The Phantom TMX 5010 provides extreme frame rates utilizing our newest technology, the back side illuminated high-speed sensor. This is one of our most versatile, full featured cameras making it ideal for a wide variety of applications.
The Phantom TMX 5010 is our entry level TMX back side illuminated (BSI) camera. This model utilizes the same high-speed sensor as other TMX models but is ideal for laboratory and application settings where 50Gpx/second throughput offers significant application flexibility and other powerful features such as enhanced sensitivity, memory capabilities, and a larger resolution at high frame rates can take research to the next level. Universities and other education institutions will benefit highly from the versatility of the TMX 5010.
BSI technology provides increased sensitivity allowing experiments to use lower exposure times and less supplemental lighting. Phantom operators can reach 95 ns minimum exposure with the FAST option, eliminating motion blur. The FAST option feature also allows the TMX 5010 to reach high end speeds of up to 1.16M FPS at reduced resolutions. Even at very high frame rates, BSI technology maintains processing throughput at nearly 50Gpx/sec, meaning that researchers have access to larger resolutions at higher frame rates than they ever had before. The internal RAM is capable of providing up to 511 partitions for fast action events that require high-speed data management and workflow.

The Phantom TMX 5010 1-Mpx camera acheives over 50,000 fps at full 1-Mpx resolution and has all of the features of the TMX family. The TMX 5010 uses the industry's first high-speed back side illuminated (BSI) sensor, reaches 95ns with FAST option and can be upgraded to a 6410 or 7510.
400W Power Supply with 3-pin XLR to 3-pin Fischer Power cable for TMX Cameras
The Phantom TMX Series are the first high-speed cameras to use back side illuminated (BSI) sensor technology. Other high-speed cameras use Front Side Illuminated (FSI) sensor technology. In BSI sensors, the photodiode is closer in the sensor architecture to the light source, while the metal circuitry of the sensor is behind the photodiode.
This architecture provides two main benefits. The first is improved light sensitivity and Quantum Efficiency because the photodiode is closer to light source and not impeded by metal circuitry. The second is maintained throughput as frame rates increase, because the metal behind the photodiode can be redesigned for higher efficiency. Simply said, as frame rates increase, the BSI technology in TMX can offer much larger resolutions than available in cameras with FSI technology.
The TMX Series have a single RJ45 Ethernet port that is auto-negotiating to either a Gb Ethernet or a 10Gb Ethernet interface. This capability is a standard feature. When optimized, the 10GB Ethernet interface allows for cine downloads at speeds more than 5X faster than the standard Gb Ethernet interface.
While any compatible 10GBASE-T interface card installed in a PC should work, we have been using and recommending the Intel X540-T1 and X540-T2 cards. Be sure the latest Intel drivers are installed, and the appropriate network address is assigned to it (For example, IP 172.16.0.1 and Subnet 255.255.0.0) Also, ensure either the Phantom 10G Network driver is installed.
The RJ45 port on TMX has a locking mechanism. It works with standard Ethernet cables, or, for a more secure connection, Vision Research provides a ruggedized CAT 6A Ethernet cable with the mating locking component on one end.
A CAT6 or CAT7 cable is recommended and gives you a maximum 100m distance between the camera and the interface card. (A CAT6 cable is limited to 50m.)
Yes. In fact, there is a viewfinder port (VF) on the camera that will supply video and power to a viewfinder or monitor. Many standard monitors may be used. The TMX cameras have 2 BNC ports that provide HD-SDI.
All TMX digital cameras come with a 400W power supply, providing ample power for a camera with maximum 512GB memory, a CineMag, and the viewfinder.
Yes. You need to order the optional Canon EOS lens mount and use it with one of the tested and supported lenses (see FAQ). The part number is: VRI-MNT-TMX-EOS.
