Hyperspectral Camera Made with DSLR
Posted on December 19, 2011 by saya
Hyperspectral sensors are usually quite expensive, which keeps many people away from utilizing the hyperspectral image technology. That’s so pity! Hence some scientists have decided to turn a DSLR into a hyperspectral camera using stock SLR glass, a gel diffraction filter, PVC pipe, duct tape and other materials. Certainly they succeeded, as the cheap imaging spectrometer can deliver spectral resolution equal to that of commercial solutions but at a far lower cost. The experiment and process may sound easy, but to construct such a camera you may need to master quite large amount of knowledge.
