High speed imaging products include low-cost solutions to highly specialized, intensified systems for biofluorescence and combustion analysis. High speed, slow motion cameras featuring high definition (HD) resolution up to 2,000 frames per second (fps) are designed for motion picture, reality TV, sports and broadcast applications. For production fault-finding, Photron offers high speed imaging systems with multiple miniature cube or pencil camera heads. For hostile and extreme environments, our high-G rated camera systems are utilized in vehicle crash testing and/or military weapons proving.
Photron is a global leader in developing high-speed CMOS sensors to enable the fastest action to be recorded and replayed in detailed slow motion. This sophisticated technology allows the viewer, both engineers and laymen, to see and understand what occurs in the millisecond violence and excitement of a high speed event or phenomena.

Photron, Inc. recently introduced the PhotoCam SpeederV2 as a portable, standalone high-speed camera system is specially designed for production fault-finding. This camera system allows workers to quickly view and identify production errors on the integrated 7-inch LCD remote touch screen, without the need for a computer or network infrastructure.
Photron, Inc. recently launched a new website featuring high speed imaging cameras, systems, and applications. The new website also features an extensive gallery of high-speed footage captured from Photron’s cameras and slow-motion systems.
Photron, Inc. recently announced the new 32GB memory option for the FASTCAM Mini AX, FASTCAM Mini UX, and FASTCAM Mini WX High Speed Camera Systems. The new memory option is doubled at 32GB; other memory options still available are 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB. Photron’s recently introduced product families are also renowned for their remarkable light sensitivity.
Photron Inc. recently introduced the FASTCAM Mini AX200 High Speed Camera System. This new high-speed video camera features superior light sensitivity of ISO 40,000 monochrome and 16,000 color. The system also offers 1,024 x 1,024 pixel resolution at up to 6,400 frames per second and up to 900,000 frames per second at reduced resolution.
Photron Inc. recently introduced the new FASTCAM Mini AX 100 featuring unparalleled light sensitivity and low noise performance. This new camera is capable of achieving ISO 40,000 for monochrome and ISO 16,000 for color. Applications include on-board and off-board automotive safety testing, defense/aerospace research, biomechanics, material sciences, fluidics (PIV), and life sciences.
This year at Photonics West, Andrew Bridges with Photron focused on his company’s line of miniature high speed cameras.

Tim Callenbach gave us a closer look at two of Photron’s newest high-speed camera systems.
Photron launched two new high speed imaging solutions for slow motion analysis at Photonics West 2015. Andrew Bridges broke down both of the camera’s features and specifications for us this year. Watch the video to see if they can provide you with a solution for your next slow motion analysis application.
Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) can be extremely useful for the analysis of turbulent flow, transient flow, micro flow, and 3D volumetric flow studies within automotive, aerospace, bio-tech/medical, marine propulsion, electronics, and scientific research industries. Photron presents a technique using high speed FASTCAM cameras to obtain the time dependent velocity distributions in a Field-Of-View (FOV) of single and multi-phase flows which are very fast, turbulent, and complex.
Using the backlight/shadowgraphy imaging technique can provide high contrast object images for a better understanding of an object's shape or size. This technique shines a light towards a camera in order to create a white image. An object is then passed between the light source and the camera which creates a dark area on the image, or a shadow. This application note looks further into this imaging method, and walks through its optical setup and its application uses.
When it comes to attaining high quality images, the illumination source is just as important as the camera’s resolution and sensitivity. No matter how excellent the quality of a camera system is, it makes no difference to an image where the subject is incorrectly or poorly lit. High speed imaging applications can utilize a wide range of light sources for their subject matter. However, applications such as welding, ballistics, impact visualization, and shock wave analysis may require laser illumination. This white paper presents four examples utilizing a laser for illumination in a high speed imaging application.
This case study discusses the use of the FASTCAM SA-Z to effectively slow down the turbulent flow of motion through the acquisition of a large number of images played back at various slow speeds for frame by frame data analysis.
This case study describes a study on material deformation using the high-speed camera FASTCAM SA4.
