Vision Research Unveils 4MP 6,600fps Camera

Vision Research introduces the Phantom v2640, said to be the fastest 4MP camera available. It features a proprietary 4MP CMOS image sensor that delivers up to 26 Gpx/sec, while reaching 6,600fps at full 2048 x 1952 resolution, and 11,750fps at 1920 x 1080.

The v2640 features HDR of 64dB and the lowest noise floor of any Phantom camera (7.2 e-). It also has ISO of 16,000D for monochrome cameras and 3,200D for color cameras.

In designing this new, cutting-edge sensor, we focused on capturing the best image in addition to meeting the speed and sensitivity requirements of the market. The 4-Mpx design significantly increases the information contained in an image allowing researchers to better understand and quantify the phenomena they are observing,” says Jay Stepleton, VP and GM of Vision Research.

The v2640 has multiple operating modes for increased flexibility. Standard mode uses CDS for the clearest image, while high-speed (HS) mode provides 34% higher throughput to achieve 6,600 fps. Monochrome cameras can incorporate “binning,” which converts the v2640 into a 1-Mpx camera that can reach 25,030fps with very high sensitivity.

Key Specifications of the Phantom v2640:
  • 4MP sensor (2048 x 1952), 26Gpx/sec throughput
  • Dynamic range: 64 dB
  • Noise level: 7.2 e-
  • ISO measurement: 16,000D (Mono), 3,200D (Color)
  • 1 ┬Ás minimum exposure standard, 499ns / 142ns minimum exposure with export-controlled FAST option
  • 4 available modes: Standard, HS and Binning (in Standard and HS)
  • Standard modes feature CDS performed directly on the sensor to provide the lowest noise possible

  1. I stopped by their booth at PW to check out their cameras, they had a unit on display. I'm not in the field of fast cameras, so I'm not up on all the limits and specs, but unit seemed impressive. The pixel sizes are something like 13um or 26um, can't remember, far cry from mobile pitch, but makes sense. I think the sensors was something like 1 inch diagonal, or slightly more, maybe 1.3" diagonal.
