High speed imaging products include low-cost solutions to highly specialized, intensified systems for biofluorescence and combustion analysis. High speed, slow motion cameras featuring high definition (HD) resolution up to 2,000 frames per second (fps) are designed for motion picture, reality TV, sports and broadcast applications. For production fault-finding, Photron offers high speed imaging systems with multiple miniature cube or pencil camera heads. For hostile and extreme environments, our high-G rated camera systems are utilized in vehicle crash testing and/or military weapons proving.
Photron is a global leader in developing high-speed CMOS sensors to enable the fastest action to be recorded and replayed in detailed slow motion. This sophisticated technology allows the viewer, both engineers and laymen, to see and understand what occurs in the millisecond violence and excitement of a high speed event or phenomena.

High-speed cameras have become an established tool in the modern workplace. Their ability to record at hundreds or thousands of frames per second for subsequent slow motion replay and analysis has made them an important tool for applications such as ballistics, materials testing, automotive safety testing, and fluidics. Their capabilities are significantly increased when they are coupled with innovative non-contact measurement techniques such as digital image correlation (DIC) to provide invaluable information as to what is occurring on the surface of a solid, or through particle image velocimetry (PIV) in a seeded fluid or gaseous flows.
Photron USA, Inc. of San Diego has launched a new versatile, high performance high-speed camera system. The FASTCAM NOVA brings together unique CMOS image sensor technologies and extensive high-speed digital imaging expertise that provide the camera with the flexibility to be used in a wide variety of applications. Available in three different models, the NOVA offers 12-bit image recording rates up to 12,800 frames per second (fps) at megapixel image resolution, and shutter speeds less than 300 nanoseconds. Recording rates to 1,000,000fps are available at reduced image resolutions. All of these things are available from a camera that is rugged, compact, lightweight and provides the best light sensitivity in its class.
Photron, Inc. recently announced the new 32GB memory option for the FASTCAM Mini AX, FASTCAM Mini UX, and FASTCAM Mini WX High Speed Camera Systems. The new memory option is doubled at 32GB; other memory options still available are 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB. Photron’s recently introduced product families are also renowned for their remarkable light sensitivity.
Photron Inc. recently introduced the FASTCAM Mini AX200 High Speed Camera System. This new high-speed video camera features superior light sensitivity of ISO 40,000 monochrome and 16,000 color. The system also offers 1,024 x 1,024 pixel resolution at up to 6,400 frames per second and up to 900,000 frames per second at reduced resolution.
Photron Inc. recently introduced the new FASTCAM Mini AX 100 featuring unparalleled light sensitivity and low noise performance. This new camera is capable of achieving ISO 40,000 for monochrome and ISO 16,000 for color. Applications include on-board and off-board automotive safety testing, defense/aerospace research, biomechanics, material sciences, fluidics (PIV), and life sciences.
In this video, Andrew Bridges from Photron, explains demonstrated results using their series of polarization systems, including the CRYSTA, a high-speed 2D polarization camera that enables you to see the stress in transparent and semi-transparent materials and fluids.
In this Photonics West 2019 video, Andrew Bridges from Photron walks us through an in depth understanding of the benefits and use of being able to visualize and qualify the birefringent retardation in transparent and semi-transparent materials and fluids.
Andrew Bridges discusses CRYSTA, which takes a conventional high-speed camera and adds an affixed micropolarizer array to a CMOS sensor, giving it the ability to detect phase difference, and allowing the operator to plot birefringence or retardation in transparent or semi-transparent materials.
This year at Photonics West, Andrew Bridges with Photron focused on his company’s line of miniature high speed cameras.

Digital Image Correlation, Particle Image Velocimetry, and Schlieren Imaging provide engineers in the aerospace industry with insight into the strength and durability of materials, the characteristics of engine combustion processes, the aerodynamics of objects in flight, and much more.
For years high-speed imaging has provided engineers with detailed analysis of projective tracking, missile launches, combustion testing, engine testing, fuselage testing, component testing, materials testing, flow visualization and more.
Automotive engineers are continually faced with new vehicle safety requirements and highway emissions standards. The auto industry therefore requires advanced imaging systems to analyze video of everything from onboard and offboard vehicle safety tests to static airbag deployments.
Wichita State University’s National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) is using high-speed digital cameras, manufactured by Photron, in their Virtual Engineering Laboratory in a variety of testing modes such as high-impact dynamic events.
There are many factors that are important to consider when you purchase a high-speed camera. This article discusses the important considerations involved in selecting the appropriate high-speed video camera for your specific needs.
