Understanding CCD Camera Resolution and Dynamic Range


It is often assumed that a camera with higher resolution and higher dynamic range yields better image quality. Why then do cameras with virtually identical specifications perform so differently? The way specifications relate make undersanding device performance more complex than simple definitions suggest. In this article, you'll learn the keys for evaluating CCD cameras—such as resolution, dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and pixel size—that will allow you to determine true functional system performance.
