Sony DFW-X710 Color IEEE1394 Firewire  Camera

The new DFW-X710 color digital camera offers a dramatic leap forward in frame rates and imaging functions. The DFW-X710 employs a new, next generation Progressive Scan CCD with square pixels and offer excellent sensitivity. The DFW-X710 features a 1/3" CCD that delivers uncompressed, high-resolution, digital color images and features an easy-to-use asynchronous electronic shutter function with an exposure range from 1/100,000 to 17.5 seconds, allowing for the clear capture of fast moving objects or still images in low light environments. This new IEEE-1394 camera is ideal for quality-critical imaging applications such as semiconductor inspection, machine vision and factory automation.
