I couldn't get your mailing address to work ... so I am posting this to
the network. We are seriously considering acquiring an Eikonix 1412 ...
this is a 4096 x 4096 pixel x 12 bit CCD linear array stepping camera ...
we would want to connect it to a SUN-III/160C-P8 system ... we were given
a quote for a SUN3/VME-bus interface including "... hardware, 12' cable,
documentation, and Driver / Library software package with full support."
I had expected this system would work immediately on installation w/out
the kind of tinkering you mention in your note. I would appreciate a
summary of your experience with this camera system and it's support ...
including (if possible) a report on photometric performance, signal to
noise ratio, sensitivity, scan to scan variability, and ease of use by

p.s. (1) I am told that Eikonix is a subsidiary of Kodak.
(2) There has been some suggestion in this newsgroup that
re-Kodak products were somewhat difficult to use
(3) I would like to know what kind of light box you use
with a 12 bit camera that can guarantee photometric
uniformity and low noise ... and/or how much frame
averaging or time integration you need to do to get
a low noise image anywhere near full precision of the
