WHEN IT’S TOO FAST TO SEE, AND TOO IMPORTANT NOT TO®
Flip-out LCD touchscreen for on-camera control and monitoring on LC-Series
You will wonder how we packed so much capability in such a
small package! Phantom Miro cameras have all the high-performance features
you’ve come to expect from Vision Research in a compact, rugged camera. The
M-Series models are ideal for laboratory and table-top environments where the
camera is controlled from a laptop or Remote Control Unit. The LC-Series add a
flip-out LCD touchscreen with on-camera controls for more portable applications.
1 Megapixel and 2 Megapixel custom-designed
CMOS sensors
Up to 3.2 Gigapixels/second throughput
High light sensitivity
Compact, rugged design
The Miro 110 and Miro 310 are based on a 1 Megapixel (Mpx), 1280 x 800,
custom-designed CMOS sensor from Vision Research. The Miro 110 has 1.6
Gigapixel/second (Gpx/s) throughput, yielding over 1600 frames-per-second
(fps) at full resolution. The Miro 310 doubles that for 3.2 Gpx/s throughput and
over 3200 fps at full resolution. With a 20 micron (µm) pixel size and 12-bit
depth, these cameras feature high-light sensitivity and great dynamic range.

Miro® Digital High-Speed Cameras
Maximum frame rates at reduced resolution are 400,000 fps for the Miro 110 and
650,000 for the Miro 310.
The Miro 120 is based on a >2Mpx sensor and 1.6 Gpx/s throughput. That
translates to 730 fps at 1920 x 1200, or over 1200 fps at 1152 x 1152.
The Miro 320S has 3.2 Gpx/s throughput. That’s 1380 fps at 1920 x 1200.
These cameras use microlenses on their custom-designed CMOS sensors with
10 µm pixel pitch to achieve high light sensitivity. With 12-bit pixel depth, they
also sport high dynamic range for excellent image quality. Maximum frame rate
at reduced resolution is 250,000 fps for the Miro 120 and 325,000 for the Miro
320S monochrome.
Phantom Miro LC-Series with Flip-out LCD Touchscreen
Depending on model, the minimum exposure time is either 1 µs or 2 µs for
sharp, blur-free images using a global electronic shutter. Vision Research’s
unique Extreme Dynamic Range (EDR) feature is standard on all models. With
EDR enabled, each pixel in a frame will receive one of two exposure times – a
short exposure for potentially overexposed pixels and a longer exposure for pixels
receiving normal light levels. This dramatically increases dynamic range and gets
you results even under the most demanding shooting conditions.
Advanced Features:
CineFlash Storage System
Image-Based Auto-Trigger
Convenient Presets for Common Applications
User-definable Presets can be Saved and Retrieved
Burst Mode
For PIV applications, using the Shutter Off mode allows for a straddle time of
500 ns on the Miro 110 and Miro 310 and 1.4 µs on the Miro 120 and
Miro 320S monochrome.
Extreme Dynamic Range
Continuous Recording
Auto-Exposure
An integrated internal mechanical shutter for remote and automatic black
references is another unique innovation from Vision Research that comes
standard on all models. This means each shot is properly referenced for
maximum image quality. And, there is no need to manually cap the lens or even
touch the camera since the black reference can be done remotely or automatically
before each shot.
Measurements
Multi-cine Acquisition
Internal Mechanical Shutter
AutoSet
A Nikon F-mount is standard on the cameras. Or, you can choose a C-mount,
PL-mount or EOS-mount. The EOS mount enables the use of compatible
EF and EF-S lenses, and focus and aperture can be adjusted via our Phantom
Remote Control Unit (RCU), Phantom Camera Control software (PCC), or using
an adjustment ring on the lens mount. Remote control of focus and aperture is a
huge benefit when cameras are remotely located and/or difficult to reach.
Each camera model comes in three memory configurations: 3 Gigabytes (GB),
6 GB or 12 GB. The high-speed internal memory can be segmented into as
many as 16 partitions for cine storage. (A cine is Vision Research’s raw image
format that stores all image data in a compact file.)
At the end of any shot, save your cine to the removable Phantom CineFlash
storage media at about 4GB/minute. CineFlash allows you to save a copy of your
cine to non-volatile memory for later retrieval, and avoid costly downtime

while you download from camera memory to a computer hard disk. When done
with an experiment, just remove the CineFlash from the camera, insert it into its
docking station connected to a PC, and drag-and-drop cines from the CineFlash
onto your computer disk.
Using PCC, you can then view, edit, enhance and analyze cine files. Easily
extract still shots, or convert cines into web- and presentation-compatible
formats for sharing with colleagues and documenting experiments. Use PCC’s
measurement tools to determine distances, angles and speed. Advanced
tools let you crop, scale, rotate and enhance cine files to get to the information
and insight you seek in images that have never before been seen.
Additional Features:
Gb Ethernet
Rechargeable Battery (Sony BP-U30 or BP-U60)
Control your camera with an extensive suite of tools in PCC via a Gb Ethernet
connection, or use the Phantom RCU and its easy-to-learn and easy-to-use
touchscreen interface.
Dimensions: (without handle or lens)
19 x 8.8 x 10 cm, 7.5 x 3.5 x 4 inches (M-Series),
19 x 9.8 x 10 cm, 7.5 x 3.85 x 4 inches (LC-Series)
Weight: 3.0 lbs, 1.4 kg (without CineFlash, battery or lens)
The LC-Series models have a flip-out LCD touchscreen for on-camera
control and monitoring. Camera settings can be changed with a few taps on
the touchscreen which doubles as a monitor for live preview and cine playback
from internal memory. The LCD user interface is available in multiple languages.
Operating Temperature and Humidity: 0° C to 40° C @
8% to 80% relative humidity, non-condensing
Tiered Service Contracts to protect your investment
Advanced control signals are available including a Frame Synchronization
signal (FSYNC) on the camera back panel. Trigger, Ready, IRIG In, Video Out, IRIG
Out and an Auxiliary signal connection (Event, Strobe, Memgate) are all available
on the standard capture cable.
Video Out is either NTSC or PAL on the Miro 110, Miro 310 and Miro 120.
An HD-SDI port is available on the Miro 320S. And, a live image is always
available in PCC, on the RCU or LC-Series touchscreen. You can adjust the video
to fill the available monitor space for framing a shot, and then zoom to a 1:1 pixel
representation (center-cropped) for focusing using the Autoset button on the
front of the camera.
Phantom Miro M310
Applications for the Phantom Miro cameras are as broad as your
imagination. Study flow dynamics in PIV applications; improve micro- and
nano-designs through small object imaging; diagnose and troubleshoot problems
with high-speed machinery; improve product designs by characterizing materials
and products under stress; any application that demands high-speed image
capture at one- to two-megapixel resolution with high light sensitivity is a
candidate for the Miro family of digital high-speed cameras.
