SAN DIEGO, 5 April 2012. High-speed camera specialist Photron Inc. in San Diego is introducing the Fastcam SA-X that shoots photos as quickly as 12,500 frames per second at 1,024-by-1,024-pixel resolution, for defense and aerospace research, ballistics imaging, combustion research, shock waves and detonation applications, and other activities that require visualization of complex high speed phenomena.
The Fastcam SA-X camera has as much as 64 gigabytes on-board memory, as well as light sensitivity at 25,000 ISO monochrome measured to ISO standard 12232 Ssat specification. The electro-optics device has a 20-micron pixel size with 12-bit A/D converter, dual high speed gigabit Ethernet interface, automated camera triggering, and frame synchronization to external devices, including non-stable frequencies.
An optional keypad or Photron's Photron Fastcam Viewer (PFV) software can control the camera. A capping shutter is included for automated image calibration. A software development kit is included to integrate the camera with user-specific software and wrappers for MATLAB and LabVIEW.
