The Phantom v1840 has the lowest noise rating of any Phantom cameras at just 7.2e-.  It also boasts the highest dynamic range, 64 dB, of any Phantom camera that uses a global shutter. 

Flexibility is further enhanced by utilizing the binning mode (mono only) to reach speeds of up to 17,240 fps at 1024 x 976.  With the FAST* option operators can benefit from a 142ns minimum exposure. Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) in standard mode provides the cleanest images possible for images with dark regions. Likewise, Bright Field Mode increases the Full Well giving cleaner images to bright and very bright backgrounds.

Extreme imaging creates a lot of data that needs to be moved quickly and safely.  The v1840 is compatible with the Phantom CineMag IV and V media storage systems.
