Compact, flexible frame rate
solution for production and digital media applications
This camera family combines the benefits of high-speed imaging
with the resolution, speed and workflow possibilities of professional
HD camera systems. AVailable in three models, M320S, the rugged R320S
and the full-featured LC320S which includes a flip-out LCD touch screen
for on-camera monitoring and controls.
Small, lightweight but rugged, the Phantom Miro M/R/LC320S high-speed
camera has advanced features previously only available in more-costly
cameras. Easy to learn and to use, the camera includes HD-SDI
for advanced monitoring and workflow possibilities and addresses applications
in a wide variety of industries - the R-Series body style adding a rugged,
high-g rated camera to the Miro family.
The 2-megapixel camera with 3.2 Gigapixels/second (Gpx/s) throughput produces
1380 fps at 1920 x 1200, or over 1500 fps at 1920 x 1080 and uses micro
lenses on its custom-designed CMOS sensor with 10 µm pixel pitch
to achieve great light sensitivity. The combination of all its features,
together with 12-bit pixel depth, produce excellent image quality. All
cameras are delivered with a rechargeable battery and a CineFlash system.
When used together with the Phantom RCU (see below), the camera can be
mounted remotely and all recording remains conveniently self-contained.
The Miro LC-series supports four lens mounts: F-, C-, PL- or EOS. EOS
mounts and allows the use of Canon EF and EF-S automated lenses. Adjust
lens aperture and focus either on-camera, or remotely using a Remote Control
Unit or Phantom Camera Control software.
Workflow and storage
• Record directly to up to 12 GB of internal memory and preview
immediately by playing back over HD-SDI or Gb Ethernet.
• Save the shot by editing and transferring to the Phantom CineFlash
• Record the HD-SDI playback to a separate device
• Re-arm the camera ready for the next shot
Remote Control Unit
The Miro LC-Series camera is compatible with Vision Research’s
unique CineFlash storage technology.
These removable, non-volatile storage devices slide into the camera
body save raw cine files quickly from the camera's memory without
the need for time-consuming and costly downloads.
The CineFlash module can be removed and inserted into the docking
station connected to a computer making the cines immediately available
on the computer. The cines can also be transferred from the camera
to a computer and the images can be edited using the Phantom Camera
Control software. 120GB CineFlash and dock are standard; 240GB optional.
small, lightweight, touch-screen,hand-held device controls the Phantom
digital high-speed camera as well as a providing a video monitor all
in one package.
The RCU supports the entire high-speed imaging
workflow. Set up the camera, trigger the shot, view the cine on
the LCD screen, trim to the frames of interest, and save the result
to a CineMag without ever touching the camera
The Phantom Break-Out Box allows any v-Series camera to connect
to our Remote Control Unit. And, if you have a Phantom HD or Phantom
65 camera, the RCU can connect directly into your camera's remote
port. The optional industrial Bluetooth connectivity gives you the
freedom to control the camera wirelessly.
The Miro M/R/LC320S has application
in two areas of industry:
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 see what
the human eye can't see. Applications ranging from animal studies
to PIV to product characterization are now possible using this accessible
Cinematographers and media artists now have access to a camera based
on the Academy Award winning technology of the Phantom
Flex for TV and new media applications.
