Dustin Farewell, a storm chaser, captures amazing lightening with the help of Phantom 4k

Dustin Farewell has come up with Transient 2 which is an amazing and recently developed storm chasing time-lapse. He has compiled all his two years’ efforts of storm chasing done recorded with a Phantom Flex 4K. Lightening, in particular, stands out above the rest.

It was not easy to come across Transient 2 rather it took the traveling of 35000 miles, footage of 20 terabytes, editing, and coloring of around 300 hours and 2 speeding tickets. According to Farrell:

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 viewfinder 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
