With more than 40 years of experience in slow motion analysis, Photron is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of high-speed video cameras. High-speed cameras facilitate the detailed analysis of projectile flights, missile launches, combustion processes, engine performance, fuselage durability, material strength, flow/particle movement and more. Photron provides a wide range of high-speed cameras with exceptional light sensitivity for slow motion analysis. Our FASTCAM series offers cameras with megapixel resolution and performance to 21,000 frames per second (fps), as well as 4-megapixel cameras that produce true HD resolution images at frame rates to 2,000fps.
Photron’s New FASTCAM Nova brings together unique CMOS image sensor technologies and extensive high-speed digital imaging expertise to provide a camera that is ideal for aerospace applications. The system, which is available in three different models, offers 12-bit image recording rates up to 12,800 frames per second (fps) at megapixel image resolution and shutter speeds to 0.2µs. Significantly faster frame rates – up to 1,000,000fps – are available at reduced image resolutions. All of this is available from a camera that provides the best light sensitivity in its class at ISO 64,000 monochrome.
