Canon has announced a new industrial monochrome camera that features a Nikon F-Mount.
The M15P-CL features a 15 megapixel APS-C black and white sensor, based on those used in EOS cameras. Canon say it's black and white sensor will enable it to detect foreign objects precisely. The sensor will be able to achieve low noise and a wide dynamic range, along with high contrast.
Industrial cameras are used for security and product inspection in various manufacturing processes. A Nikon lens mount has been used because Nikon lenses are standard in this market at the moment.
No pricing has been announced as yet.
