Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds are small birds in the family Trochilidae. They are known for their ability to hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings, 15 to 80 times per second (depending on the species). Capable of sustained hovering, the hummingbird has the ability to fly deliberately backwards or vertically, and to maintain position while drinking from flower blossoms. They are named for the characteristic hum made by their wings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hummingbird

nac MLX Introduces World’s First Color Low Light Camera

nac low light High Speed Video camera system nac Image Technology, the most experienced name in specialty imaging systems, presents the MLX… the first color low light camera designed for use in applications where normal CCTV cameras can’t see anymore!

Simi Valley, CA – nac’s new ultra high sensitivity color camera system, the MLX, is a revolutionary design adopting an exciting new CCD technology that allows brilliant color video images to be captured in low light conditions.

The MLX Camera System is ideal for a variety of security, industry and science applications including surveillance, bioluminescence, chemo luminescence and fluorescence. The camera’s robust design makes it ideal for all types of application environments, both indoor and out.

One camera does it all! Since there’s no image intensifier tube that can be damaged, nac’s MLX can be used in all lighting conditions: dawn, daylight, dusk and moon light. The MLX has a maximum noise-less sensitivity of 0.01 lux in color mode and 0.002 lux in monochrome mode.
