Combined with robust thermal housing designed to operate in extended temperature ranges and fluctuating lighting conditions, the new Prosilica GT Large Format cameras are ideal for high-definition imaging applications with demanding requirements of robustness and design-in flexibility. They provide a great option for high-quality imaging for anyone looking to switch over from existing CCD cameras to CMOS cameras with similar resolutions and optical formats.
- Extended temperature range (-20 deg. C to + 50 deg. C)
- NIR sensitivity up to 1100nm
- Modular concept providing various lens mounts (M58, M42, and EF-mount)
- Fixed Pattern noise correction, Defect Pixel Correction, and Trigger over Ethernet.

See full specification for the series below:
Prosilica GT4096, 4096 x 4096, 16MP
This is a great replacement for the KAI-16000 CCD sensors!
Now that you have a great high resolution camera, what lens works best?
High resolution cameras with the ON Semi Python sensors are great, but only as good as the lenses you use! It is imperative to have the sensor sizes matched with the lens formats. Additionally, we need to make sure the lens resolution is adequate for the image sensor pixel size.
To aid in the lens selection, we have the following recommendation on lens series. Recommendations as follows
Prosilica GT5120, 5120 x 5120, 25MP: This camera has a 32.58mm diagonal image sensor, so a F-mount lens is required. Two options are Kowa and Schneider
KOWA – F mount series
Schneider – F mount series
As a note, as the pixel size is 4.5um, this is not as demanding on the lens resolution and will only require 111 line pairs/mm (lp/mm) making these adequate selections.
