    Instead of looking for the traditional camera
    accessories, companies like Canon, Nikon, etc,
    should consider better quality CCDs as options
    to the cheap CCD/CMOS chips they use in base
    cameras. CCDs that provide better image quality,
    more accurate colour, no hot pixels or fewer, etc.
    In light of that, here is the CCD I suggest they
    adopt:

    The device you refer to is shy of 2 Mpix ... that won't fly these days, further
    it is quite small at 13.4 x 9.5 mm ... aimed at the P&S market, I suppose.

    CMOS has ready advantages including low heat buildup during exposure.

    The text refers to an 11 mp sensor, the KAI-11000CM, but the sidebar is for
    the KAI-2001, which is the 1.9mp you mention. I wonder what the actual
    dimensions of the 11000 are?

    Oopps. Sorry, I fell into the sloppy page construction there! Kodak proving
    they are assholes again... show one sensor, spec another one and no way to see
    the spec of the 11000M. Guess it's a teaser.

    Cheers,

    One camera it's used in is made by a company called, SBIG. It's a
    digital camera aimed at the astronomical market. The first "serious"
    colour astro camera since most astronomical shots are done in black
    and white with three filters and combined to form a true colour
    image. Colour fidelity on consumer cameras is too inaccurate for good
    astronomical work but they seem to think this
    chip is a good one for one-shot colour.

    Good point. Negligeable loss of res. Possibly better performance. Although
    from what I read the SLR/c and /n are doing quite well (performance wise) v. the
    original 14/n. You still need to put on the A-A and microlenses to get the real
    performance.
