6.1mp Image Sensor

2758×2208 sensor

4.54µm pixel

8 position internal Filterwheel

The QSI 660ws-8 model camera employs a 6.1mp Sony CCD image sensor. This new generation of Sony sensors offers remarkable sensitivity with a peak QE of over 75%. The high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, dual read rates, low noise performance, and internal 8 position color filter wheels make the QSI 660 ideally suited to a broad range of demanding scientific, medical, astronomical, and industrial imaging applications.

The QSI 660ws-8 camera system is supported by industry-leading astronomy and microscopy image acquisition software plus a full camera control API is available for creating custom Windows or Linux applications.
