Hand-held Point-and-Shoot 4000fps High Speed Camera
The Mega Speed HHC-X8 Pro portable all-in-one high speed camera from Canadian Mega Speed Corporation sets new standards of ease of use and performance in a portable, battery-operated package. The HHC X brings point-and-shoot photography to the high-speed imaging world.
The HHC-X8 Pro employs a new 4/3" sensor design to achieve a staggering 4000fps at the full 1Mpixel resolution with a much improved light sensitivity, all in the a hand-held package.
Like all Megaspeed HHC cameras, the X8 Pro camera is operated by a menu-driven touch screen, which is also used for slow-motion playback of the recorded videos. The video can be saved on a removable built-in solid state disk for sharing or archive.
The HHC-X8 Pro can operate in two modes:
In High-speed mode, video is recorded to camera RAM for playback on the built-in display. In this mode, the camera can record at its full speed for 4 seconds. The data can subsequently be stored on the SSD or on removable flash storage.
In Streaming mode, video is recorded directly to the SSD for up to hours of recording time. The high-speed SSD disk allows streaming full resolution video at up to around 300 fps.
Battery-operated, stand alone operation
The camera operates stand-alone on internal battery without PC for true portable operation without the need for external lighting or external power. The video data is stored on a removable, high-speed SSD like the ones in your laptop. For long recording sessions, simply replace the SSD with a spare and continue recording without waiting for download to PC. The SSD can be read through your USB3 port with a standard SATA to USB3 adapter.
