New Handheld TS3 100 High-Speed Camera

Fastec Imaging, a leading global manufacturer of digital high-speed video cameras, has released the new revolutionary TS3 high-speed camera. For the first time there is a completely portable and handheld high-speed camera that takes hundreds of frames of second in high definition.

Fastec Imaging, a leading global manufacturer of digital high-speed video cameras has, once again, taken the high-speed imaging world by storm with the release of the revolutionary new TS3 100 handheld high-speed camera. This portable, affordable, battery operated camera puts all the power of a high end, high-speed camera, in the palm of your hand!

"We wanted to create a high-speed camera that was going to be easy to use, versatile and very portable, unlike many of the other cameras in this field," explains Steve Ferrell, President of Fastec Imaging. "The TS3 combines the power, speed, resolution and light sensitivity of our renowned HiSpec camera line with the portability and ease of use of our previous handheld 'point and shoot' high speed cameras. The result is a completely portable and intuitive high-speed camera with the ease of use of a DSLR."

The TS3 100 captures 500 frames per second (fps) at 1280 x 1024 pixels and over 20,000 fps at reduced resolutions, making it the perfect high-speed camera for broadcast, research and industrial applications. Featuring a built-in 7'' high resolution touchscreen LCD, the TS3 allows for instant playback of footage out in the field. Combine that with an industry leading 4 hour battery, and it is easy to see why the TS3 100 is quickly becoming so popular.

Unlike any other high speed camera on the market today, the TS3 100 offers unmatched versatility. Not only is it an intuitive point- and-shoot handheld camera, but it can also be controlled over Gigabit Ethernet via a PC or MAC, or even over the Internet using a standard web browser for long distance control. The TS3 also features both USB ports and SD ports allowing users to easily download images to thumb drives, SD cards, or portable hard drives. Additionally, an optional built-in SSD, (Solid State Drive), provides for up to 256GB of non-volatile internal storage. This allows for shooting all day long without having to download to a computer.

"The response to the TS3 has been overwhelming," says Ferrell. "Its ease of use and affordability makes the TS3 one of the most accessible high-speed video cameras on the market and a perfect solution for researchers and manufacturers as well as TV and film producers."
