Storm Chaser Uses 4K Phantom to Capture Lightning Like You’ve Never Seen

Transient 2 is the latest storm chasing time-lapse from Dustin Farrell, an incredible compilation of his last two years of storm chasing captured with a Phantom Flex 4K. What stood out to me was the incredible captures of lightning Farrell achieved.

Transient 2 was the result of 35,000 miles traveled, 30 terabytes of footage, 300 hours of editing/coloring, and 3 speeding tickets. Farrell also adds:

The Phantom Flex4K is a camera that must be post triggered while shooting high speed. This works out well for capturing lightning because the camera is always recording and rewriting to internal ram. As soon as a bolt appears in my view finder I trigger the camera to save what has been stored in the ram. Shooting at high frame rates requires a lot of light. Therefore, I mostly used my Zeiss Otus 28, 55, and 85mm lenses wide open at f1.4.
