Hi, I need a camera that can output high resolution (8MP +), large sensor (4/3" +) and high colour depth (12-bit +) images. The first two requirements are easy to find. The colour depth is challenging. Which manufacturers have easy 12-bit acquisition? Ideally outputting a 16-bit PNG or TIFF? I don't want to debayer, but I can do colour calibration, gamma etc. Any help is highly appreciated!


Good day to you,

I am not sure if you are looking for CCD or CMOS sensor, but if CCD would be feasible choice then you can check XIMEA's CCD models with USB 3.0 interface. One of them is 9 Mpix (16 mm diagonal) based on Sony ICX814 and can output 14 bit: Scientific Grade, CCD with USB 3.0 - MD091CU-SY. Hope this helps. If not let me know and I can suggest maybe CMOS option.

Hello, I am looking for way to photo id different anode blocks. In identifying the blocks, I also need a way to Quality control the anode blocks (detect them for cracking, discoloration, and spalling). I am not very well versed in this field so any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Dear Greg,

This might be really a question for system integrator company since you are talking about project, but maybe you can assess what is needed from the camera side.

The question is mainly in your requirements for the camera like: Resolution, Speed (Frames per second), color/mono, CCD or CMOS, Operational system, interface, target price, Libraries you use etc.

Regards, Ivan Klimkovic

I want to mount a camera in my car and record the view as I am racing to be viewed and analyzed later. What are some of the best options without spending a fortune?


Dear Jo Barr,

What kind of camera would you require ? I am asking since there are plenty of consumer cameras that record, but you can also use an industrial camera.

The question is mainly in your requirements for the camera like: Resolution, Speed (Frames per second), color/mono, CCD or CMOS, Operational system, interface, target price, Libraries you use etc.

Anyone know where I can get the best marketing information based on applications?


Dear Michael Nguyen,

What kind of marketing information would you be interested in? It's not very clear from the Category and Question, especially since your company supplies vision and imaging technology yourselves.

Regards, Ivan

Hello Vision Experts, I am looking for a very professional System Integrator for visual inspection of integrated circuits. Which System Integrator in the US do you recommend? Thank you in advance.

I am looking for a vision inspection system that could be mounted outdoors (on bridges for example) looking at the surface of a flowing water body to measure invasive plant fragments that are flowing by the camera. The measurement does not have to be absolute quantity, but some relative measurement of the "flux" of fragments in the frame. This is for use in measuring the effects of invasive plants infestations flowing from streams into lake water bodies. Do you have any recommendations for a vision inspection system?


Dear Mike Willey,

The overall application idea is clear, but could you maybe try to also specify certain parameters like:

Resolution, Speed (Frames per second), color/mono, CCD or CMOS, Operational system, interface, target price, volume, Libraries you use etc.

I need help finding the right camera. I'm after something weather-proof (able to last) and able to do videos well. Nothing under 20 megapixels and lots of storage. No price range. Suggestions?


Dear may,

Maybe you can check our PCI Express or Thunderbolt cameras:
