Low-Light Imaging at High Frame Rates
Hamamatsu Presents New ORCA-Flash2.8 Scientific CMOS Camera
Hamamatsu introduces with its new ORCA-Flash2.8 a high-sensitivity digital camera based on a unique 2.8 M pixel next-generation Scientific CMOS image sensor. Designed for low-light imaging at high frame rates, this new camera combines high resolution with high sensitivity, high speed and low noise.
Combined with ease of interface with external peripheral equipment, the camera suits for a wide variety of applications such as life-science microscopy, industrial imaging and sensitive analytical measurement.
45 frames / second are output in full resolution, making it ideal for fast, low-intensity imaging. The ORCA Flash2.8 can achieve a maximum speed of 1,273 frames / second in sub-array mode. The cooled FL-280 sensor's design keeps readout noise minimal at 3 electrons, even with very fast readout speeds. The camera's 12-bit output interfaces with a PC via a standard CameraLink base framegrabber.
As part of their long-term development program, Hamamatsu's ORCA Flash2.8 cameras are now being delivered to customers. By combining the benefits of next-generation Scientific CMOS sensors with the qualities of the industry-leading ORCA range, Hamamatsu are now able to offer customers the ability to capture images with a good price / performance level.
