digital cctv cameras

Discussion in 'Video Cameras' started by John Mckenzie, Jul 21, 2003.

  1. I am thinking of installing a cctv pvr card in my computer and wonder if
    anyone can point of the pros and cons of different types of external
    cameras. I am at a loss to find out the difference between 1/3 ccd and 1/4
    ccd cameras and would like some advice in general regarding what to buy.

    A 1/3 inch CCD should, for an equivalent spatial resolution, be more
    sensitive (ie less noise at lower light levels) than a 1/4 inch CCD.
    Larger sensor = larger pixels = more photons per frame/field.
    Dearer though, and possibly more expensive lenses.

    Just my tuppence worth

    Remove my PANTS to repl.
