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 LAB 3a10 is an alternate 1 Mpx camera to our popular Miro 310 camera. It boasts a larger resolution at 1280 x 1280 and a smaller 10µm pixel. Many applications benefit from a smaller pixel size.

The Phantom Miro LAB3a10 is a 1.6 megapixel camera with 3.2 Gigapixels/second (Gpx/s) throughput. This translates to 1,850 frames-per-second (fps) at full 1280 x 1280 resolution. Frame rates up to 310,000 fps are available at reduced resolutions. The minimum digital exposure is 1µs and the camera is available in both color and monochrome versions. The Miro LAB3a10 uses microlenses on its custom-designed CMOS sensor to achieve great light sensitivity, and with 12-bit pixel depth you can expect excellent image quality.

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). CineFlash modules and the associated CineFlash Dock are optional accessories to the Miro LAB3a10.

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 Phantom Camera Control software. When using a C-mount we recommend the use of 4/3" lenses for full sensor coverage.

Miro 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!
