The Phantom v1610 camera is a powerful new addition to the PhantomR v-Series family of digital high-speed cameras. Designed with versatility and flexibility at the forefront, it is an excellent tool for researchers, scientists and engineers who need to capture high-resolution images at ultra-high speeds.

With our proprietary widescreen CMOS sensor, the v1610 can acquire and save up to 16 gigapixels-per-second of data. That means at its full megapixel resolution of 1280 x 800, you can achieve 16,000 frames-per-second (fps). At reduced resolutions, the v1610 offers frame rates of 650,000 fps. Further underscoring its versatility, the camera can be ordered with our unique FAST option (export controlled), which enables frame rates up to 1,000,000 fps.

The custom-designed sensor has 28 micron pixels, ensuring superb light-sensitivity -- essential in ultra-high-speed imaging. Standard 12-bit depth per pixel yields high dynamic range and provides excellent image quality.

The v1610 has common signal connections conveniently located on its back panel. Connections include timecode, dual power inputs, HD-SDI, a GPS input, frame synchronization, and trigger. The two HD-SDI ports can be configured in several ways. They can act as identical 4:2:2 HD-SDI ports where one port can be set up to provide an (optional) on-screen display for monitoring the on-camera controls and camera operation. They can also be configured as a single 4:4:4 Dual-Link HD-SDI port.

The v1610 can be equipped with 24GB, 48GB or 96GB of high-speed memory. You can also minimize cine save times with our Phantom CineMag feature that comes standard on the v1610. This feature lets you save any shot from high-speed RAM to a Cinemag in seconds. The camera comes in color and monochrome versions.
