Among the trends in machine vision cameras, one of the most noteworthy is the growing emphasis on small, modestly priced cameras. While plenty of vision systems need so-called higher-end capabilities — such as very high resolution, multispectral capture, prism-based color imaging, high-speed line scan, and other premium features — by far, the highest volumes of machine vision cameras being sold are those that are small in size and small, or smallish, in price. This demand results in a wide array of compact, affordable cameras being created by many different manufacturers. While these cameras all share many common traits — such as sensor sizes, resolutions, interfaces, and basic operational feature sets — some key differences exist across different brands of small cameras that can factor heavily into the plans of vision system designers, depending on the types of systems they are creating. Prayagi quickly reviews applications that are driving this trend and covers key innovative features and differences that are trending within the small-camera community.
