Does the camera use the Class 1 or Class 2 CCD chip? And how does the camera deal with moisture in the chamber? Argon-purged? Desiccant tube? Thank you.

Hi Anat.
From this page : http://www.atik-cameras.com/product/atik-16200-coming-soon/
The Atik 16200 comes with a class II sensor fitted as standard
The CCD is housed in a sealed, argon-purged chamber to create a dry, condensation free environment.

Hello Jo,

Looking at the spec. I see you have the following;
Dark Current: >0.25 electrons/second at 0C

Is this correct as other manufacturers using the same KAF 16200 have quoted a Dark Current: >0.1 electrons/second at 0C

Hope you can clear this up as I thought the Dark Current was always specific to the actual model of sensor being used?


Regards, Peter

Hello,

Yes dark current is specific to the model of the sensor.   We will firm our value up as we get a larger number though production.  But the figure is just due to the cooling and sensor.

Hi Rodolphe,

Thanks, I hope you did too!

They are on the production line as we speak so I'd expect to see them shipping to dealers very soon! Though in terms of actual availability, it might be best to check with the dealers themselves. We've had an unexpectedly large number of back orders, but we don't always know whether these are for their stock or to fulfil existing orders.

I hope that helps!
Jo

Thanks Jo
I haven't ordered mine as my usual dealers didn't have a date. May be I should pre-order to be sure to get one.

The camera shares the low read noise digitisation circuits of our 3 and 4 series cameras.  Download time is approx 16 seconds.

Steve

Will it be possible to select a lower (than normal) digitization speed to improve read noise?

There is, umm, another manufacturer who manages to get the read noise down to 6e- by lowering
the CCD read speed to 2MHz. Of course it depends also on AD and amplifiers.

That would be awesome.  I`m itching to buy this camera.
