Measurement & Analysis Camera Systems (MACS), was founded by David Adermann and Anthea Dean in 1990 to service the High-Speed Camera Industry.

MACS started out by purchasing a Redlake high-speed imaging system providing service and consulting to customers. 

Your needs and requirements are of the upmost importance to us and unlike our competitors MACS continues to offer our knowledge and experience to all customers regardless of which camera manufacturer\'s equipment they own.

Our success in this industry is to provide optimal performance, solutions and support to our clientele which is driven by continually sourcing the best available equipment, we are not afraid to discard suppliers who fail to deliver both quality equipment and quality support.

MACS is proud to be the exclusive Australia and New Zealand Distributor for NAC, Fastec Imaging, P+S Technik, Shimadzu and HIVE Lighting. 


We provide leading equipment coupled with the ongoing support and technical advice from the start, ensuring customer satisfaction. We will train you on how to get the best out of your high-speed camera system. 

We at MACS guarantee that we will deliver over and above any competitor. MACS are unique in that we can offer complete Turnkey Solutions to meet your specific needs.

We look forward to providing you with the best tools for success today.
