The FASTCAM SA-Z offers scientists, researchers and engineers the ability to capture high resolution digital images at ultra-high speed to see and understand previously invisible processes and events. Using Photron’s proprietary CMOS image sensor technology, the FASTCAM SA-Z combines high recording rates with outstanding light sensitivity and excellent image quality to provide a highly versatile ultra-high speed digital camera.
The ultra-high speed FASTCAM SA-Z provides megapixel image resolution at frame rates up to 21,000fps from its highly light sensitive image sensor (monochrome ISO 50,000) with 12-bit dynamic range delivering the ultimate imaging performance. The FASTCAM SA-Z provides frame rates greater than 2 million fps at reduced image resolution and shutter speeds as short as 159 nanoseconds (export restrictions may apply).
An innovative camera body design exploiting heat-pipe technology provides a thermally stable and reliable high-speed imaging system suitable for use in the most challenging environments. Available in 12-bit monochrome or 36-bit color versions with recording memory options from 8GB to 128GB, the FASTCAM SA-Z offers versatility of use in a wide range of scientific and industrial applications.
Standard operational features of the FASTCAM Sa-Z include a mechanical shutter to allow remote system calibration, dual-channel Gigabit Ethernet Interface for fast image download, and internal memory card drives allowing image download and storage to low cost removable recording media.
