The Phantom VEO 640 is a 6 Gpx throughput high-speed camera with a 4 Mpx sensor that images at 35mm. The full sized, proprietary, CMOS sensor means bigger pixels increasing field of view, depth of field, and sensitivity. Camera flexibility is increased through interchangeable lens mounts.  Operators can choose between Nikon, PL, C and Cannon EF (with electronic control) mounts.

The VEO 640 body is made from milled aluminium keeping the design lightweight and compact at only 5 lbs. The housing unit includes protection from airflow through a sealed electronics compartment.  This means that dust and dirt does not penetrate where the sensitive electronics and sensor are stored as air is only passed over the cooling portions of the camera.

With two body styles there is something for everyone.  The S model boasts a variety of options to increase durability and flexibility.  On-camera controls for remote and un-tethered recording, ruggedized connectors, and the removable CFast 2.0 media makes on location workflow much more convenient.  The L (light) model is often found in labs or offices.  This style provides basic software-based imaging without unnecessary features.
