The Min-I-Cam is an extremely compact, intensified, single piece camera that is ideal for covert surveillance applications (day or night). It has a custom image intensifier wired for gating and external gain control, a gate drive amplifier that switches the photocathode on and off, and an autogate circuit that controls gating and gain of the intensifier. Intensifier gate width and gain can also be manually controlled. The Min-I-Cam is available with a Gen II, Gen II XD-4, Gen III, Gen IV or UV intensifier.

The Min-I-Cam is small and light - it weighs only 12 ounces and is only 3.85" x 2" x 2.65"!

The lens interface is 1” C-Mount. A lens is not included with the camera.

Available options include:
  1. An S-20 photocathode for shifting the intensifier response into the UV spectrum (180nm to 830nm response).
  2. A Gen IV image intensified Min-I Cam.
