Vision Research has announced the new Phantom Miro eX series of high-speed digital cameras that can shoot 500 to 1200 frames per second. The Miro eX1 and eX2 can do that in resolutions of 640 x 480 while the Miro eX4 can deliver the high-speed frames in 800 x 600 resolution.
The Phantom Miro eX also offers super-fast exposure times as low as two microseconds (1/500,000 second), allowing users to freeze fast-moving objects and eliminate blur from their video. The custom-designed CMOS sensors each feature impressive light sensitivity, with ISO-12232 ratings of 4800 for monochrome and 1200 for color, ensuring that the cameras will perform in the most challenging of lighting environments.
The Miro eX features a conductive fiber filled polycarbonate body, which reduce the cameraâ€™s overall weight to 1.5 pounds (without the lens). Vision Research also redesigned the grip to allow the camera to be more comfortable in the hand, thereby reducing any fatigue from ongoing use.
