Imaginative and prescient Analysis has introduced its new Phantom cameras. The primary is the TMX 5010, which is taken into account an entry-level digicam within the Phantom TMX series – but nonetheless goes as much as 1.16 million frames per second. This collection additionally contains cameras just like the insanely quick TMX7510 (which fits all the way in which as much as 1.75 million frames per second).
The opposite is the T3610, which solely goes as much as a comparatively modest 875,000 frames per second at minimal decision. Each cameras function a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor for max light-gathering potential, and each provide a most decision of simply over 720p at 1280 x 800 pixels.
The Phantom TMX 5010, Imaginative and prescient Analysis says, is one among their “most versatile, full featured cameras making it ideally suited for all kinds of purposes”. At its most decision of 1280×800, it shoots a powerful 50,725 frames per second and contains as much as 512GB of RAM to have the ability to buffer the previous couple of seconds of what it sees.
It encompasses a backside-illuminated sensor, which it says reaches as much as 95ns with the FAST choice, and places out as much as 50 gigapixels per second. The slowest this digicam will go is 100fps. To get that 1.16 million frames per second, you’ll have to allow that FAST choice, which implies you’re dropping all the way down to a brilliant letter field 1280×32 pixels of decision in commonplace mode or 640×64 pixels in binned mode. Not nice for cinematic use, however ideally suited for the scientific functions supposed for a digicam like this the place it’s essential to shoot that quick.
The Phantom T3610 is a bit more compact and modest than the TMX 5010 above. It additionally presents the identical 1280×800 most decision, however with a body fee of 38,040 frames per second and as much as 256GB of RAM. Its FAST choice is a little bit slower than the TMX 5010, too, at 190ns, for a nonetheless very spectacular most body fee of 875,000 frames per second with 36 Gigapixels per second throughput.
Just like the TMX 5010, nevertheless, it additionally incorporates a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, with the identical 1280×800 pixel decision, 18.5um pixel measurement (37um with binning enabled), the identical 23.7 x 14.8mm bodily dimensions (Tremendous 35mm, basically) and a bit depth of 12-bit. It additionally presents the identical gentle sensitivity and seems to be precisely the identical sensor – at the very least in keeping with the specs.
For instance of what the brand new cameras can do, Imaginative and prescient Analysis posted this video shot on the T3610, themed across the 4th of July.
With regards to what these cameras will set you again… Nicely, no value has been talked about to date, though you recognize they’re going to be past the budgets of 99.99% of us. It’s the type of factor you’d hire reasonably than purchase outright. In the event you actually need to know, although, you’ll must contact Imaginative and prescient Analysis and ask them your self. The TMX 5010 is already delivery and the T3610 is anticipated to ship subsequent month.
