DOWNLOAD DATASHEET

The unique imaging features of the VEO 1310 are more accessible in the VEO 1010 model.  A native daylight sensitivity of ISO 25,000 (mono) is combined with low noise of 10 electrons to provide exceptional image quality even in darker environments, requiring less supplemental light. Binning mode is included for a boost in frame rate and ISO at lower resolutions. 

The custom 1.2 Mpx sensor provides more resolution than most 1Mpx high-speed cameras, resulting in a greater active pixel area to capture side-to-side and vertical movement. The VEO 1010 captures over 8,000 fps at full resolution, over 30,000 fps at 640 x 480, a range of frame rates ideal for impact analysis and other areas of industrial motion analysis. 

Interchangeable lens mounts increase flexibility – Nikon F, PL, C and Canon EF (with electronic control) mounts are available. This allows the camera to adapt to high quality and advanced optics that are often required to get the best data of the subject at hand. 

All Phantom VEO cameras utilize the same base housing, milled out of aluminum with sealed components to ensure the camera will continue to perform in harsh outdoor and range environments. As a result, VEO cameras are known for their reliability.

Phantom VEO CAMEO Handle and Cheeeseplate

VEO CAMEO Handle and Cheeseplate

This is a cine-style handle for the Phantom VEO camera.  It is part of Abel Cine's CAMEO series which includes custom designed accessories for the Phantom VEO.

The handle is part of a kit that also includes a CAMEO Cheeseplate (required) and hardware.
Battery mount for Phantom VEO

Battery mount for VEO

12V Battery mount for Phantom VEO S-Model cameras.  Mounts to the side of camera using a cheese plate (included) and connects to Capture port on back of camera.  Compatible with common 12-14.4V batteries.  Available as V-Lock (pictured) and as Anton Bauer Gold mount.

Note: These are ONLY compatible with VEO S-model cameras (not VEO-L) 
Pickle Switch, 6' (2m) Cable

Pickle Switch, 6' (2m) Cable

Pickle Switch. Connect to the Trigger port on camera or Capture cable, breakout box or Mini-BOB for manually triggering a camera with the press of a button.
All VEO S-models, and VEO4K-PL model, include a secondary 12V battery input, which is accessed through the camera's capture port. VEO S-models consume maximum of 70 watts of power and VEO4K S and PL models consume closer to 75 watts of power per hour.

Vision Research offers 2 battery mounts including a V-Lock and an AB Gold mount which mount to the side of the camera and connect to the capture port. Vision Research also offers a short 12V XLR-4 pin cable for use with different battery mount solutions (including rail mount) with this part # VRI-CBL-VEO-S-12VBATT-0R2

Note: VEO L-models are not compatible with 12V batteries.

Alternatively, all VEO models are compatible with 24V batteries such as VCLX can be used with the XLR-3 battery cable that now comes with all VEO cameras (it is part of the power supply), and also available with this part # VRI-CBL-VEO-BATT-2
The Miro-JB-2 does support up to 4 VEO S-model cameras at a time. All 4 cameras can be powered and controlled together when connected to the Miro-JB-2. A programmable power supply is required to power up the Miro-JB-2 when used with VEOs.

Note: VEO L-model cameras are not compatible with the Miro-JB-2

VEO cameras are not compatible with earlier version of Junction boxes due to the camera’s power requirements.

While the Miro-JB-2 simplifies the connection, VEO cameras can also be synchronized using F-Sync and/or IRIG, and connected to PCC using a Gigabit Ethernet switch.
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.
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.
The Phantom RCU is a legacy solution for Flex, Miro and v-Series models. The Bluetooth dongle that was designed for the RCU also works with the handheld PCU from AbelCine, which is also compatible with most modern Phantom cameras. The Bluetooth dongle is needed for wireless connectivity with the RCU or PCU and connects to Phantom cameras with a “Remote port” (v-Series, UHS and Flex cameras). Note that Miro and VEO camera models do not have a ‘Remote’ port directly on the camera body. However, VEO cameras can be connected using the CAMEO VEObob accessory.
There are two third-party solutions that Vision Research recommends highly because they work for ALL Phantom cameras over their Ethernet connection:
  • The Semote handheld remote controller includes a handheld unit and camera unit to transmit the signal. This device provides a connection up to approximately 30 meters.

  • The iPhantom app works on any Apple IOS device, and connects to any Phantom camera that has a WiFi router attached to the camera. This is particularly great for VEO S-model cameras (with firmware after version 106), because those cameras include a USB port for a USB WiFi dongle available from Vision Research.

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.
