MegaVision Announces E7 Camera Back

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 13 - MegaVision is pleased to announce the E7 digital camera back. Based on Kodak's 4-tap, 50 Megapixel KAF-50100 CCD, the E7 features sustained captures of 50 Mpixel images at about 1.2 seconds per frame via a Camera Link or Gigabit Ethernet interface to the host computer.

The E7 addresses aerial, cultural heritage, scientific, medical, industrial and other applications that demand rapid capture of high resolution and high dynamic range images.

The E7 is MegaVision's 50 Mpixel solution to uncompromising medium format digital image capture. With a full frame sensor that is twice the size of full frame 35mm format, the E7 provides image quality impossible to match with smaller format image captures. With an image area of 37mm X 49mm, the E7 can take advantage of the best technical camera lenses which typically have upwards to 70 mm focal-plane coverage. With a data rate of 44 mpixels/second, an uncompressed image is transferred from the E7 to a host computer at about 1.2 seconds. Live focus eliminates the need for a ground glass or a sliding back adapter on technical cameras. Binning enables both rapid-update live focus, as well as extreme low-light capture with reduced resolution.

The E7 is available in both color and monochrome. Adapters are available for a range of technical cameras and medium format camera bodies.

In a reprise of the first professional quality color image capture pioneered by MegaVision, the Monochrome E7 (E7-mono) may be coupled with MegaVision's USB color wheel or multi-spectral LED lighting for the ultimate in image quality and unrivaled color reproduction accuracy. For those who desire eliminating Bayer pattern compromises, MegaVision's monochrome option, whether used alone for B&W capture or together with a color wheel or LED lights for multi-shot color capture, offers the most demanding imagers compelling solutions simply not possible with conventional digital or film solutions.
