U LTRA HIGH-SPEED VIDE O S Y S T E M
High-Speed Video System
Next generation CMOS sensor
technology providing 7,500 fps,
1K x 1K pixels
The Photron FASTCAM SA5 will meet the requirements of the most
demanding applications in research and development due to its unrivaled
sensitivity, frame rate and resolution.
This high performance will permit the SA5 to be applied to areas of research
once dismissed as unsuitable for digital high-speed imaging.
Building on the success of Photron’s Emmy award winning high speed
cameras our sensor design improves sensitivity, image quality and color
reproduction.
The FASTCAM SA5 delivers mega-pixel resolution at 7,500 fps, an
impressive maximum frame rate of 775,000 fps and a 1 microsecond
exposure time. Optional one million fps and 369 ns shutter capabilities are
available subject to export restrictions.
Benefits
