Flir White Paper Series: How to Evaluate Camera Sensitivity

Comparing basic camera specifications such as frame rate, resolution and interface is easy. Comparing imaging performance of cameras such as quantum efficiency, temporal dark noise and saturation capacity is not. First we need to understand what these various measurements really mean. This white paper will address these questions and will explain how to compare and select cameras based on the imaging performance data following the EMVA1288 standard.
