Bringing you the ability to swap and upgrade sensors as and when you're ready to do so.
When we crowdfunded early research and development of the AXIOM Beta we ran polls asking the community what sensor they would like to see being used for these purposes. Approximately 90% voted for the ams Sensor Belgium CMV12000. This is a very competitive, high performance sensor that comes in three pin compatible flavours: Color, Monochrome and NIR (Near Infrared enhanced Monochrome). The camera will incorporate other sensors e.g. development around the CMV2000 is nearly complete, but the following information will focus on the CMV12000.

Please note that the AXIOM Beta hardware/software currently cannot utilize the full framerate of the CMV12000.
