KAF-18000CE - Quality and speed|
The new KAF-18000CE image sensor leverages Kodak’s 9-micron pixel design and color technology for exceptional image quality, sensitivity, dynamic range, and color fidelity. With 18.6 million total pixels, the sensor provides an output resolution of 18 megapixels to capture images with exceptional clarity and detail. New to the Kodak KAF-18000CE is a dual-output architecture that enables faster sensor read-out times, allowing camera designers to achieve increased frame rates in their final camera designs. With this unique combination of image quality and speed, the KAF-18000CE provides manufacturers an image sensor that is ideal for landscape, fashion, or wedding photography.
