The NBA's "Phantom" cameras don't just capture incredible athletic feats in super slow motion; they add texture to highlight-reel sequences through the use of far more natural camera angles. For once, plays aren't just captured within the context of a broadcast, but in vivid, high-definition detail from a completely fresh vantage point. It honestly transforms the viewing experience, as you can see from the NBA's Phantom rendering of Blake Griffin's left-handed finish over Spencer Hawes from Monday night's game against the 76ers.
