  • The SBIG STF-4070M Monochrome CCD Camera sports a 4.2 mp KAI-04070 interline transfer sensor with a 2048 x 2048 array at 7.4 microns square.
  • KAI-04070 sensor features broad dynamic range, superb imaging efficiency, and a flexible readout design.
  • The SBIG STF-4070M Monochrome CCD Camera makes short exposure times and high frame rates possible due to its electronic shutter.
  • Full frame, high resolution 16-bit images with low noise download in only 1/4 second.


SBIG STF-4070M Monochrome CCD Camera

The SBIG STF-4070M Camera sports a KAI-04070 4 mp CCD sensor in a 4/3" optical format. Built upon a cutting-edge 7.4 micron Interline Transfer CCD, this sensor features broad dynamic range, superb imaging efficiency, and a flexible readout design.

The STF-4070 has been enhanced to provide fast full frame downloads and peak cooling in a compact package the size of an STF. It only takes about 1/4 second to download a high resolution 4 mp 16-bit frame using the dual channel readout mode. Despite this ultra fast download rate, the read noise remains especially low at about 9e-.

The STF-4070 was designed chiefly for the OEM market, specifically for microscopy operations where short exposures and high frame rates that can be achieved by an electronic shutter are more beneficial over having a mechanical shutter for automatic dark frames. As a result, the SBIG STF-4070 cooling design is very powerful with the capability of a cooling delta higher than -50 degrees C.
