Providing a staggering 7,500 frames per second (fps) at mega pixel resolution and reduced resolution operation to 1.5 million frames per second, the FASTCAM SA5 high speed camera delivers unsurpassed light sensitivity (ISO 10000-test compliant with ISO12232 S sat) and dynamic range through its 12-bit monochrome (36-bit RGB color) sensor with 20 micron square pixels. The FASTCAM SA5 will meet the requirements of the most demanding applications in research and development due to its unrivaled sensitivity, frame rate, and resolution.

The FASTCAM SA5 is provided with a remote control keypad, complete with built in five-inch LCD screen. Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software comes complete with Software Developers Kit (SDK) for users wishing to integrate camera control, replay and download into their own dedicated software.

Available in three models:

  • 775k: Max framerate speed 775,000 frames per second at reduced resolution.
  • 1000k: Max framerate speed 1,000,000 frames per second at reduced resolution.
  • 1300k: Max framerate speed 1,300,000 frames per second at reduced resolution.

Minimum exposure time capabilities for 1000k and 1300k is at a blistering 369ns*

Available with four memory options: 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB.

Target applications include:

  • Materials research
