The Phantom v2511 camera is a powerful new addition to the Phantom® v-Series family of 1 megapixel digital high-speed cameras. Designed with speed and flexibility at the forefront, it is an excellent tool for researchers, scientists and engineers who need to capture high-resolution images at ultra-high speeds.

With our proprietary widescreen CMOS sensor, the v2511 can acquire and save more than 25 gigapixels-per-second of data. That means at its full megapixel resolution of 1280 x 800, you can achieve greater than 25,000 frames-per-second (fps). At reduced resolution, the v2511 provides frame rates of up to 677,600 fps.  It can also be ordered with our unique FAST option (export controlled), which enables frame rates up to 1,000,000 fps at 128 x 32 resolution. This option further expands the v2511’s versatility.

The custom-designed sensor has 28 micron pixels and an innovative design to ensure superb light-sensitivity -- essential in ultra-high-speed imaging. Standard 12-bit depth per pixel yields high dynamic range and provides excellent image quality.

The v2511 has the same Ease-of-Use features as all the other members of the Phantom High-Speed Camera line.  Common signal connections are conveniently located on its back panel, and include connections for timecode, dual power inputs, HD-SDI, a GPS input, frame synchronization, and trigger. The two HD-SDI ports can be configured in several ways. They can act as identical 4:2:2 HD-SDI ports where one port can be set up to provide an (optional) on-screen display for monitoring the on-camera controls and camera operation. They can also be configured as a single 4:4:4 Dual-Link HD-SDI port.

An internal mechanical shutter allows for automatic and remote black references, ensuring high image-quality even when you can't manually cover the lens prior to a shot.

The camera comes with a Nikon F-mount that also supports G-mount lenses. Or, you can equip it with a Canon EF mount or C-mount.

The v2511 can be equipped with 24GB, 48GB or 96GB of high-speed memory. You can also minimize cine save times with our Phantom CineMag feature that comes standard on the v2511. This feature lets you save any shot from high-speed RAM to a CineMag in seconds. The camera comes in color and monochrome versions.
