About the Opticstar DS-142M

The Opticstar DS-142M ICE Peltier Cooled Camera with fan-assist is a native 1.4 mega-pixel 16-bit color CCD imager with a large and very sensitive Sony SuperHAD Chip of 1/2" diagonal (ICX205AK). The DS-142C ICE uses the all new Z-MAX high-speed platform which adds a host of desirable features to this high quality camera.

Unlike other cameras in its class, gain support, noise reduction and black level are all implemented in the camera hardware and applied to the signal prior to the data been sent to the PC, thus ensuring the highest quality signal and brightest image possible at maximum speeds of 2.5fps @ 1434x1050 in uncompressed RAW format.
