FASTCAM NOVA Series

FASTCAM NOVA R3-4K/R5-4K (NEW)

The FASTCAM NOVA R3-4K and R5-4K bring together unique CMOS image sensor technologies and extensive high-speed digital imaging expertise to provide a camera with the flexibility to be used in a wide variety of applications.

Available in two performance level models – FASTCAM NOVA R3-4K and R5-4K – the cameras deliver 12-bit image recording rates up to 750fps and 1,250fps respectively at 4K image resolution and 800fps and 1,440fps respectively at UHD image resolution, with shutter speeds to 2µs. Recording rates to 200,000fps are available at reduced image resolutions for the FASTCAM NOVA R5-4K.

Overview

Standard features of the FASTCAM NOVA R3-4K and R5-4K cameras include an internal mechanical shutter to allow remote system calibration, a high-performance 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface for camera control and high-speed image download, memory segmentation that allows recording into one memory partition while downloading from another, and compatibility with a number of industry standard lens formats to allow the use of Nikon G-Type, C-mount and Cannon EF lenses.

The FASTCAM NOVA R3-4K and R5-4K cameras also feature a sealed body design that prevents dust and corrosive particles from contaminating sensitive electronics. An optional FAST Drive SSD can be used for the download of images at up to 1GB per second.

Intuitive and feature rich Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software is included with each FASTCAM NOVA camera. Also included is a Photron Device Control SDK that allows integration of the camera with user-specific software, and libraries for controlling the camera within a MATLAB® or LabView environment.
