sCMOS based cameras can provide a much lower noise floor than typical CCD based cameras. A low noise floor means that the camera can detect signals that would otherwise have remained hidden within the noise background which helps to produce a high-fidelity image. A low noise floor also allows for the widest possible dynamic range. One of the main types of noise that makes up this noise floor comes from “Read Noise”.
