The data presented in this PDF might vary depending on your camera firmware and system setup. While we strive to keep this data current,
camera model firmware updates might change data results which might not make it into this PDF. Please download our Camera Family
Imaging Performance PDFs for the most up to date results.
Please note that all measurements are taken based on guidelines in the EMVA 1288 standard. Camera settings are at maximum exposure
time and bit depth unless otherwise noted. The pixel format is Mono 16 for mono cameras except for the last two Bandwidth and Throughput graphs which are done at Mono 8. Results are captured at room temperature (20°C). For more information on the EMVA 1288 standard
please visit EMVA.org. Thanks for considering Point Grey and please enjoy our mono camera sensor review.

*Mode 7 (Low Noise Imaging Mode)
MONO SINGLE LENS CAMERAS
Quantum efficiency (%) at 525 nm (higher is better)
Quantum efficiency (QE) is the ability of the sensor to turn photons into electrons, or in other words, turn incoming light into
an electrical signal for imaging. A higher QE % means greater sensitivity for detecting light. A sensor with a measurement of 79%
means that for every 100 photons that hit the sensor an average of 79 will be detected. Please note that the results below are
taken at the wavelength of 525nm.

Dynamic range describes the camera model’s ability to detect the maximum and minimum of light intensities (shadows and highlights).
Models with higher dynamic range can detect more detail in the darks and lights.

Temporal Dark Noise / READ NOISE e- (LOWER is better)
Temporal dark noise (also known as read noise) comes from energy within the sensor and the surrounding sensor electronics. Over
time, random electrons are created that fall into the sensor wells and are detected and turned into signal. Models with lower read noise
measurements produce cleaner images.

Saturation Capacity (Well Depth) e- (higher is better, sorted by pixel size)
The saturation capacity (well depth) is the largest charge a pixel can hold before over-saturation occurs and signal degradation begins.
Saturation must be avoided because it diminishes the quantitative ability of the sensor and in the case of CCDs produces image smearing due to a phenomenon known as blooming.

camera throughput (mb/s) and % of interface bandwidth
When considering multi-camera setups bandwidth considerations are a must. We calculated the maximum throughput (MB/s) by multiplying the maximum resolution by the maximum frame rate (note: to simplify these calculations an image data format of Mono8 was used). In
addition we added the percentage of interface bandwidth which the camera model pumped out. For those calculations we used 400 MB/s
for USB 3.0, 100 MB/s for GigE, 80 MB/s for FireWire 800, and 40 MB/s for both FireWire 400 and USB 2.0.
