Phantom C-Series Cameras

Phantom Miro C210

  • 1800 fps at 1280 x 1024
  • 12 bit, 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor
  • ISO: Color 640D*, 640T*; Mono 2500D*, 5000T; adjustable
  • Versatile, compatible with all Miro cables
  • 128GB internal CineFlash® standard
  • Small: 73 mm x 73 mm x 82.5mm (H x W x D)

The Phantom® Miro® C210 is a small, light and versatile digital high-speed camera, perfect for many applications. It has a 12 bit ½-inch CMOS sensor and achieves up to 1,800 frames per second (fps) at full resolution of 1280 x 1024. The Miro C210 has all the features to be a ready companion in any analytical environment.

Small & flexible: At 73 mm x 73 mm x 82.5 mm and weighing just over 1 lb. (.5 kg), the C210 is 3-inch cube small enough to fit into the tightest places.  Strategically placed mounting holes make it easy to position, even in difficult and hard to reach places. Its small size, pixel format, and C-Mount make it ideal for Microscopy applications. The Miro C210 is compatible with all Miro cables.

Ideal for microscopy: With its 1/2” image sensor, and dense, small pixels, the C210 captures critical details, and is a great camera solution to pair with a microscope.

Lots of memory: The C210 is available in either 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and comes with an internal, non-removable 128GB CineFlash.  The RAM can be separated in up to 63 partitions for back-to-back multi-cine recording.  Save 8GB of data into the CineFlash in less than 1.5 minutes, increasing camera up-time.  If the experiment disconnects the AC power, the C210 comes equipped with a battery to protect the data until it is saved to non-volatile Flash. 

Motion Analysis:  The Miro C210 benefits from Vision Research Phantom Camera Control (PCC) software, including the motion analysis tools in the software.  PCC can perform timing, position, distance, velocity, angle and angular speed measurements and provide a full suite of calculations on the data.

Rugged: The C210 can connect to a Miro Junction Box, and was tested at 170 G (IAW MIL-STD-202G) for shock, and 24 Grms (IAW MIL-STD-202G) for vibration.
