Available in four different models, the FASTCAM NOVA camera system offers 12-bit image recording rates up to 16,000 frames per second (fps) at megapixel image resolution, and shutter speeds to 0.2µs. Recording rates to 1,100,000 fps are available at reduced image resolution.
The rugged, compact, lightweight NOVA system features an internal mechanical shutter for remote system calibration, a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet interface, memory segmentation, and compatibility with a number of standard lens formats to allow the use of Nikon G-Type, C-mount, and Canon EF lenses.
The camera system has a “sealed body” design that prevents dust and corrosive particles from contaminating sensitive electronics. FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software is included with each NOVA camera. An optional FASTDrive SSD can be used for the download of images at up to 1GB per second.
