Ember. It’s a cinematic beast in a very small package. With an all new super 35 global shutter sensor with expanded dynamic range, it shoots 4K 800FPS, 5K 600FPS, and a whole bunch of other speeds and frames.

Ember can record up to a 46min clip and record time is only limited by the 4TB SSD.  The chassis is completely redesigned and features an iOS App based workflow that is simple, fast and efficient.  Our mission was to go from capture to share as quickly as possible with the Ember.

Ember is a 100mm (4 inch) cube and weighs 820g, optimized for flight.  It features a locking E mount and some really nice tablet, monitor, and accessory mounting solutions.  It will run for 2+ hours on our SL4 battery and can be powered off just about any battery using our included D tap cable. 

Freefly designed Ember to be the most efficient high speed camera ever. It’s small, light, and insanely fun to use. Ember is unique in that it can record continuous high speed footage with no ram based clip limit since it records directly to a 4TB internal SSD. 

Shooting high speed is now just like shooting anything else, push record to start and stop, and Ember captures everything to solid state memory - as simple... as that.

The Ember app for iOS means you can go from capture to sharing in seconds.
