Vision Research, a manufacturer of digital high-speed imaging systems, extends the company’s Phantom 1 Megapixel (Mpx) v-Series line of digital high-speed cameras with the addition of the v411. This addition provides consumers with even more options to get the performance they need within budget.
The v411 uses the same technology as other 1Mpx v-Series cameras, adding a camera with 4Gpx/s throughout to the line. The v411 has a top speed at full resolution of 4200 fps. V-Series cameras feature high-definition, widescreen 1280×800 CMOS sensors and have larger 20 micron pixels that allow shooting in low light, which is often an issue with high speed imaging.
The cameras also have a number of unique features, including Phantom CineMag compatibility for on-camera storage and long record time applications. They also include Image-Based Auto-Trigger functionality, Extreme Dynamic Range and an internal capping shutter for hands-free and remote black references.
Additionally, for the first time ever, Vision Research is offering upgrades within the Phantom 1 Mpx v-Series camera family. Now users with a limited budget can buy at the low end and upgrade performance later. Upgrades are available for the v311 to the v611 or the v411 to the v711.
The latest Phantom v-Series cameras offer additional connectivity and on-camera controls that improve signaling and provide users with more options for enhancing their research and testing industrial applications. Additionally, the v-Series cameras feature a new white body, which is ideal for shooting outside, particularly in deserts or test ranges, as it reflects the sun and keeps the camera cool.
