Photron Fastcam SA-X2

High Performance High-Speed Camera System

Photron SA-X2

To meet the requirements of the most demanding high-speed imaging applications, a balance of high frame rate, image resolution, dynamic range and light sensitivity is required. The FASTCAM SA-X2 high-speed camera system provides an optimal combination of these critical parameters, with sufficient performance to capture high quality 12-bit megapixel images at up to 13,500 frames per second (fps).

Taking advantage of the very latest CMOS sensor technology, the FASTCAM SA-X2 utilizes large 20 micron square pixels to capture more light than any other high-speed camera. It is rated to ISO 25,000 (against the accredited ISO 12232 Ssat measurement standard) for monochrome 12-bit cameras and ISO 10,000 for 36-bit color (Bayer system, single sensor) cameras. Higher light sensitivity means less additional lighting is required, or higher framing rates or faster shutter speeds can be used with existing lighting conditiors.

The Fastcam SA-X2 is available in four memory configurations: 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB
