New Intensified sCMOS Camera Technology Improves High-Speed Analysis

Intensified sCMOS provides the technical solution when other imaging technology does not meet your application’s high-speed requirements, whether you need ultra-short exposure times or higher resolution, and an extinction ratio beyond what nonintensified CCD or CMOS cameras can achieve.

Are Large Image Sensors A Perfect Fit For Large Field-Of-View Microscope Applications?

Microscope manufacturers have increased their field of vision on the cameras connected to their microscopes to offer more information to their users. However, are larger image sensors a perfect fit for large field-of-view (FOV) microscope applications? This article explores the answer to this question and delves into the relationship between resolution, magnification, spectral range, and pixel size of image sensors.

Is It True That Cooled Cameras Are More Sensitive Than Noncooled Cameras?

The reduction of temperature through the “cooling” of image sensor components or electronic circuits can improve image quality and performance. This article examines the underlying effects of cooling in cameras and their sensitivities.

Standards Always Sound Impressive, But Is There Any Benefit For Me As An sCMOS Camera User?
EMVA1288, a standard for the specification and measurement of machine vision sensors and cameras, creates transparency by defining reliable and exact measurement procedures, as well as data presentation guidelines, and makes comparison of cameras and image sensors easier.
What Are All The Discussions About Global vs. Rolling Shutter?

The shutter in a camera system enables the control of the exposure time and thus the level of signal in an image. The shutter also defines the quality of an image if the objects are moving, as well as setting the environment for experiments, especially involving synchronization with illumination light.
