As the most technologically advanced generation of CMOS cameras to date, the modular LF series represents the next step in our evolution.

The LF series feature up to a large format 61-megapixel sensor with a maximum image depth of 16 bits. As a result, the high full well depth and low noise allow the LF the ability to bin and take advantage of the large pixels and speeds produced. The LF series also has very low read noise, meaning that they can capture images with very low levels of digitisation noise, even in low light conditions.

Extremely efficient cooling (-20°C @ ambient 20°C) and the absence of amp glow make it possible to create very long exposures. A wide range of complex applications can be handled using the LF series, including microscopy, spectroscopy, PCB screening, flat panel screening, colourimetry, neutron imaging, luminescence, and astrophotography.

It is possible to customize these cameras to meet your specific requirements. Find out how the LF series can be incorporated into your next project by contacting our sales team.

Key Features

Large format sensor

The LF Series can handle sensor sizes with up to a 43mm diagonal (full frame) whilst still maintaining adequately sized pixels of 3.76 μm. There are options with 26MP (APS-C) and 9MP (1” sensor) sensors to achieve maximum field of view.

No Amp Glow

The LF series does not suffer from amp glow, due to the use of the most recent generation of Sony IMX sensors. This technology allows the readout electronics on the sensor to be turned off or quietened. Although amp glow can be ‘calibrated’ or have dark subtracted out, at long exposures there is still residual noise. This has a detrimental effect on the achievable dynamic range of the cameras. Atik was founded on the premise that starting with a clean sensor is always preferable.
