High Speed Cameras

High-speed imaging is a tool that can help you understand the motion of subjects that move too fast for the human eye to see. It enables you to capture a sequence of images within a very small amount of time that you can play back at a slow rate of speed to understand what is happening with your subject.

Typical cameras only capture at 30 frames per second. Some high speed cameras can capture 4000 frames per second, or up to approximetely 50,000 frames per second at lower resolutions. Once they are played back at 30 frames per second, we see a detailed slow motion sequence.

Scitech offers some specialized high speed camera listed below.

We also offer lighting & even image intensifiers.
