High speed video recording generally results in underexposed images with short exposure time, making it difficult to increase the frame rate. “T4K82” incorporates the “Bright Mode” technology that boosts imaged brightness up to four times. “Bright Mode” realizes full HD video capture at 240 fps equivalent and QVGA video capture at 900 fps equivalent.
“T4K82” is capable of capturing high-quality, high-speed video even in the low-light conditions, and offers extended imaging functions on smartphones and tablets including smooth slow motion playback.
