The Spyder3 Color camera is based on its monochrome counterpart. The camera incorporates the company’s dual-line scan architecture and pigment color filters. The first array contains red and blue pixels, while the second array contains green pixels only. The camera offers various data output options, including RGB, RG/BG or G only, to meet different requirements in a range of imaging applications. The two adjacent linear arrays have no spacing between them. This eliminates spatial artifacts and results in high color quality, particularly when capturing images of rotating or freefall objects. The camera’s capabilities include flat field correction, automatic white balance and pre-calibration with common light sources.
