UHS-V1212 1M Pixel 12 Gpx/s

UHS-V1212 is a full frame 1M Pixel camera with 12,600 fps native frame rate

The Phantom V1212 is introductory model of 1M pixel UHS cameras . With exceptional image quality, sensitivity, and speed, it is the workhorse of the ultra high-speed line



High-Speed 1M Pixel Camera

  • 1280 x 800 pixel proprietary CMOS sensor
  • Advanced triggering, up to 288GB internal RAM
  • Interchangeable lens mounts (Nikon F, C, PL, Canon EOS)
  • Frame rates from 100 to 820,500 fps
  • Integration times down to 500ns
  • 28µm pixels for impressive sensitivity, ISO 100,000
  • Monochrome or colour sensors

The Phantom UHS V-1212 is the entry to the UHS 1M pixel high speed cameras.  The V-1212 records at a native frame rate of  12,600 fps. Advanced triggering, huge internal RAM capacity, optional CineMag non-volatile storage and easy to use software, this camera is a flexible tool to stop motion of high-speed events in the lab or on the range.

Up to 11.7s seconds of full resolution 1280 x 800 images can be captured at 16,600 frames per second with the internal RAM.  This is then offloaded to a computer via Gigabit Ethernet, 10Gb or optionally to the onboard CineMag V for archiving and playback.

The proprietary CMOS sensor has large 28µm pixels which ensure high sensitivity with native ISO 100,000T (monochrome) or 10,000T (colour).

The optional on-board CineMag V non-volatile storage is the fastest way to offload RAM and enhances workflow. Transfer speeds of 1GB/s means 288GB of data can be saved in less than 5 minutes. 1Gb and 10Gb Ethernet interfaces are standard with data transfer rates up to 600MB/s.
