*1 This value is sum of readout noise and dark current at 33 ms exposure.
*2 When exposure time is longer than 100 ms, white spots would be visible and image quality would be degraded.
*3 Calculated from the ratio of the full well capacity and the average readout noise.
*4 Digital processing in the camera
*5 When ambient operating temperature is higher than +35 ℃, white spots would be visible and image quality would be degraded.
