The Miro R-Series is also designed for high frame-rate image capture, such as for automotive crash tests, high-speed sleds and explosives research. As with the other Miro models, the R-Series has an external rechargeable battery (BP-U30 only) and the popular CineFlash non-volatile data storage system. A 60GB CineFlash module comes standard with the Miro LC 120. The camera also includes flexible tools for both qualitative and quantitative analysis and is Phantom RCU compatible.

In addition to the R-Series, Vision Research offers two other two body styles in the Phantom Miro family: the M-Series and LC-Series. The M-Series is for applications where computer control is preferred, such as static installations in laboratories or test facilities where high-speed video is immediately saved to a computer for viewing and analysis. The LC-Series has an integrated flip-out LCD touchscreen for on-camera control and viewing recorded video. It’s targeted for a variety of camera applications, including shoots requiring portability.
