Vision Research announced the new Phantom Mito eX-series point-and-shoot digital high-speed cameras. Three models are introduced, the Miro eX1, Miro eX2 and Miro eX4. Each of them is equipped with a custom-designed CMOS sensor.
The Miro eX1 and Miro eX2 gets a 640×480 sensor while the Miro eX4 has a 800×600 sensor. They offer a maximum, full-resolution frame rates of 500 frames-per-second (fps) to over 1,200 fps. The speed can reach 100,000fps if you reduce the resolution. The exposure time offered by the Miro eX camera can be as fast as two microseconds (1/500,000 second) and the custom-designed CMOS provides light sensitivity of ISO 4800 for monochrome and ISO 1200 for color.
The eX2 and eX4 include also a built-in triggering system allows users to program the Phantom Miro eX to automatically begin recording as soon as motion is detected within a specific point in the frame. All three handheld high-speed cameras have a 3.5-inch touchscreen display and up to 4GB of internal memory (1GB only on Miro eX1), as well as a CompactFlash card slot. These cameras are priced at less than $10,000.
