Cameras, lenses, controllers, switchers, and other related equipment for image capturing and processing.
Board cameras, a.k.a. PCB cameras, are video cameras with image sensors mounted directly onto circuit boards. These devices are favored for their flexibility and comprehensiveness with a small footprint. These cameras are prominent in mobile devices and CCTV security systems.
Camera control units (CCUs) are used to remotely control operations such as zoom, panning, focus, and aperture.
Camera filters provide a range of optical filtering effects in scientific, research, and industrial applications.
Camera lenses and video lenses attach to video cameras for use in machine vision, quality monitoring, security, and remote monitoring for industrial and commercial operations. This search form does not cover consumer video camera lenses.
Camera repair services refurbish digital or film-based cameras / video cameras to their original operating condition.
CCD (couple-charged device) cameras are a type of image capture device that utilize an image sensor to register visible light as a recordable electronic signal to visually archive captured stills and video. Of the three types of digital cameras (the others being CMOS and CID), CCD cameras are the most developed and commonly used.
CID (charge injection devices) cameras are a type of video camera employing image sensors that retain registered visible light until the sensor's pixels are ground, or ‘injected', into a substrate. This makes them functionally different than other more common digital cameras. CID cameras mainly find service in industrial and scientific applications.
Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) cameras use image sensors that operate at lower voltages than charged coupled devices (CCDs), reducing power consumption for portable applications. Each CMOS active pixel sensor cell has its own buffer amplifier, and can be addressed and read individually.
Digital Cameras are cameras that take still photographs, and sometimes have limited video capabilities, by recording images on an electronic image sensor.
Film Cameras use photographic film, usually a plastic coated with a light-sensitive emulsion, that when exposed to light, forms a latent image. A chemical process called film developing is later applied to the film to produce visible images..
Filter wheels hold and position multiple filters for various imaging applications such as machine vision and spectrophotometry.
High speed cameras are video cameras manufactured with an emphasis on extreme frame rates. This allows for the slow-motion analysis of fleeting details and motion that would not be observable with a standard video camera. These cameras find their most meaningful use in scientific and industrial settings.
Low light cameras are a type of video camera with extreme photon sensitivity, and are excellent for recording in situations where only ambient levels of light are available. Common deployments include overnight surveillance and remote machine monitoring.
Smart cameras are stand-alone camera systems that contain an image sensor, integrated processor, and communication interface. They can be programmed for machine vision, security, and other imaging applications.
Thermal imagers detect heat patterns in the infrared wavelength (1 micron to 100 micron) spectrum.
UV cameras are video cameras that record images in ultraviolet radiation by the use of a UV-pass filter, a quartz lens, a CCD image sensor, and specialty illumination techniques.
Video cameras record live-action scenes that are available for viewing via a stored or transmitted video feed. This allows the user to create a permanent and detailed chronicle of events. Video cameras record dozens of pictures (or frames) a second that when viewed in succession, clearly distinguish the translation of an object or person over time.
