Multi-Megapixel imaging has come down significantly in price in the last few months.
In comparison to previous multi-megapixel CCD image sensors, the price per pixel has been reduced by almost 50%!
This is being fueled by new CMOS image sensors from ON-Semiconductor and Sony and are now debuting in several camera lines.
Additionally, Crowley has reduced the price on the 71MP USB3 camera making it extremely affordable for many applications. With a resolution of 10,000 x 7,096 @ 3 frames per second, this camera is excellent for applications ranging from aerial surveillance to industrial machine vision applications.
The new CMOS image sensors bring exceptional sensitivity, lower noise, increased speeds and best of all, lower prices!
These multi-megapixel (high resolution) sensors are available in 12, 16, 25 and 71 megapixel resolutions with their specifications below along.
