The Photron FASTCAM SA2 has been engineered to provide the optimum speed and resolution required for detailed observation and analysis of high speed events occurring in large spatial areas or fields of view. The 10m pixels lend themselves perfectly to micro analysis applications such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) or Digital Image Correlation (DIC).

Areas where a high degree of motion analysis precision is demanded, such as automotive safety testing, weapons performance testing, fluid dynamics and solid mechanics will benefit from the combination of very high resolution, high framing rates, and typical Photron reliability.

The ability to operate at full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) at up to 2,000 fps will be a huge benefit to broadcast applications, including sports, nature documentaries, advertising and motion picture entertainment. The FASTCAM SA2 builds on Photrons Emmy award winning experience and is backed by the industry's best reputation for reliability and support.

As with every Photron high speed camera, ease of use and attention to details make the difference, with the FASTCAM SA2 supplied with the very easy to use Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software, or for those applications where a computer is not an option, an RS-422 optional keypad for camera control and image review.
