QHY QHY268 Monochrome Photographic APS-C CMOS Camera - QHY268M-PH

QHY600 Lite

Introduction of QHY600L(Lite) QHY600L (Lite) is a new Edition of QHY600 Series.

Price Range: $3,980 to $4,699

1. The body length becomes shorter, which is about 112mm, equal to 268C.

2. The Built-in Image Buffer (memory storage) is adjusted to 1GB
compared to 2GB in QHY600PH/Pro, which can guarantee memory
requirements still.

Other specifications of QHY600L keep the same

with QHY600PH except the body length and weight.


Model QHY600 PRO  (Professional Version, previous name QHY600U3G20)
QHY600 PH     (Photographic Version,previous name QHY600U3)
QHY600 PH-L (Photographic Liet Version
Image Sensor SONY Full Frame BSI CMOS Sensor IMX455ALK-K (Industry Grade)
This sensor is available in both -C (
consumer grade) and -K (industry grade).  General speaking the -K version has longer lifetime than the -C version.  Currently ,both the monochrome QHY600 Photographic version and monochrome QHY600 Professional version use the -K version of the sensor.
