The Phantom Miro M / R / LC320S is a small, lightweight, rugged digital high-speed camera packed with advanced features, which now includes HD-SDI for advanced monitoring and workflow possibilities. The camera has advanced features previously available on cameras at twice the price, is easy to learn and use, and addresses applications in a wide variety of industries. Our new R-Series body style adds a rugged, high-g rated camera to the Miro family
The Miro 320S is a 2 megapixel camera with 3.2 Gigapixels/second (Gpx/s) throughput. This translates to 1380 fps at 1920 x 1200, or over 1500 fps at 1920 x 1080. The M320S uses microlenses on its custom-designed CMOS sensor with 10 µm pixel pitch to achieve great light sensitivity, and with 12-bit pixel depth you can expect excellent image quality.
Scientists and engineers can take advantage of the 3.2 Gpx/s throughput, precise timing, camera synchronization, flexible triggering, excellent light sensitivity, and many other advanced features to gain insight into products and processes. The camera allows you to see what cannot be seen with the human eye. Applications ranging from animal studies to PIV to product characterization are now possible with this accessible camera.
Artists now have access to a camera based on the Academy Award winning technology of the Phantom Flex for TV and new media applications.
These two uses -- scientific/engineering and entertainment/production -- each have their own data sheet that you can download from the sidebar to the right. ("M / R / LC-Series Family" and "Production" respectively.) Check them out!
Each Miro camera is compatible with Vision Research’s unique CineFlash storage technology. These removable, non-volatile storage devices slide into the camera body and provide a way to quickly save raw cine files from the camera's memory without the need for time-consuming and costly downloads. Later, remove the CineFlash module from the camera and insert it into the docking station connected to a computer. Cines stored on the CineFlash are now immediately available on the computer. You can also transfer the cines from the camera to your computer and edit the images using our Phantom Camera Control software (PCC). When ordering your camera,just specify if you want 60GB, 120GB or 240GB CineFlash storage. A 60GB CineFlash and Dock are standard with every camera purchase!
The Miro family supports four lens mounts: F-, C-, PL- or EOS. EOS mounts allow the use of Canon EF and EF-S automated lenses. Adjust lens aperture and focus either on-camera, or remotely using our Remote Control Unit or Phantom Camera Control software.
