The Phantom T1340 is a compact and powerful four megapixel imaging tool.  A variety of features increase the workflow flexibility and maximum connectivity of the camera allowing it to interface with advanced systems found in research and industrial testing.  

  • 3,270 at 2048 x 1952
  • Exposure Index:
    • Mono 16,000 - 80,000 D
    • Color 4,000 - 20,000 D
  • 36, 72, or 144GB RAM
  • 10Gb Ethernet Option

The Phantom T1340 is the next evolution in high-speed, high resolution imaging.  This new platform is part of a generation of cameras that deliver greater throughput, premium features, and enhanced performance in a small and compact housing. 

The custom 4 Mpx sensor operates with 13 Gpx/second image throughput. The premium imaging specifications are ideal for motion analysis applications that require data precision such as high-speed digital imaging correlation (DIC), particle image velocimetry (PIV), and stress and strain analysis. 

Advanced Phantom features enable a variety of applications by allowing for customized camera settings.  Features such as:

  • Quiet mode to eliminate vibration for microscopy and 3D measurement techniques
  • Remote, standalone operation using the On-camera controls, video monitor and CineMag enables outdoor applications
  • CineMag supports direct recording for long duration events
Different situations can often require different types of lenses.  The Phantom T1340 has interchangeable lens mounts (Nikon, PL, C, M42 and Canon EF with Electronic control) which enables the use of high quality and specialized optics without limitation. The camera mount can be customized for the particular test as needed.

Yes, the battery or backup power source must be able to output in the 20-28V range and supply at least 8 Amps. The camera consumes a maximum 150W with CineMag. 

The camera ships with an XLR3 cable extension for power, which can be used with several 24V battery sources, including power stations and power vault style solutions that combine 2 or more 14.4V batteries.
Phantom CineMag is a high-speed solid-state storage module and differs significantly from a traditional hard drive or solid-state disk in that there is no file system. PCC software is required to download Cine Raw files, which can be controlled through an Ethernet connection with the camera body or by using a dedicated CineStation IV. 

For high-speed recording, you must record to the camera’s RAM buffer first, review, and then transfer to the CineMag—this is known as ‘Loop’ mode. For lower speed recording, the camera can run in ‘Run/Stop’ mode, writing direct to the CineMag and allowing several minutes of recording. Once the file is recorded to the CineMag, the images are secure and can be deleted out of RAM to start another capture. 

The recordings are best reviewed using video playback on the camera body. It is not possible to delete individual clips from a CineMag. Once the CineMag is full, you can only re-record on it by deleting its entire contents. For this reason, it is recommended that RAM Cines are reviewed and trimmed by setting in and out points prior to transfer from the RAM buffer to the CineMag.

Visit our CineMag Page for more information.
Most Phantom cameras come with a fixed amount of high-speed dynamic RAM. When the camera is in the pre-trigger mode (you've pressed "Capture" in the user interface), the camera is continuously recording images into that memory. When it gets to the end of memory, it cycles back to the beginning and continues recording, constantly overwriting itself – until the camera is triggered. This behavior is called "circular buffer recording".

What you end up actually saving in memory is a function of how you've set up your trigger. It can be set so that only frames that occur after the trigger are saved (100% post trigger). In this mode, once the trigger is pressed any images already in memory are overwritten and you record until memory is full, then it stops. If you set the trigger to stop the recording (0% post trigger) and save all frames up to the time of the trigger, the camera will simply stop recording upon the trigger and all the frames in memory before the trigger will be saved. Finally, you can set the trigger anywhere in the middle, for example having 90% of the recorded movie be what happens prior to the trigger and 10% after the trigger.
We test the ISO of every Phantom camera model to the industry standard ISO 12232. We use the SAT method which we believe is the best method for determining a sensor's sensitivity. The SAT method does not use gain to boost sensitivity. When using gain to increase sensitivity, you also boost the noise level. A gain adjustment to boost sensitivity is available on all Phantom cameras using image processing tools, if increased noise can be tolerated.

Per the spec, we will often publish both a Daylight (D) and a Tungsten (T) value because the source of illumination has a significant bearing on the result, particularly with monochrome sensors. When T or D is not specified, it can be assumed that the value published is the Daylight variant.

Please note that most modern Phantom cameras include Exposure Index control, which will boost the apparent ISO through the use of pre-defined tone curves that get applied to the raw images. The exposure index (EI) range is specified by Vision Research per camera model to ensure optimal image quality throughout the range.
We offer hands-on training for Phantom cameras at our Wayne, New Jersey facility. The two-day class has both lecture and labs for the best learning experience. This class is targeted at applications where the cameras will be used for scientific and engineering applications.
On-site training is available.

For customers outside of North America, who prefer local training, most of our International Sales Partners offer training courses tailored to your needs.

If your application is TV or Motion Picture production, consider training courses targeted at those applications from AbelCine, or other Phantom resellers around the world who focus on the "entertainment" market.
