The Phantom® v1210 and v1610Cameras.

Vision Research (Wayne, NJ) has introduced the Phantom® v1210 and v1610 cameras. The devices feature high-definition and widescreen 1280 × 800 CMOS sensors. Both cameras are based on proprietary sensors offering larger 28-micron pixels that allow for sensitivity when shooting in low light. The v-Series additions capture images at more than 12,000 fps (12 gigapixels/second) in full resolution when utilizing the v1210, and more than 16,000 fps (16 gigapixels/second) when the v1610 is used. If higher speeds are needed, reduced resolution images are available up to 650,000 or 1,000,000 fps when the FAST option is used. The v1210 can be configured with 12GB, 24GB, or 48GB of memory, and the v1610 has 24GB, 48GB, or 96GB memory options. That memory, which can be segmented into as many as 63 partitions, allows continuous shooting of back-to-back shots without the need for constant downloading. The cameras offer 12-bit pixel depth. Both cameras come standard with the Vision Research CineMag interface, allowing a user to save a high-speed shot from camera memory to non-volatile storage. The cameras come with built-in, on-camera controls (OCC) so that settings can be changed without connection to a PC or laptop.
