Low lux colour CMOS camera?

  1. Hi again,

    Does anyone know of a miniature color PAL CMOS camera sensative to 1 Lux or
    less?

    I have found very sensitive colour CCD cameras and fairly sensitive B&W CMOS
    cameras but no sensitive CMOS cameras.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jack
     
  2. One more question:

    Am I getting confused by the physics? In other words, if I have a white
    light source of, say, 1W, will this be detected with the same efficiency by
    both a 3lux colour camera and a 1lux B&W camera? I ask this because I now
    know that lux is a psychometric unit - it takes into account the efficiency
    with which the human eye sees different wavelengths.

    Thanks,
    Jack
