Cameras for DIC

LaVision is offering a wide range of cameras for strain and deformation analysis. Depending on your needs we offer high resolution and high frame rate cameras.


The Imager M-lite is a high sensitivity, high resolution digital USB 3 camera series, equipped with the new generation CMOS sensors with excellent image quality and low readout noise. Models are available with 2, 5, 9 and 12 million pixel resolution.


The Imager MX 4M camera has a 4 million pixel 12 bit sensor with excellent sensitivity characteristics and is able to work at frame rates up to 180 Hz at maximum resolution. With this extremely compact and cost effective solution it is also possible to use a reduced AOI and get up to 700 Hz with a 1 million pixel "letterbox" region; often ideal for the typical high aspect ratio specimens.


The Photron, Imager HS 4M and Phantom cameras are fully integrated within the software and feature CMOS sensors with frame rates of several kHz at highest spatial resolution. Like all other cameras LaVision's high-speed cameras are ready for use in time-resolved applications featuring very high strain rate testing such as impact or blast.
