    About The Sony ICX274 Interline CCD Chip

    The ICX274AL is a diagonal 8.923mm (Type 1/1.8) interline CCD solid-state image sensor with a square pixel
    array and 2.01M effective pixels. Progressive scan allows all pixels' signals to be output independently within
    approximately 1/15 second, and output is also possible using various addition and pulse elimination methods.

    This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time which makes it possible to realize
    full-frame still images without a mechanical shutter. Further, high sensitivity and low dark current are achieved
    through the adoption of Super HAD CCD technology.

    Applications: Still cameras which require high resolution, etc.)

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • Do you have a drawing or other reference to this camera's back focal distance from its T-thread flange to the detector? Thanks! Steve Peterson

      Lumenera Skynix cameras are all standard C-mount spacing (17.5mm back focus), so that if you add a zero-profile T to C adapter you could reach infinity focus with a C mount lens.

    • Will this work with a Celetron Avx?

      Yes, although you will have to rotate your DEC axis 90 degrees to mount the crossbar of the side by side plate, so the DEC marks will not line up while pointed at the North pole in this configuration.
