Designed for both on-board and off-board vehicle safety testing, the FASTCAM Mini CX camera delivers an exceptional combination of resolution, frame rate, light sensitivity and durability in a compact, standalone package.

With 1080 HD resolution at 1,000 frame per second and an industry leading light sensitivity of ISO 5,000 color and ISO 10,000 monochrome, the Mini CX provides outstanding image quality. Well suited for the space limited locations and High-G operating environments common to automotive safety testing as well as certain military/defense applications, the Mini CX is Photron’s smallest, lightest and – with operational testing to 150G – most rugged standalone camera.

Additional features add to the usability of the Mini CX. For instance, HDMI video output allows easy local focusing of the camera. An internal battery offers 30 minutes of camera operation if the primary power source fails during a test. Rapid download to nonvolatile memory ensures protection for recorded images. A built-in accelerometer provides a backup trigger source.
