Description


The Temperature feature is a read only feature that provides an indication of the temperature of the sensor chip.  This is important because sensor performance is related to the temperature of the sensor.  Typically, read noise can double for every 10° increase in temperature.  In warm environments, the temperature sensor can be used to assess the effectiveness of the mounting hardware at removing heat from the camera.
