SAN DIEGO, 10 June 2015. Photron USA Inc. in San Diego is introducing the FASTCAM Mini WX100 high-definition (HD) 4-megapixel video high-speed camera for military and aerospace research, biomechanics, fluid dynamics and particle image velocimetry (PIV), materials science, onboard and offboard automotive safety testing, and life sciences.

Photron's lightweight, single-body electro-optical camera is for operation in high shock and vibration environments, such as high-speed military testing and high-G automotive safety testing.

The camera comes with standard F-mount and C-mount lens mounts. It measures 120 by 120 by 99 millimeters, and weighs 3.5 pounds. It provides 2,048-by-2,048-pixel resolution at rates faster than 1,000 frames per second (fps), 1080 HD pixel resolution to 2,000 fps, and higher frame rates to 80,000 fps at reduced resolution.
