Advanced Test Equipment Corporation offers affordable high-speed camera rental rates for leading-edge products with powerful imaging capabilities. ATEC's rental inventory includes cameras with exposures of below .001 second and frame rates of thousands of frames per second. When choosing a high-speed camera rental, it is important to consider the shutter speed, light sensitivity, throughput, resolution, and varying frame rates. Industries that rely on high-speed cameras for imaging include the medical, manufacturing, aerospace, defense, and research and development industries. Advanced Test Equipment Corporation offers affordable high-speed camera rentals from top manufacturers such as Kron Tech, Vision Research, and Photron.
High-speed cameras work by running film over a rotating mirror or prism rather than a shutter, eliminating the process of stopping and starting the film. High-speed cameras are powerful devices that are capable of slow-motion capture technology. Operating like video cameras, high-speed cameras focus light from the visible spectrum onto an image sensor, which then turns the image into a recordable electronic medium. Modern cameras also feature circular buffers. A circular buffer is performed when the photographer wants to capture spontaneous events; a trigger is set, and until it activates, the camera records over itself. Once the trigger activates, the camera records. This process saves storage space in the camera and can ensure that the photographer gets the shot when dealing with highly unpredictable subjects.
A high-speed camera can film up to a quarter of a million frames per second, meaning a single second of movement can be expanded into over ten minutes of the film. Photographers can playback incredibly quick events, like the spray of ocean water off a jet ski or the flapping of a hummingbird’s wings, in slow motion with this technology. Slow-motion technology on high-speed cameras happens when the playback rate of an image clip is slower than a capture rate. Technical industries work with high-speed cameras to capture images that would not be able to be witnessed with the naked eye.
High-speed cameras are top tier imaging devices that produce spectacular visuals, not able to be witnessed with the naked eye, hence the hefty price tag if one is looking to purchase a high-speed camera. Shutter speed measures the time a camera shutter opens to expose the sensor to light and is crucial for applications in fields of ballistics or defense and military testing. High-speed cameras use global electronic shutters allowing pixels to start and finish light to charge functions in unison. Complex pixel designs free the pixel integration for the next frame and enable slow-motion features to work. Renting a high-speed camera with ATEC ensures premium equipment at an affordable, cost-friendly price.
