FLIR (formerly Point Grey) has released a new version of its industrial camera selector tool that incorporates EMVA 1288 specifications to compare quantum efficiency, dynamic range, temporal dark noise (read noise), and more.
The tool was first released a few years back as a PDF set of charts that sorted cameras based on EMVA 1288 performance specifications, and the company has decided to make it interactive by adding these specifications to its camera selector chart. Selectable columns in the tool include sensor name, type, and format, as well as interface, resolution, frame rate, chroma, readout method, quantum efficiency, dynamic range, pixel size, and more.
This interactive tool provides quite a bit of information on some of the latest image sensors from Sony, ON Semiconductor, Teledyne e2v, Kodak, and CMOSIS. More than 50 image sensors, including CCD and CMOS models, are included in the tool. So even for people who may not use FLIR cameras, the tool is helpful if only to compare image sensors and their specifications and performance.
