Vision Research Enhances Phantom v-Series High-Speed Camera Line with Upgraded Models

Phantom v211, v311, v611 and v711 Offer New Packaging, Improved Control Features

06/07/2011

Vision Research, a leading manufacturer of digital high-speed imaging systems, has enhanced its Phantom® v-Series line of 1 megapixel, high-speed cameras with the introduction of four upgraded models—the v211, v311, v611, and v711. The cameras, which include the same key specifications as earlier versions, are lighter weight, more compact and offer additional on-camera and connectivity controls.

“The Phantom v-Series product line is our high-performance family of cameras.  These cameras are well suited for a number of applications, including scientific research, product development, ballistics, explosion testing and more. The latest Phantom v-Series cameras broaden the usability of the line, while maintaining the same speed, sensitivity and high-performance they always have been known for,” notes Rick Robinson, Division VP Marketing, Vision Research.

Upgrades Define the Phantom

Vision Research designed the new line of Phantom cameras with flexibility and versatility at the forefront. Smaller and lighter weight than previous models, the cameras are housed in a white body that helps keep them cooler when shooting in direct sunlight. They include Vision Research’s custom designed 1280 x 800 CMOS sensor, which allows users to keep objects in the frame longer and see more of the event they are recording. All cameras support both 8- and 12-bit pixel depth and offer 8GB, 16GB or 32GB internal high-speed memory.
