  • Description
  • Specifications

The ultra-high speed Photron SA-Z high speed camera provides mega pixel resolution to a blistering 21,000 frames per second (fps) from it’s very light sensitive (ISO 50,000) 20μm square pixels, with 12-bit pixel depth (ADC) delivering incredible image quality.  At full resolution recording, with full 128G memory, the camera can record for 4.26 seconds. The SAZ is available in 12-bit monochrome or 36-bit color versions with recording memory options from 8GB to 128GB. 

The Photron FASTCAM SA-Z high speed camera offers scientists, researchers and engineers the ability to capture high resolution digital images at ultra-high speeds to see and understand previously invisible processes and events. Using Photron's proprietary CMOS image sensor technology, FASTCAM SA-Z high speed camera combines high recording rates with outstanding light sensitivity and excellent image quality to provide the most versatile ultra-high speed digital camera available today.

The Fastcam SA-Z can operate at reduced resolution to over two million frames per second.

A global electronic shutter, 1μs standard, but capable of operating down as fast as 159 nanoseconds (export restrictions apply) ensures the 12-bit monochrome, 36-bit color images are crystal clear and blur free as you have come to expect from Photron high speed imaging products.
