Sony XCD-V50CR -  IEEE1394/Firewire B 800(Mbps) Progressive Scan Raw Color Camera

Right on the heels of the XCD-V50 monochrome 1394.b camera, comes Sony's first COLOR IEEE 1394.b digital camera with fast frame rates and 14-bit output. Sony's new XCD-V50CR COLOR digital camera incorporates a 1/3 type progressive scan CCD with square pixels that produces high-quality VGA (640 x 480) images transferred through its high-performance IEEE 1394.b compliant interface. This ultra-compact camera supports cable lengths up to 100 meters and has the ability to daisy-chain multiple cameras on a single run. Plus the XCD-V50CR features two screw cable connectors for a more robust performance compared to standard cables. And best of all, the XCD-V50CR is backward compatible allowing images to be transferred to conventional 1394 compliant cameras via IIDC 1.31 support (i.e., 1394 drivers, cables and adapters).

With a variety of convenient features such as an external trigger input for the capture of fast moving objects or still images in low-light environments, and selectable video modes, the XCD-V50CR is ideal for image processing and analysis as well as printed circuit board, bar code and bottle inspection applications.
