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.
Andrew Bridges discusses CRYSTA, which takes a conventional high-speed camera and adds an affixed micropolarizer array to a CMOS sensor, giving it the ability to detect phase difference, and allowing the operator to plot birefringence or retardation in transparent or semi-transparent materials.
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.
There are many factors that are important to consider when you purchase a high-speed camera. Photron USA, Inc. discusses the important factors involved in selecting the appropriate high-speed video camera for your specific information.
Turbulent flows laced with particles can be found everywhere, and include fuel droplets in combustion engines, airborne pollen, and water droplets in clouds. Even though they have been studied often, questions still remain that have to do with the particles’ inertia prohibiting them from following turbulence flow, making the Navier-Stokes equations insufficient for solving their equations. This white paper presents a project studying the dynamics of inertial droplets in a turbulent flow in a well-controlled environment. Measurements of droplet size distribution and turbulent dispersion rate in this study are done with interferometric particle imaging (IPI) and phosphorescent tagging techniques.
Femtosecond laser electronic excitation tagging (FLEET) is an optical measurement technique that permits quantitative velocimetry of unseeded air or nitrogen using a single laser and a single camera. This paper seeks to determine the fundamental precision of the FLEET technique.
This paper provides an overview of recent wind tunnel tests performed at the NASA Langley Research Center where the Background-Oriented Schlieren (BOS) technique was used to provide information pertaining to flow-field density disturbances. The facilities where the BOS technique was applied included the National Transonic Facility (NTF), Transonic Dynamics Tunnel (TDT), 31-Inch Mach 10 Air Tunnel, 15-Inch Mach 6 High-Temperature Air Tunnel, Rotor Test Cell at the 14×22 Subsonic Tunnel, and a 13-Inch Low-Speed Tunnel.
An incorrect or poorly lit subject affects the image, regardless of camera system quality. Therefore, the illumination source is just as important as the camera's resolution and sensitivity. See how a laser can be used for illumination in these four high-speed imaging application examples.
