Fastcam SA8 high-speed camera

Photron, a provider of high-speed cameras and image analysis software, has introduced the Fastcam SA8 high-speed camera with 1,280 x 1,024 pixel image resolution and up to 3,500 fps. 

Increased frame rates are also available at reduced resolution, including 1,280 x 720 (720p) at 5,000 fps.

Photron’s Fastcam SA8 digital sensor provides sensitivity up to ISO 5,000 for monochrome and ISO 2,500 for colour. The sensor size, at 12.8 x 10.2mm, is compatible with one-inch C-mount and Nikon G-type lenses. Two memory options include 4GB and 8GB with Gigabit Ethernet interface.

The SA8 camera is housed in a sealed camera body, making it suitable for imaging in harsh environments without ingress of dust and other contaminants. Applications include automotive safety testing, engineering research, materials science, fluid dynamics, military/defence/aerospace research, and ballistic imaging.
