Kongsberg Digital Still Camera – The OE14-208 (PAL and NTSC) is a new generation digital stills colour camera with smaller diameter and higher resolution than Kongsberg Maritimes previous model. Each image is framed using real time video and is temporarily stored in on-board memory (standard 256Mb expandable up to 4Gb). The image can then be uploaded on the surface using a rapid USB link. Images are selectable at resolutions of 640 x 480 up to 2592 x 1944 in JPEG or RAW format. When used with the dedicated flashgun (OE11-242) the E-TTL through lens flash metering gives accurate exposure control.
The Graphical User Interface (GUI) gives full control of the camera over RS232/RS485 and also allows the cameras framing video to be displayed on the PC. Optionally available is a USB link for “on the fly” communication and rapid image upload over 10 kilometres of fibre optic cable. If hardwire control is preferred then zoom, focus and shutter functions can be controlled in this way.
