Photron, Inc., a global leader and manufacturer of high speed cameras and image analysis software, introduces the powerful, high performance Fastcam SA8 high speed camera with 1280 x 1024 pixel image resolution up to 3,500 frames per second (fps). Increased frame rates are also available at reduced resolution, including 1280 x 720 (720p) at 5,000 fps. The innovative CMOS sensor technology offers high quality, low noise images with superior light sensitivity that previously has not been available from other high speed imaging systems. Photron’s Fastcam SA8 digital sensor provides impressive sensitivity: ISO 5,000 for monochrome and ISO 2,500 for color, fully compliant with ISO 12232 Ssat standard. The sensor size at 12.8 x 10.2 mm is compatible with one-inch C-mount and Nikon G-type lenses. Two memory options include 4GB and 8GB with convenient high performance Gigabit Ethernet interface to quickly download images to your PC.
The compact SA8 camera is housed in a rugged, sealed camera body, making it ideal for imaging in harsh environments without ingress of dust and other contaminants. Applications include automotive safety testing, engineering research, materials science, fluid dynamics, military/defense/aerospace research and ballistic imaging.
