High-Speed Video Camera

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Columbia, MD, offers the Hyper Vision HPV-1 ultra-high-speed video camera that can record up to one million frames per second. It produces high-definition images at a resolution of 312 x 260 — up to 80,000 pixels per image. It features storage capabilities built directly into the camera’s imaging chip, enabling it to save 100 monochrome shots in BMP, TIF, or AVI formats. The camera can be used with general-purpose Nikon F-mount SLR lenses, and features dedicated control unit software that enables quick-start recording.

Optical Zoom Module

New Scale Technologies, Victor, NY, offers the Squiggle optical zoom module for phone cameras that uses the patented SQUIGGLE motor. The module achieves lens travel greater than 4 mm with better than 10-micrometer closed-loop repeatability. The module’s cross-section of 10 x 12 mm is slightly larger than the 8-mm-diameter lens. The module’s 18-mm length reflects the optical and physical properties of the lens elements and image sensor. The final dimensions of the module are determined by the customer’s choice of optics and image sensor.
