Basler Cameras by Comparison: Better Images, Lower Price with the Basler ace acA1300-200um
Basler cameras offer outstanding image quality at a terrific price/performance ratio. Yet how do they fare in direct comparison with competitor's cameras? We tested this using our ace acA1300-200um with the PYTHON 1300 sensor from ON Semiconductor against two competitors' cameras with the same sensor. The prerequisites were the same for all cameras, yet the units ultimately produced at times significant differences in terms of image quality.
Identical Sensor, Different Image Quality
The sensor alone is no guarantee of a good image. It always depends on how the camera supports the sensor performance. For our head-to-head test, we pitted one of our ace cameras – the acA1300-200um – against two cameras from our competitors, all under identical conditions. All three cameras were outfitted with the PYTHON 1300 sensor from ON Semiconductor. The test results show that in many cases there are broad disparities in the image quality of the three tested cameras despite having the same sensor. While the images from the competitors' cameras showed streaking and heightened noise, the ace delivered the most homogeneous images.
