Hi again,

Does anyone know of a miniature color PAL CMOS camera sensative to 1 Lux or
less?

I have found very sensitive colour CCD cameras and fairly sensitive B&W CMOS
cameras but no sensitive CMOS cameras.

One more question:

Am I getting confused by the physics? In other words, if I have a white
light source of, say, 1W, will this be detected with the same efficiency by
both a 3lux colour camera and a 1lux B&W camera? I ask this because I now
know that lux is a psychometric unit - it takes into account the efficiency
with which the human eye sees different wavelengths.

See:

Thanks,
Jack
