Photron, Inc. introduces the ultra-high-speed imaging system, the FASTCAM SA-Z, featuring 21,000 frames per second at megapixel resolution.  The new SA-Z CMOS sensor provides over 2,000,000 frames per second (fps) at reduced resolution, making it possible to view previously unseen phenomenon, events, and high speed processes with excellent image quality and clarity.  The enhanced global electronic shutter operates from 1-millisecond (standard) down to 159 nanoseconds (export restrictions apply), and is capable of freezing the fastest motion, without blur. Product6_IN

Photron’s powerful ultra-high speed imaging system offers increased light sensitivity and 12-bit pixel depth (analog-to-digital converters, or ADC). Applying the reputable ISO 12232 Ssat standard, the light sensitivity measurements are ISO 25,000 for monochrome and 10,000 for color.  The camera’s 20 micron-square pixel format is ideal for situations where the camera needs to rotate without sacrificing image resolution that often occurs when other aspect ratio/pixel formats are rotated. The FASTCAM SA-Z system includes Photron’s proprietary, award-winning PFV camera control/replay/editing software which can also be conveniently used to rotate the image back, in real time.

The new SA-Z high speed camera has two SD card slots and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports to enable quick and easy image transfer/off load.  With four onboard memory options, 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB, Photron’s highest speed camera system is well-suited for ballistics, plasma and arc studies, materials science, fluidics, velocimetry, shock waves and detonics applications.
