720HD High-Speed Cameras

Below you shall find a useful survey of current technology in terms of high-speed 720HD cameras from various manufacturers.  The list is compiled of the fastest camera capable of at least 1280x720 from each notable manufacturer.

The fastest 720HD high-speed camera is the NAC Memrecam ACS which shoots 45,000fps at 1280x720.
 The fastest cameras may not be the best choices.  Many variables have to be considered such as record duration, bit depth, file type, file size, save time, light sensitivity, exposure, and overall image quality.

*Photron cameras are typically designed with 1MP, square 1:1 aspect ratio image sensors (1024x1024).  The comparison of 16:9 aspect ratio capabilities such as 1280x720 do not fairly represent the performance of Photron cameras of which Photron is one of the industry leaders in terms of speed and quality.
