One of the greatest inventions in human history dates back to 1685 when Johann Zahn gave us the design of world’s the first camera. Cameras then and now have taken a complete paradigm shift in shape, sizes and variety. Technology has advanced so drastically that now we get cameras inbuilt with most of our smart electronic objects.
Technology has evolved and so as cameras. Engineers have mastered the skill of designing new cameras with every passing year. Now cameras are more compact, easy to use and loaded with tons of features.
The highspeed camera is a perfect definition of right engineering and modern science. They are a particular type of video cameras which are designed to capture events per minute. They have the unique ability to capture every minute detail in a ratio of 1000 frames per one second. High-speed cameras have made our research and scientific study much easier by allowing us to view every detail of our subject.
Some of the well-known features of a high-speed camera which make them different from stereotypes video cameras are.
This feature enables the high-speed cameras to capture a particular event whenever a signal pulse change gets detected. Sensitivity plays the key factor here. These types of cameras are mainly used for scientific research, wildlife photography, underwater photography and paranormal investigations. Unique Lens ability
Lens is the most critical component of any camera. A wide variety of design lenses is being used for different purpose. The usage of these lenses differs with the variety of events for which a high-speed camera is being used. Most commonly this camera uses the following lenses:
High-speed cameras have a special operation mode called auto-lens which enables the camera to detect the particular subject and adjust itself accordingly.
Automatic Gain Control
To gain control of the image to be captured AGC uses electronic circuitry to adjust video signals in a very unfavorable condition also, So mostly high-speed cameras AGC is automatically disabled to make sure there are not many interferences.
High-speed cameras have changed the whole concept of underwater photography with their unique feature which enables the video camera to work fine when submerged completely underwater. Optical Zooming is another amazing feature allows the device to focus closely on the particular subject by giving a perfect definition of the captured image.
