    Average Good budget VNIR hyperspectral imaging camera

    We acquired a Resonon Pika XC2 hyperspectral imaging camera (visible to near infrared —VNIR) for my PhD project, in 2014 2015, following months of struggling with outdated hyperspectral imaging cameras prone to overheating and frequent malfunctions. This line scan (pushbroom) camera made my life easier: it was fast compared to the old cameras and reliable. Remarkably, nearly a decade later, it continues to operate reliably.

    Featuring 1600 pixels per line and a fine pixel size, it captures data across ca. 462 wavelengths spanning from just below 400 nm to around 1005 nm (400 1000 nm), approximately 1.3 nm spectral sampling. However, the resultant file sizes are excessively large owing to the high spatial and spectral resolution. Depending on the number of lines scanned, managing these files can be daunting for saving, transferring, and processing.

    Our experience with the camera’s hardware has been virtually trouble free. It consistently springs to action with a simple USB connection to the computer and activation of the lighting system.

    The camera operates seamlessly with the Spectronon Pro software package, available for download at no cost from the Resonon website, requiring registration. This software facilitates camera control, stage movement, and occasional image processing tasks, which prove beneficial. The only issue is that light and dark images are taken before the imaging process starts and these are used for all the following images that can be a source of inaccuracy if one forgets to retake the images when scanning many samples.

    The camera’s moving stage, measuring a modest 25 cm x 20 cm, and its lighting system (the older version in our possession) featuring four round halogen lights, present minor challenges. The lights tend to loosen easily and are difficult to adjust, although newer models now feature a linear lighting system (for a relatively higher price).

    The camera’s smile and keystone are high according to what Resonon had reported (could not find it anymore to validate) and are bigger than the pixel size.

    Considering its features and performance, the camera’s price is reasonable and competitive with Specim rival models. However, I do not have firsthand experience with Specim cameras to provide a direct comparison of quality.

ContentPika XC2 400 - 1000 nm High-Precision VNIR The Pika XC2 is a high-resolution hyperspectral camera that covers the Visible + Near-Infrared (VNIR) spectral range. The Pika XC2 has high spatial resolution, best in-class spectral resolution, and excellent imaging quality. Popular in VNIR laboratory applications. The Pika XC2 can be used in our laboratory, and outdoor, and airborne hyperspectral systems, as well as standalone or integrated into your system.Pika UV 330 - 800 nm Ultraviolet + Visible The Pika UV (formerly NUV2) is a hyperspectral camera that scans the Visible and Near Ultraviolet (VIS+NUV) spectral range. An optimized objective lens provides excellent imaging throughout the entire spectral range. Because halogen lights have low output in much of the NUV, Resonon offers an NUV lighting module to augment illumination for our desktop system. The Pika UV can be used in our airborne, laboratory, and outdoor hyperspectral systems, as well as standalone or integrated into your system.Fenix FENIX is optimized for the most demanding geological, law enforcement, and environmental applications. In a single continuous image, FENIX spectral camera delivers the best hyperspectral data ever seen over VNIR, NIR, and SWIR wavelengths. FENIX offers extreme ruggedness and 75% reduction in size and weight compared to previous multi-sensor systems. The excellence in technical performance and physical size has been achieved through innovative and unique ?single optics dual spectrograph? design.Specim FX10 Specim FX10 is a line-scan hyperspectral camera that operates in the visible and near-infrared (VNIR) region. It is an excellent tool for industrial and scientific applications. The Specim FX10 operates in the 400-1000 nm region, and the color-optimized Specim FX10c in the 400-780 nm region.HySpex Baldur S-384 N Baldur S-384 N covers the spectral range from 960-2500 nm. All Baldur cameras are Nyquist cameras giving a spectral resolution of 2 spectral bands while capturing 4 times as much light as the classic systems. To ensure that the most information per framerate is provided, the spectral resolution is kept very close to 2 bands. Additionally, the spatial resolution of Baldur S-384 N is better than 1.5 pixels, yielding a very sharp camera.HySpex VNIR-1800 The HySpex VNIR-1800 hyperspectral camera is developed for field, laboratory, and airborne applications. HySpex VNIR-1800 utilizes a cutting edge actively cooled and stabilized scientific CMOS detector. This makes VNIR-1800 the ideal camera for high-end data acquisitions where high radiometric accuracy is required. The dynamic range of 20 000 ensures outstanding SNR levels even in darker areas of an image of highly dynamic scenes. With a max frame rate of 260 fps, combined with aberration-corrected optics and high optical throughput (f/2.5), HySpex VNIR-1800 offers a unique combination of data quality, high speed, and sensitivity. A wide range of close-up lenses allows the use of the camera at working distances ranging from a few centimeters with a spatial resolution of 24 ?m to infinity e.g. airborne remote sensing.
