Cables / Cable Assemblies / Connectors Questions

Question Asked:

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.

Try Teledyne Optech, the MS-1920 maybe? http://www.teledyneoptech.com/index.php/product/cs-ms1920/ I haven't worked with these cameras since before the company was owned by Teledyne (several mfgs back in fact) and not sure if it has the 12 bits/pixel you need but give it a shot.
