Vision Research Introduces the Versatile Phantom Miro M320S Compact Digital High-Speed Camera

New Phantom Miro M320S Designed for a Variety of Applications From Scientific Research to Creative Media
WAYNE, N.J. (April 2, 2012) -- Vision Research, the leading manufacturer of digital high-speed imaging systems, presents the Phantom® Miro® M320S digital high-speed camera, which takes portable high-speed imaging to the next level by combining the lightweight, rugged design of Vision Research's latest Miro family with advanced features not found on any other camera in its class.

"Our new M320S follows Vision Research's Miro M-Series tradition in versatility by adapting to many imaging applications," comments Rick Robinson, Division VP Marketing, Vision Research. "With precise control over resolution, frame rate, exposure time, and trigger point, this camera is an ideal tool for everyone from scientists and engineers to professionals in TV production and new media applications. The advanced features and small, lightweight form factor make the Miro M320S the most accessible and adaptable Phantom high-speed digital camera available today."

The Miro M320S is capable of recording 1320 frames-per-second (fps) at its full resolution of 1920x1200; 1540fps at 1920x1080; 2250fps at 1152x1152; and higher frame rates at reduced resolutions. Leveraging the Academy Award®-winning camera technology of the Phantom Flex, the M320S offers exceptional light sensitivity and picture quality with 35mm depth of field thanks to the camera's 2-megapixel CMOS sensor. The Phantom Miro M320S has standard 12-bit pixel depth and can be configured with 3GB, 6GB or 12GB of internal RAM Memory.

M320S Workflow

Featuring a single HD-SDI output, the M320S can adapt to a wide range of monitors and HD field recorders for a video-based workflow. For maximum quality using uncompressed raw files, the M320S takes advantage of the new Phantom CineFlash Storage system, which ships standard with every M320S camera. The removable CineFlash drives offer up to 240 Gigabytes of non-volatile flash storage. Once full, quickly download the drives via a CineFlash Dock over eSata, and the resulting Cine Raw files are ready to be reviewed and processed with either Phantom software or a number of compatible third-party solutions. When used together with the Phantom Remote Control Unit (RCU), the Miro M320S becomes a fully portable high-speed camera system. In addition to controlling all recording parameters, the RCU's built in video monitor allows for live preview, framing, focus and full control of the HD-SDI playback. Users can trim the shot and quickly save it to the removable CineFlash drive, then start capturing the next shot right away.

Tutorials & Guides
The new Phantom Miro M320S high-speed camera from Vision Research records 12-bit raw cine files for advanced color correcting with professional imaging software such as GlueTools or DaVinci Resolve. However, many shooters are instead utilizing the camera's HD-SDI output to record directly to an external device like the Sound Devices PIX 240. This is a super fast way to get gorgeous high-speed shots recorded in Apple's ProRes codec for easy ingest into an editing system.
