The main competitors to the Phantom HD Gold 2K Camera are the Phantom Flex 2K as well as the Phantom Miro LC320S FullHD cameras. Renting either of those out is noticeably more expensive though. Each of the cameras is dedicated to a slightly different kind of shooting scenario.
The Phantom Miro LC321S is the smallest VRI camera. Dedicated for the sort of shooting that has to have a small gear weight as well as the ease of use. Freeride in high speed? This the camera for you. Its nearly as easy to operate as Sony Handycam camcorders. The downside is that at 16×9 frame aspect ratio it records only FullHD resolution. The Phantom HD Gold 2K Camera beats it here giving the user at 16:9 2080×1156 px so 107% FullHD either side. The 330 000 additional pixels may prove quite useful in post production. The Miro LC321S also offers a lower bit depth as well as a smaller sensor, similar in size to micro 4/3 which is not without its influence to the captured image characteristics. As for the Flex 2K, its ergonomy is very nearly identical to the Phantom HD Gold 2K Camera. It however offers both, a greater resolution as well as higher image sensitivity.
These advantages come at a premium though.If you are after a 4K resolution high speed footage acquisition, than the Phantom Flex 4K as well as the VEO 4K are also available with our High Speed Cameras Rental.
