Perfection at all levels: Sony’s IMX series

IMX30412.34 MP

Sensor properties Sony IMX304

  • 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 24 fps (USB 3.1 Gen 1) or 9 fps (GigE)
  • 8, 10 and 12 bits per pixel
  • Sequencer, binning, AOI
  • Long time exposure up to 30 seconds, shortest exposure time ~40 µs (IDS Software Suite)
  • Available in colour or monochrome version

With a massive 12.3 megapixels, the IMX304 is the cost-optimized, frame rate-reduced variant of the Sony IMX253 global shutter CMOS sensor, and performs every bit as well in terms of image quality: its high resolution and outstanding dynamic range are unequaled. It is used for preference in traffic surveillance and in medical or measuring technology. Industrial cameras from IDS are available optionally in the monochrome or color variant.
