New sony sensor imx342lla

Post by Janwillem » Fri Dec 07, 2018 5:06 am

Dear Sean and Sam,

I did notice there is finally a new song mono sensor with aps-c size :D !
It only has a global shutter, I don't know if it is a big problem with deep sky imaging.
It would be super to have a mono version of a aps-c size I additon to the asi071 pro.

Are there plans of a new mono cam with aps-c size or so?

Kind regards, Jan-Willem

Yes, we are working on new aps-c cameras, I can't tell when, but we are doing something new.

Hi Sean,

Thanx for you're reply, can't you really tell something more ;) ?
Could you tell me / use if you think a new cam could be realeasd aps-c size mono in 2019?
I'm saving for a mono cam. The asi 1600 is a great cam but a little bit smaller sensor. But if there is a chance there could be a bigger sensor in 2019. I want to wait with investing in a other cam.

Kind regards Jan-Willem

I've bought both the ASI094MC and the ASI183MM Pro direct from ZWO and I'm quite happy with them. But I won't be buying another ZWO camera until I see an APS-C or larger cooled mono camera offered.

we are always evaluating new sensor and release it if it has good value for money
absolutely 342 is not very good value for money
