AVT Bonito CL-400 B/C High Speed camera, 4 Megapixels with 386 fps, Camera Link

AVT Bonito CL-400 B/C High Speed camera, 4 Megapixels with 386 fps, Camera Link

Product Overview:

  • ROI (Region of Interest)
  • Fixed pattern noise (FPN) correction
  • Digital Gain (selects 8 of 10 bits for output)
  • Offset (brightness)
  • Exposure time: 1.5 µs, up to 1 s (recommended), > 1s also possible
  • Two readout modes:
    • 386 fps with two 10-tap Camera Link outputs
    • 193 fps with one 10-tap Camera Link output
  • Continuous mode (image acquisition with maximum frame rate)
  • Image on Demand mode (triggered image acquisition)



The Bonito CL-400B/C is a high speed camera with excellent image quality and a robust metal housing. It comes with a very sensitive CMOS sensor with global shutter. This high speed camera runs 386 fps at 4 Megapixel resolution. Considerably higher frame rates can be reached with a smaller ROI (region of interest). 


  • High speed camera, 386 fps at 2320 x 1726 pixels
  • Global shutter CMOS sensor (excellent sensitivity due to microlenses)
  • Robust and lightweight aluminum housing
  • High data rates, 2 x 10-tap Camera Link Full+
  • Very low power consumption, 4.2 W
  • Options:
    • Available with C/F/EF-Mount

The Bonito CL-400B/C high speed camera is the perfect choice for applications which require a very fast frame rate and excellent image quality. Its global shutter CMOS sensor is ideally suited for high-resolution motion capture. The camera transmits the images to the frame grabber in real-time. Another benefit is the robust, lightweight, and very compact housing.

Typical applications:

  • Applications with high demands on image quality and very fast frame rates
  • Motion capture with high resolution
  • 3D recordings of still and moving objects
  • Science and research
  • Medical imaging
  • High speed imaging in general
