EMVA 1288 Tested and Compared - Updated

Today, we have more choice than ever when it comes to machine vision camera sensors and models. By using EMVA 1288 information, you can better understand and compare the quality of images cameras output, from signal noise to how well they might perform in low light. 

To help you find the sensor and camera for your needs, Teledyne FLIR's Camera Sensor Review ranks models by their performance for:

  • Quantum efficiency
  • Temporal Dark Noise
  • Absolute Sensitivity Threshold
  • Signal to Nose Ratio (Read Noise)
  • Saturation Capacity
  • Dynamic Range

The 2022 Sensor Review also provides explanations to help you choose the right sensor type including differences in optical format, readout, and pixel structure. It explains different sensor technology from global vs. rolling shutter to back illuminated and on-sensor polarization options.

Coming This Summer: 2022 Sensor Periodic Table

Never memorize sensor names again!

With so many new sensors each year, and often with non-descriptive model names, it can be tricky to keep track of them all. This handy chart organizes machine vision sensors from classic CCDs to the latest CMOS technology by resolution and speed. (see 2021 version)
