How many pixels do you need?

What resolution camera you should use depends on your application. Consider the following;

  • What is my field of view?
  • What is the smallest object or defect I am trying to detect?
  • Do I want to measure or just detect or count objects?

Many customers automatically assume they need megapixel resolution as this is a growing trend. In truth, megapixel is not always necessary which is why the VGA and PAL resolution industrial cameras listed here are still extremely popular.
