Vision Research has announced the Phantom T1340 high-speed camera. The T1340 is a 4 Mpx high-speed camera in a compact housing that is designed for scientific, industrial, and range based applications. However, there is no reason why it couldn’t be used for some specialized filmmaking applications.
The Phantom T1340, a high-resolution camera that captures images up to 13 Gpx/second, doubling the capabilities of other 4 Megapixel cameras in its class.
The camera uses a 2048 x 1952 low-noise sensor and it can shoot at up to 3,120 fps in that resolution. In HD it can shoot up to 6,160 fps, and at reduced resolutions, it can shoot at up to 113,510 fps.
