Olympus i-Speed 2 high speed camera

Olympus i-Speed 2 is a compact, mobile, autonomous colour camera suitable for recording very fast and short-period, transitional and/or stochastic processes. Available accessories are: image digitalizer, laptop and other equipment for video recording, processing and analysing. The camera is widely applicable in research, equipment design, parts/components and material testing. 


  • maximum image resolution 800 × 600 at frame rate 1000 fps
  • resolution up to 5 μm/pixel with inspection area 4 × 3 mm if a microscope objective applied
  • maximum frame rate 33,000 fps at resolution 96 × 72
  • Ethernet cable PC connectivity
  • manual or electronic (TTL 5V) trigger in recording
  • possibility to store an analogue signal of up to 4 channels in addition to video
  • IDT LED lamp (130 W) for supplemental scene illumination
  • set of lenses and filters enhance the recording quality


Typical applications

  • primary information on flow features in fluid dynamics prior to application of optical measuring methods
  • suitable also as the main experimental method for studying fluid flow fields
  • air flow visualization in research related to room heating, ventilation and air-conditioning
  • observation of air/gas discharge from air terminal devices and pipes, nozzle discharge, two-phase flow
  • assessment of indoor environment of vehicles
  • studies of flow around bodies, mixing of gas jets
  • crash tests, fast motion tracking of objects, testing of firearms/ammunition/explosives
  • research into biomechanics and biological processes
  • evaluation of trajectories of machine mechanisms, robotic production lines, high-speed machining etc.
  • research into combustion processes
