Phantom Miro family of digital cameras from Vision Research consists of high-speed cameras targeted at industrial applications ranging from vehicle crash testing to engineering and scientific research. Cameras feature a high-performance blend of resolution, speed, and light sensitivity for situations demanding high-speed image capture and motion analysis. Phantom Miro 1 entry-level unit can take images with a resolution of up to 640 x 480 pixels at any of eight fixed-frame rates, ranging from 50 to 500 fps. Phantom Miro 2 gives users the ability to control key camera parameters such as frame rates and shutter speeds in increments of one unit. Features include a maximum resolution of 640 x 480; frame rates from 1 to 1,000 fps; and the ability to record in either 8- or 10-bit pixel depth. Phantom Miro 3 is optimized for applications such as hydraulically controlled, gas energized (HYGE) crash simulations used in the automotive industry. It is rated to survive 100g acceleration and has a maximum resolution of 800×600 at up to 1000 fps. Phantom Miro 4 features the same high-performance CMOS imaging sensor with the ability to record at 800 x 600 at up to 2,200 fps, the highest resolution of the family. All cameras are based on the company’s CMOS sensor designs and offer a sensitivity rating of 4800 ISO monochrome.
