Camera Lineup

We make quite a few different remote sensing cameras - from point and shoot, smart phone, DLSR and UAV types.  If you have a particular need for a camera not listed in our store, contact us because we may have already converted it.  We carry Canon, Sony, Nikon, Samsung, ProGo, industrial USB C-Mount and DJI cameras as Blue-Green-NIR 680-800nm, Green-Red-NIR 800-900nm and 2-camera 5-band systems.

The  camera that is best suited for you depends on your personal preferences, cost, whether you are using a UAV or fixed wing aircraft, whether you need GPS for geotagging pictures, weight restriction, resolution requirements, UAV integration, etc.  For small UAV's, the Canon point and shoot cameras with the optional firmware that adds timed interval shutter control work well. 

Our new Samsung smart phone based remote sensing camera with our custom app for triggering the cameras is interesting because the app not only gives you timed interval shutter control, but it can take pictures sequentially from the front and rear cameras and records data from a variety of sensors to a separate text file.  Data includes time, date, picture name, GPS coordinates, altitude, direction, ambient light and orientation.

We continue to be the foremost innovators in new types of cameras and conversions.
