1/3 type progressive scan CCD with square pixels
8-bit (Mono8) or 14-bit (Mono16) output
High frame rate of up to 60 fps
External trigger input, Fast hardware or software asynchronous trigger

Right on the heels of the XCD-V50 monochrome 1394.b camera, comes Sony's first COLOR IEEE 1394.b digital camera with fast frame rates and 14-bit output. Sony's new XCD-V50CR COLOR digital camera incorporates a 1/3 type progressive scan CCD with square pixels that produces high-quality VGA (640 x 480) images transferred through its high-performance IEEE 1394.b compliant interface. This ultra-compact camera supports cable lengths up to 100 meters and has the ability to daisy-chain multiple cameras on a single run. Plus the XCD-V50CR features two screw cable connectors for a more robust performance compared to standard cables. And best of all, the XCD-V50CR is backward compatible allowing images to be transferred to conventional 1394 compliant cameras via IIDC 1.31 support (i.e., 1394 drivers, cables and adapters). With a variety of convenient features such as an external trigger input for the capture of fast moving objects or still images in low-light environments, and selectable video modes, the XCD-V50CR is ideal for image processing and analysis as well as printed circuit board, bar code and bottle inspection applications.

Note to IE Users: If camera files are opening as text in your browser, you can cause them to instead download with an option to save as a file by associating .icd files in Windows to open in a program like Notepad. This will save you from having to copy text in the browser and manually create and save the file. Here are instructions to do this:
  • create a text file on your desktop and rename it to have the .icd extension (you may be alerted about the file type - just click Yes to continue)
  • right-click on your new file, select Open, and choose the option to "Select from a list of programs"
  • choose Notepad from the list of programs, select the option to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file", and open the file
  • Windows will now associate that file type with Notepad, and clicking Camera File links will download and save as desired
