The Phantom Miro N5 is perfect for destructive testing.  Built in two separate parts, the head and the base, it is built to capture every possible image it can when it counts. The low-cost head unit is easy to replace as CXP protocol immediately transfers the very last image possible to the sturdy base.

Since the large base is separate from the tiny camera head the 3 meters of cable is perfect for reaching small and hard-to-reach places. The N5 base is available in a standalone or Miro JBox 2.0 version, contains the 128GB non-removable CineFlash and battery.  Memory can be partitioned up to 63 times allowing continuous recording feature to record and download multiple shots making the Miro N5 perfect for machine trouble shooting.

The Miro N5 was designed to fit into small places, and a C-mount lens would be bigger than the whole camera! So to keep it as small as possible, we opted to use small S-mount lenses (also called M-12-mount lenses).

The CXP cable is included with and attached to the Miro N5 camera head.

A System cable is not included with the Miro N-Series, so you may need to purchase one if you do not have an extra. Every customer configuration is different, and we carry a variety of cable lengths to meet your needs.

The Phantom RCU is a legacy solution for Flex, Miro and v-Series models. The Bluetooth dongle that was designed for the RCU also works with the handheld PCU from AbelCine, which is also compatible with most modern Phantom cameras. The Bluetooth dongle is needed for wireless connectivity with the RCU or PCU and connects to Phantom cameras with a “Remote port” (v-Series, UHS and Flex cameras). Note that Miro and VEO camera models do not have a ‘Remote’ port directly on the camera body. However, VEO cameras can be connected using the CAMEO VEObob accessory.
There are two third-party solutions that Vision Research recommends highly because they work for ALL Phantom cameras over their Ethernet connection:

    • The Semote handheld remote controller includes a handheld unit and camera unit to transmit the signal. This device provides a connection up to approximately 30 meters.


  • The iPhantom app works on any Apple IOS device, and connects to any Phantom camera that has a WiFi router attached to the camera. This is particularly great for VEO S-model cameras (with firmware after version 106), because those cameras include a USB port for a USB WiFi dongle available from Vision Research.
