Photron SA4 Fastcam

UPC takes delivery of a Photron SA4 Fastcam.   The latest large  pixel light sensor and very flexible software made the camera choice for us easy.   We recognise that slow motion photography enables detailed analysis of small mechanisms to be completed quickly and accurately.   The  analysis software providing automatic tracking of markers is much more powerful than can be first imagined.

We bought the higher spec SA4, not because we are likely to be in daily use of the 500,000 frames per second capability , but because the image quality is excellent.
