Color Night Vision with Sony ISX017

KB ViTA publishes a PAL-format night scene video with new Sony ISX017 Starvis sensor. The video was acquired through the imagers's analog output at 1/50s exposure time, with 25mm F1.2 lens:



ISX017 has not been officially announced yet, but there is quite a lot of info about it on the Net:


Thanks to AB for the info!

  1. Possibly with a moon... fairly prominent shadows in images

    1. So what genius? Even with full moon, that's impressive, you always throwing negative vibes on these postings

  2. sensivity is similar like IMX225.... but no use of ICR is great advantage. For security - if price will be low - this camera will be hot selling and kill imx225, or aptina

  3. For comparison, see below some full moon footage recorded by me with a 10 years old 1/2-inch type Sony ExView CCD in a Samsung surveillance camera. Not 50fps, of course, but automatic long exposure. A f/1.0 Pentax/Cosmicar lens was used. I learned that the limited light acceptance angle of the image sensor (photodiode size, microlenses) renders such a fast lens useless in the most cases! In my example the bold 8-micron pixel pitch of the 1/2 inch sensor allowed for a suitable angle of acceptance. But the 1/3 inch version of this sensor already showed vignetting within the bokeh discs. Does anybody know why the sensor manufacturers almost never publish usable information about this limitation in their datasheets? I wish to see curves of collection efficiency versus incident angle H and V...

    1. according to your video, the exposure is about 1/5 sec. Probably there used ICX429. I can confidently say that this sensor is able to see much better than presented in the video, especially when the moon is full. Here's an example of shooting EV76C661 in binning 2*2, and exposure of 1/5 sec. lighting 3/4 moon. Before watching, better videos download as online much it compressive

      View on night vision Pulsar 770A, "night mode" (this is the binning with summation) he sees very well, however, the exposure is also very long, due to this visible blurring.
