Apogee Alta F Series CCD Cameras
The Alta® F Series represents the next step in the evolution of the Alta line of cameras with faster readout speeds. The Alta line continues to support a wide variety of front-illuminated, back-illuminated and interline transfer CCDs. All Alta systems are backed by a 2 year warranty on the camera and lifetime warranty on the CCD chamber integrity. Current U Series customers can easily upgrade their systems to F Series.
Apogee Alta F9000 D07 Monochrome CCD Camera
The Apogee Alta F9000 represents the next step in the evolution of the Alta line of cameras with faster readout speeds. The Alta F9000 uses a very large format 9-megapixel full frame sensor with anti-blooming gates, ideal for applications requiring large field of view, such as astrophotography, sky surveys and radiology.

About the Kodak KAF-09000 Sensor...
The excellent uniformity of the KAF-09000 image sensor improves overall image integrity by simplifying image corrections, while integrated anti-blooming protection prevents image bleed from over-exposure in bright areas of the image. To simplify device integration, the KAF-09000 image sensor uses the same pin-out and package as the KAF-16801 image sensor.
Combining high resolution with outstanding sensitivity, the Kodak KAF-09000 image sensor has been specifically designed to meet the needs of next-generation low cost digital radiography and scientific imaging systems. The high sensitivity available from 12-micron square pixels combine with a low noise architecture to allow system designers to improve overall image quality, or to relax system tolerances to achieve lower cost.
