Phantom Miro C210J

  • 1,800 fps at 1280 x 1024
  • 12 bit, 1.3 megapixel CMOS sensor
  • ISO Color 640D*, 640T*; Mono 2500D*, 5000T; Adjustable
  • Hi-G: 170G Shock, 24 Grms Vibration
  • Small: 73 mm x 79 mm x 82.5 mm (H x W x D)
  • Modular: Connect to Miro Junction Box for multi-camera configurations


The Phantom® Miro® C210J is a small, light and rugged digital high-speed camera, designed to meet the most demanding 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. It is modular, and designed to be connected to a Miro Junction Box to create multi-camera configurations as simple or as complex as needed.

Small, light & rugged: At 73 mm x 79 mm x 82.5 mm (Miro C210J) and weighing just over 1 lb. (.5 kg), the C210J is a 3-inch cube small enough to fit into the tightest places.  Strategically placed mounting holes securely position the camera, even in difficult places. The C210J was tested at 170 G (IAW MIL-STD-202G) for shock, and 24 Grms (IAW MIL-STD-202G) for vibration, and is rugged enough to withstand the most challenging environments.

Image protection: The C210J is specifically designed to protect valuable images if a cable is severed during an experiment.  He camera has local memory, including an internal, non-removable 128G CineFlash® for image storage. It can be set to save all images immediately to the non-volatile CineFlash. An internal battery provides back-up power to allow images to be saved in the event AC power is lost.  

Modular and flexible: The Miro C210J is designed to operate through a single cable to Vision Research’s new Miro Junction Box (JBox). The JBox is a flexible hub designed not only to operate the cameras but to create almost any multi-camera configuration imaginable. Each JBox can accept up to six cameras, or use any one of the camera ports to daisy chain or tree branch to another JBox, significantly increasing the number of cameras in a configuration. The Miro C210, as well as other Phantom Miro cameras, can also connect to the Miro JBox, offering users additional configuration flexibility.

Motion Analysis:  The Miro C210J 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.

Short Description
  • Small, light, and rugged, the Miro C210J meets the most difficult applications. It achieves 1,800 fps at full 1.3 Megapixel resolution of 1280 x 1024. With an internal battery and internal, non-removable CineFlash, important images are protected in the event AC power is interrupted or a cable is severed. The C210J is designed to operate with a Miro Junction Box, and can be modular: create multi-camera configurations as simple or complex as needed. Miro Junction Box specifications can be found in the Accessories section of the Vision Research web page.
