Hamamatsu has introduced the new Orca-Flash2.8, a high sensitivity digital camera based on a next-generation scientific CMOS image sensor. Designed for low-light imaging at high frame rates, this new camera combines high resolution, high sensitivity, high speed and low noise, with a price/performance level that is unmatched.

As part of its long-term development programme, Hamamatsu's Orca Flash2.8 cameras are now being delivered to customers incorporating a 2.8M pixel scientific CMOS sensor.

A combination of high speed, low noise and ease of interface with external peripheral equipment makes it suitable for a wide variety of applications such as life-science microscopy, industrial imaging and sensitive analytical measurement.

45fps are output in full resolution, making it ideal for fast, low-intensity imaging. The Orca Flash2.8 can achieve a maximum speed of 1,273fps in sub-array mode. The cooled FL-280 sensor's design keeps readout noise minimal at 3 electrons, even with very fast readout speeds. The camera's 12-bit output interfaces with a PC via a standard Camera Link base framegrabber.
