QHY268C APS-C Format 16bit CMOS Colour Camera


Out of Stock (Can be Backordered)

The QHY268C is a new generation of back-illuminated CMOS cameras with true 16-bit A/D and 3.76um pixels. This new Sony sensor is an ideal colour CMOS sensor exhibiting no amplifier glow. 16-bit A/D gives high resolution sampling of the whole full well range. Digitizing 0-65535 levels yields a smooth image with continuous gradation of greyscale levels.
