Camera Delivers Images At 18 Gpixels/s

Vision Research introduces the Phantom v1840, the latest addition to the Phantom ultrahigh-speed camera family. The v1840 provides the same image quality at 18 Gpixels/s as the Phantom v2640. Reportedly, the v1840 offers the lowest noise floor of any Phantom camera and has a high 64-dB dynamic range and 4-Mpixel 2,048 x 1,952 resolution.


The camera relies a custom CMOS 4-megapixel sensor to capture 12-bit images at a speed of 4,510 fps at full resolution and 8,570 fps at 1920 x 1080. It comes equipped with five operating modes. These include standard mode; high-speed (HS) mode, with 34-percent more throughput; binning in both standard and HS mode for higher sensitivity and frame rates; and now Bright Field (BF) mode for bright or shot-noise limited, backgrounds. In Bright Field mode, the Full Well is significantly larger, increasing the maximum attainable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
