Hi indrakorg

Firstly, you need to change your user name to your real name. So are the rules. Secondly, I donĀ“t think it is an Arri camera, so maybe this should be in a different forum ;-) Thirdly though I would very much like to find out the same things you want. I believe the camera looks like the one below, from the BBC "Life" series.
So if anyone knows what camera this is, I would very much like to know as well. I thought Phantom when I watched the series, but then grabbed this photo from the "behind scenes" - thing.

A v640 gets 2700fps and a HS-2 gets 2000 at 1920*1080. I think your maths is faulty.

Time Warp used cameras from Vision Research (Phantom, Photron and others. For the past couple of years the American edition of Mythbusters has used a Phantom v12.1.
