MomentCMOS for Science


Capture the Moment with this ultra-compact, 7 Megapixel CMOS camera. This camera uses a true global shutter, freezing moving objects in time. With both data and power over a single USB3.2 Gen 2 cable, the Moment is optimized for easy integration, and capturing a 17.5 mm sensor diagonal at 50 frames per second, the Moment shows you exactly what’s happening.

  • 7 Megapixel
  • 50fps over USB3.2 Gen 2
  • Global Shutter
  • Low Noise
  • 73% QE

Key Features

Scientific Image Quality

The Moment delivers quantitative measurements and optimizes image quality by suppressing hot pixels and patterns common to industrial devices.

Combined with low dark noise and optimized linearity the Moment gives high quality images in low light situations.

Rolling Blue

Global Shutter Snapshot

Global shutter minimizes complexity of illumination control, simplifying your imaging setup. Collect all the light that comes your way without the dead time, artefacts and synchronization issues of a rolling shutter device.

Moment Dimensions

Ultra-compact Form Factor

Measuring just 50mm x 40mm x 42 mm, the Moment can fit into virtually any instrument. Over 3 times smaller than other sCMOS devices on the market, the Moment can fit easily into existing instruments, or minimize the footprint of your new device.

Speed and Simplicity

The Moment utilizes the simple, versatile and high-speed USB 3.2 Gen 2 – 10 GBit/s interface to deliver 50fps full frame. What’s more, both data and power are provided by the same cable, simplifying integration.

Design and Integrate

Interfacing and integration is simple with the Moment. With its compact design and single cable interface, hardware integration is straightforward. And with onboard triggering, combined with Windows and Linux support, communicating with a camera has never been easier.
