"It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen."


Two Mini UX camera models provide 1.3-megapixel (1280  x 1024 pixels) image resolution with frame rates up to 2,000fps from the Mini UX50 and 4,000fps from the mini UX100. Both models are available with recording memory options up to 32GB providing extended recording times and triggering flexibility.

Using innovative proprietary CMOS image sensor technology, the FASTCAM Mini UX achieves high light sensitivity from a small image sensor (10um pixel pitch) through the utilization of microlenses to increase effective Fill Factor. At maximum image resolution the image sensor is fully compatible with readily available 1-ince C-mount lenses offering a wide choice of small, lightweight, rugged and high aperture objective lenses.

The FASTCAM Mini UX features a rugged design suitable for operation in high shock and vibration environments and a compact camera body (120mmx 120mm x 93mm) weighing just 1.5g. This small and rugged camera design makes the FASTCAM Mini US ideally suited to on-board and off-board automotive safety testing and many other applications where a compact size and compatibility with standard optical systems is required.

Standard operational features of the FASTCAM Mini UX include a Gigabit Ethernet Interface for reliable system control with high-speed data transfer to PC, and the ability to remotely switch off cooling fans to eliminate vibrations when recording at high magnifications.
