Replacement camera models: Pharsighted E9-100s or Pharsighted E9-80s

The ultra-high-speed, high-resolution Photron Fastcam IS-1M camera system is a revolutionary 312 x 260 pixel resolution ISIS (in-situ image storage) CCD sensor system designed to capture a wide range of ultra high-speed phenomena at up to 1,000,000 frames per second (fps).

The IS-1M employs an innovative ISIS-CCD, also known as IS-CCD, to record an impressive one million frames per second (fps) with a full resolution of 316 by 260 pixels. This technology, which stands for In-Situ Image Storage-CCD, utilizes a storage buffer located next to the light-sensitive area of each 10-bit pixel, resulting in a significant boost in speed compared to traditional high-speed cameras.

The Photron Fastcam IS-1M is highly responsive to light and can effectively capture various high-speed events, even in dimly lit environments. With its 100 frame image buffer, it can record synchronous footage for a considerable amount of time, making it suitable for analyzing ultra high-speed phenomena like ink jet droplet measurement, micro PIV, combustion, crack propagation, and blast dynamics.

1. Ultra-high-speed recording of up to one million frames per second.

This newly developed IS-CCD*1 achieves ultra-fast recording speeds of up to one million fps. 

*1 The IS-CCD is Shimadzu's unique CCD with image storage incorporated into the sensor chip to permit high-speed image recording. 

* Patent US 6972795, US 7176972, EP/NL/GB/FR 1278246, DE 60104000.7 

This product's IS-CCD image sensor was jointly developed in collaboration with Kinki University's Professor Takeharu Etoh.

2. Ultra-high-speed and high spatial resolution

With a conventional high-speed video camera, the spatial resolution drops off as the recording speed is increased. However, the HPV-2 spatial resolution does not deteriorate at high frame rates. It maintains excellent 312 x 260-pixel resolution at all recording speeds to permit detailed analysis of high-speed phenomena.

3. HPV-2 can capture a wide range of high-speed phenomena with the high sensitivity CCD.

A highly sensitive image sensor is essential to capture ultra-high-speed images using extremely short exposure times. The IS-CCD incorporates a high-sensitivity design that expands the light sensitive area per pixel to handle recording of a variety of high-speed phenomena.

4. Easy-to-use, multifunction software

Dedicated software in the control unit allows recording to start immediately after performing a few simple settings. Recorded images can be saved in general image formats such as AVI, BMP, JPEG, TIFF and 16-bit TIFF.
