High Speed Camera Snaps 1000 Pictures Per Second

by Paul Strauss

Phantom Miro 3 Digital CameraNeed to take photos in really, really slow motion? Look no further than Vision Research’s Phantom Miro high speed digital camera series.

These cameras can shoot close up images at an insane rate of speed. They can take as many as a thousand 800×600 (SVGA) resolution photos every second. The lower the resolution is set, the more frames they can snap, topping out at 95,000 frames per second when dialed down to a 32×32 pixel resolution.

Now these cameras weren’t made for casual users. They’re desinged primarily for capturing and analyzing minute product defects in everything from automotive crash simulations to product durability drop tests.

Be sure to check out this cool video gallery of some high-speed shots from a variety of Phantom cameras.

    You should check out the Casio Exilim EX-F1:

    http://exilim.casio.com/browse_cameras/exilim_pro/EX-F1/

    It’s a moderately priced (street price appx. $999), self-contained digicam that can capture up to 300fps.

    I’m looking for a low cost digital camera with a framing rate of from 100-1000 per second and short exposure time. Application – imaging tennis strokes and ball strikes.
