A Better Way.

We started this project for one simple reason: There are no low-cost high-speed video cameras that offer the video quality that researchers, scientists and professional photographers demand.

Since Mike first modified a low-cost strobe flash in 1975, he's been pursuing his passion for low-cost, high-speed photography. He's been frustrated by ridiculously expensive rentals (thousands of dollars per day) of medium quality, high-speed cameras that are bulky and complex to use. In 2011, we set out to solve these problems, and to date we've built and shipped over 200 edgertronic cameras to customers.

 

Project Background: 

edgertronic was first introduced as a Kickstarter project in September 2013. Funding was successfully raised and backers received their cameras in December 2013. Since then, we've been ramping up production and selling the edgertronic direct through this website. Customers have successfully used the edgertronic in scientific, research, industrial, educational and video production applications.

Revision A: The original hardware proof of concept and a software development platform. Design began in December 2011, using complete chip and board level simulation (no rework wires!). Revision A powered up in March 2012 and took the first demo video in May 2012. A great start!

Revision B: We repackaged Revision A into a more compact design. Improvements included thermal, image quality, and manufacturability. Good but still not perfect.

Revision C: Production version. Changes made the camera smaller, lighter, easier to manufacture, and more elegant. The last image quality issues were solved. Revision C successfully passed FCC Class B emissions testing, allowing the camera to legally be offered for sale. Along the way, we wrote code. A lot of code.
