 Euro extra. Considering the fact that 1 TB can be backed up in 3 minutes, the surcharge seems a bit steep...
