The Phantom v2640 is part of the Ultrahigh-Speed Series of cameras and has unparalleled image quality with a full 4 Mpx sensor for exceptional detail. The v2640 is the fastest 4 Mpx camera available and is the most sensitive camera in its class.
The Phantom v2640 has the lowest noise rating of any Phantom cameras at just 7.2e-. It also boasts the highest dynamic range, 64 dB, of any Phantom camera that uses a global shutter. Binning mode reaches speeds of up to 25,030 fps at 1024 x 976 and the FAST* option allows operators to reach a 142ns minimum exposure.
Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) in standard mode provides the cleanest images possible for images with dark regions. Likewise, Bright Field Mode increases the Full Well giving cleaner images to bright and very bright backgrounds.
The v2640 is compatible with the Phantom CineMag IV and V media storage systems and has 10Gb Ethernet as a standard inclusion. Both tools aid in manipulating, storing, and transferring the large amounts of data that come with extreme imaging.
*The FAST option is export controlled. To learn more go to www.phantomhighspeed.com/news/whoweare/export

Every Phantom v2640 and v1840 Color camera includes Standard Mode, High Speed (HS) Mode, and High Speed Bright Field Mode. Monochrome cameras also include Binning in both Standard and HS Modes.
“Bright Field” is a specially engineered mode where we increased the Full Well of the pixel to create a much larger full well than the other mode. A larger Full Well gives a higher Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). This gives a much cleaner image in applications with a very bright background, like a sky in daylight, or LEDs backlighting an experiment. We applied Bright Field the High Speed Mode, so the frame rates are the same.
FAST option allows the v2640 and v1840 to achieve a minimum exposure as low as 142ns. It is a feature that is Export Controlled, and therefore not automatically included. It is an option that can be added.
In Phantom Camera Control (PCC) software, go to Camera Settings, near the top of the menu. Select the mode you want from the dropdown menu, and follow the dialog boxes. No need to reboot the camera or restart PCC. If you have Cines in RAM, we make you either save them or delete them before mode switching.
Of course you can. You can also upgrade for more memory, up to 288GB, and even add CineMag compatibility.
