Building on extensive experience in developing custom high-performance
cameras, software and vision systems, Quest Innovations has developed
the Condor-1000 series of multispectral cameras.
These cameras accommodate configurations of up to five CCD or
CMOS image sensors from 1/4-inch to 2/3-inch or larger on precision
color separation prisms with
subpixel alignment accuracy
Condor -1000 Multispectral Cameras
Multispectral cameras can be built in many ways but the
technique offering the most variety in sensor size and type, the
most flexibility in selection of spectral bands and in
accommodation of high-speed acquisition is prism-based spectral
separation. See prism
Quest offers cameras with prisms of two to five channels with
various images sensors and several common digital video
cameras can include fixed or selectable bandwidth filters or
even motorized filter wheels.
Standard Camera Models
Quest builds the Condor-1000 in four standard models
corresponding to 2, 3, 4 and 5 channel prisms.
For each of those models, four sensor types are available
covering a range of performance.
All models may be supplied with one of three common
The Condor-1000 MS-5 is the five-channel model of the
Shown here is the prism assembly for the version with
the Cypress IBIS5-B-1300 2/3-inch CMOS image sensor.
The separation prism can be seen with five sensors
This prism is compatible with most common lenses used on
consumer digital SLR cameras but best chromatic
aberration performance requires custom optics designed
for the large glass thickness in front of the sensor.
