Nightfall-HR Camera

The new Nightfall-HR camera from Photonic Science provides an ideal solution for 24-hour imaging in all conditions, from starlight to full daylight.

The camera uses a state-of-the-art back illuminated sCMOS sensor with 0.5 electron readout noise. Unprecedented low light imaging, rivaling that of intensified solutions, is achieved through the coupling of thermoelectric cooling and Photonic Science’s powerful image processing.

The 9.4 megapixel format provides the high resolution required for long distance surveillance, with capabilities to digitally zoom into features of interest.
