Digital Artist Benjamin Von Wong Gets Creative with FOR-A’s VFC-7000 Variable Frame Rate Camera

Toronto, Canada – FOR-A Corporation of America, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, announces that Montreal-based photographer and visual engineer Benjamin Von Wong recently used its VFC-7000 HD Variable Frame Rate Camera for two artistic video projects.

When he first laid eyes on the lightweight, compact VFC-7000 camera at a Toronto tradeshow last summer, Von Wong was impressed with the camera’s slow motion capabilities. He capitalized on the camera’s ability to capture high-speed HD recordings when he later used it to shoot a creative video that focused on his long hair. Von Wong subjected himself to water, eggs, and flour being thrown at his head during a cold night, along with some fire thrown into the mix – all in the name of exciting slow motion footage. He paired FOR-A’s VFC-7000 with a LensBaby Composer lens for the video shoot.

“The VFC-7000’s functionality was fantastic,” said Benjamin. “Other than the FOR-A solution, we didn’t use any other extremely high-end equipment for the shoot. We also were dealing with a low-light situation. My team and I even used car lights for lighting part of the video. Even with these challenging circumstances, the camera performed well and exhibited a great deal of sensitivity.”

The award-winning VFC-7000 is an all-in-one self-contained camera that offers high-speed play out and recording in full frame HD at up to 700 frames per second. The unit comes complete with a camera head, main body, an F lens mount and recording component. With its high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor, the VFC-7000 features an electronic high-speed shutter that can operate as fast as 1/200,000 second for filming fast moving events and subjects without blur.

In addition to shooting The secret behind Von Wong’s epic hair, Benjamin also used the VFC-7000 to shoot a medieval pumpkin destruction video, which he entered into a Halloween filmmaking competition.

Benjamin explains, “This was my first time using a camera system with such high-speed capabilities, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the VFC-7000. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to operate the camera, which allowed me more time to focus on other elements of the project. I came away from these video projects confident that FOR-A’s VFC-7000 is a high-quality camera that offers anyone the chance to shoot rich action video in uncompressed HD.”
