In 2011, I reviewed the Andor Neo, one of the first scmos cameras commercially available. I ended my report with this statement,

“…there is much life left in the good old frame transfer sensor…until someone cooks up a back thinned scmos…”

Recently, back thinned scmos camera have come to market, and Kurt Thorne at the UCSF NIC has an excellent report on Photometrics’ new Prime 95B camera. While there may be specific areas of research that can benefit from a BT EMCCD, it looks like the days of EMCCD are at an end for most of us. I guess the question now is, what comes next?
