        Introducing the third generation of Phantom Miro cameras. Small, lightweight, rugged and packed with advanced features. The most accessible high-speed cameras available today, Miro cameras are ideal for a huge variety of applications that require moderate frame rates at common resolutions.

        The Miro 310 performance level is available in four body styles. The new LAB-Series is ideal for indoor, laboratory environments. The R-Series is a rugged camera for harsher environments. The LC-Series has a flip-out LCD touchscreen interface for camera control and cine playback.

        The Phantom Miro 310 is a 1 megapixel camera with 3.2 Gigapixels/second (Gpx/s) throughput. This translates to over 3,200 frames-per-second (fps) at full 1280 x 800 resolution. Frame rates up to 650,000 fps are available at reduced resolution. The minimum digital exposure is 1µs and is available in both color and monochrome versions.

        Each Miro camera is compatible with Vision Research's new and unique CineFlash storage technology. These removable, non-volatile storage devices slide into the camera body and provide a way to quickly save shots from the camera's memory without the need for time-consuming and costly downloads. Later, remove the CineFlash module from the camera and insert it into the docking station connected to a computer. Cines stored on the CineFlash are now immediately available on the computer. You can also transfer the cines from the camera to your computer and edit the images using our Phantom Camera Control software (PCC). When ordering your camera,  just specify if you want 120GB or 240GB CineFlash storage. A 120GB CineFlash and Dock come with every R or LC camera purchase!

        The R and LC Series come with a battery that can power the camera when AC power is not available or is lost during an experiment.

        Each Miro camera supports four lens mounts: Nikon F/G, C, PL or EOS. EOS mounts allow the use of Canon EF and EF-S automated lenses. Adjust lens aperture and focus remotely using our Remote Control Unit or Phantom Camera Control software.

        These cameras also have a number of other advanced features including an internal capping shutter, Image-Based Auto-Trigger, camera synchronization, immediate playback of recorded cines, and more!

        What's in the Box...

          Note: The high speed movies are all taken with this camera. They have been greatly reduced in resolution and compressed in size so we can show them to you on the web. Movie quality directly from the camera is superior to what you will see here.
