Measurement & Analysis Camera Systems offer the Fastcam SA1 from Photron that provides blistering fast speed, unmatched light sensitivity and true 12-bit performance. Capable of over 5,000 full frames per second (fps) at mega pixel (1K x 1K) resolution, the brand new CMOS sensor provides true twelve bit pixel depth and a reduced resolution of 650,000 fps.
Building on the experience gained with the EMMY award winning ultima APX and ultima APX-RS cameras, the Fastcam SA1 is a light sensitive camera and provides colour fidelity with 12-bit performance. The FASTCAM SA1 provides the perfect tool for those looking for mega pixel resolution at true high speeds, as well as those demanding sensitivity and performance with an SDI digital output for TV/movie and commercial work.
The Fastcam SA1 is now available with three memory options such as:
- Eight (8) Gigabytes for around six seconds record duration at full resolution 1,000 fps.
- Sixteen (16) Gigabytes for over twelve seconds record duration at full resolution 1,000 fps.
- Thirty two (32) Gigabytes for over twenty four seconds record duration at full resolution 1,000 fps.
The Fastcam SA1 is supplied with Photron’s new RS422 LCD equipped keypad, making computer-free setup and operation a good deal easier. Two rear panel BNC connectors provide users with both composite video (NTSC or PAL) as well as SDI (720i) outputs.
The option of a one micro second shutter (previously 2µs) and reduced time between two frames make the Fastcam SA1 ideal for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Digital Image Correlation (DIS) and ballistics research.
