Goodbye Goliath! MicroLine is smaller and lighter-weight than the competition, but outperforms them in key areas such as noise, frame quality, download speeds, bit-depth, and CCD cooling.

At 3.7 x 3.7 x 4.8 inches the MicroLine is a small camera with big camera capabilities. Each component of the MicroLine camera is designed and manufactured for a long life in the most demanding conditions. MicroLine download speeds are fast yet maintain the 16-bit resolution necessary to produce high quality images. MicroLine cameras can achieve up to 60°C below ambient cooling without water assist. Simply set the MicroLine cooling where you want it and the camera will do the rest, quickly and without worries.
