2.) Lens Mounts: The Phantom Miro cameras come with exchangeable mounts. Besides Canon EF mount there are further Nikon F (supporting N/F as well as N/G lenses), C and PL mount cameras available. The Phantom Flex models come with PL-mount by default with Nikon F/G and Canon EF mounts as options. The Phantom v and VEO-series comes with Nikon F mount by default, with Canon EF, PL and C-mount as options, with the only exception of the v642 Broadcast, which comes with PL mount by default (still offering Canon EF and Nikon as options).
 
In all cases the Canon EF mounts feature electronic coupling for aperture and focus control and to display the focal length on the cameras' LCDs (LC versions).
 
That said, there are at least 4 different versions of the Canon EF mount: One for the Flex4K, one for the Flex2K, v-xxxx and v-xxx models (#VRI-MNT-EOS-VSERIES), one for the v-x.x models (#VRI-EXTSHUTTER-EOS-MOUNT, this mount incorporated an external shutter) and yet another one for the Miro and VEO models (#VRI-MNT-MIROLCM-EOS). To add to the confusion, the 2016's Birger price list mentions 2 dedicated mounts for Vision Research cameras: #RD-EF1-VR0-RS1 for Vision Research v9 (should be identical to Vision Research #VRI-EXTSHUTTER-EOS-MOUNT) and #RD-EF1-VR1-RS1 for Vision Research Phantom.
3.) CineMag I/II and IV are not interchangeable - cameras using version I or II will not work with IV and vice versa.
4.) Subspace Pictures fit an underwater housing to the Vision Research Phantom Flex4K, at least for PhotoCineRent.com. For more options also refer to System Cameras > Accessories > UW Housings
 
Footnotes:
5 PCC = Phantom Camera Control software used to remotely operate the cameras from a PC. It's only available for Windows. It provides video monitoring and full remote control functionality.
Phantom RC = wired remote control unit, which also incorporates an LCD to display current footage
6 File Types/Formats: Phantom cameras support the following file types: Cine, Cine Compressed, Cine RAW, AVI, MP4, MOV (Apple ProRes, uncompressed Quicktime), Multipage TIFF, MXF (PAL/NTSC), BMP (Windows/OS/2), PCX, TGA, TIFF, LEAD, JPEG, JTIF, RAW, DNG and DPX. That's what the spec sheets say. From other documents it rather seems like they always record in Cine RAW and the list above applies to PCC output. Drop me a line, if you know better.
