The Photron FASTCAM SA-X2 high-speed video camera provides an optimal combination of these critical parameters, with sufficient performance to capture high quality 12-bit megapixel images at up to 13,500 frames per second (fps).

Taking advantage of the very latest CMOS sensor technology, the FASTCAM SA-X2 utilizes large 20µm square pixels to capture more light than any other high-speed camera. It is rated to ISO 25,000 (against the accredited ISO 12232 Ssat measurement standard) for monochrome 12-bit cameras and ISO 10,000 for 36-bit color (Bayer system, single sensor) cameras. Higher light sensitivity means less additional lighting is required, or higher framing rates or faster shutter speeds can be used with existing lighting conditiors.

The FASTCAM SA-X2 is controlled remotely through Photron's FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software over a high-speed Gigabit Ethernet network, or locally via an optional handheld keypad. If a PC connection is available, then images can be downloaded via dual industry standard Gig-E ports.
