IMX25312.34 MP

Sensor properties Sony IMX253

  • 1.1” area sensor with 3.45 µm pixel size
  • Global shutter 2nd generation pixel CMOS sensor from Sony's Pregius series
  • 12.3 megapixels (4104 x 3006 px) with aspect ratio 4:3
  • Full resolution at up to 36 fps (USB 3.1 Gen 1)
  • 8, 10 and 12 bits per pixel
  • Sequencer, binning, overlap trigger
  • Long time exposure up to 30 seconds, shortest exposure time ~40 µs (IDS Software Suite)
  • Available in colour or monochrome version

A great sensor! Pin sharp, clear, noiseless images with frame rates of 36 fps at full resolution (4104 x 3006 pixels) in our USB 3.1 Gen 1 uEye SE series. In combination with IDS industrial cameras, the IMX253 satisfies the highest specifications in terms of resolution, sensitivity and frame rates, and is therefore ideally suited for use in classical Machine Vision applications and traffic surveillance tasks in which fast-moving objects must be detected, or also in microscopy, which calls for a particularly high level of sensitivity.

Extremely low dark noise, e.g. for biosciences
