All Phantom Miro cameras are small, lightweight, rugged digital high-speed cameras packed with advanced features. The Miro 320S includes HD-SDI video 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.

The Miro 320S performance level is available in three body styles. The M-Series is a general purpose camera targeted at the widest variety of applications. The R-Series is a rugged camera for harsher environments. The LC-Series has a flip-out LCD touchscreen interface for camera control and cine playback.

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. Frame rates up to 325,000 fps are available at reduced resolutions. The Miro 320S uses microlenses on its custom-designed CMOS sensor with 10µm 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. Check them out!

Each Miro camera is compatible with Vision Research's new and unique CineFlash storage technology. These removable, non-volatile storage devices slide into the camera body and provide a way to quickly save shots 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 120GB or 240GB CineFlash storage. A 120GB CineFlash and Dock come with every M, R or LC camera purchase!

The M-, R-, and LC-Series come with a battery that can power the camera when AC power is not available or is lost during an experiment.

Each Miro camera supports four lens mounts: Nikon F/G, C, PL or EOS. EOS mounts allow the use of Canon EF and EF-S automated lenses. Adjust lens aperture and focus remotely using our Remote Control Unit or Phantom Camera Control software.

These cameras also have a number of other advanced features including an internal capping shutter, Image-Based Auto-Trigger, camera synchronization, immediate playback of recorded cines, and more!
