SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9, 2013 — Photron Inc’s ultrahigh-speed imaging system, the FastCam SA-Z, features 21,000 fps at megapixel resolution and more than 2 million fps at reduced resolution, making it possible to view previously unseen phenomena, events and high-speed processes. The CMOS sensor’s enhanced global electronic shutter operates from 1 ms (standard) down to 159 ns and can freeze the fastest motion without blur. The camera delivers 12-bit pixel depth (analog-to-digital converters). Its 20-μm-square pixel format enables camera rotation without sacrificing image resolution. The included PFV (Photron FastCam Viewer) camera control/replay/editing software can rotate the image back in real time. Offering 8-, 16-, 32- and 64-GB onboard memory options, the system is suitable for applications including ballistics, plasma and arc studies, materials science, fluidics, velocimetry, shock waves and detonics.
