Camera Sensor Format

Most sensors are rectangular with varying aspect ratios, or linear arrays of pixels. Some of the rectangles are well known industry standards (2/3",1/2", etc). Area scan cameras are the rectangular arrays of pixels, line scan cameras are a single line of pixels.

The Wizard will fit the largest side of your specified object to the largest side of your specified sensor. If your object's shorter side will not fit within the shorter side of the sensor, the Wizard will adjust the magnification until it does.

Select the format of your camera if it is one of the listed standards, or check "other" and fill in your sensor's dimensions, or line scan length in the box.
