    I wasn't able to find those in the records. Can you double-check the numbers?

    There are three possibilities for upgrades, in increasing order of performance and cost:
    1. Replace the board with an STF board. The main advantage is faster readout speed.
    2. Transplant the sensor into an STF-8300M or STF-8300EN body. This will also provide a desiccant plug and better cooling.
    3. Transplant the sensor into an Aluma 8300 body. This provides the ultimate cooling performance with > 50C delta.
    Color sensors haven't been available for some time now, but we do still have the ability to build color cameras given a sensor.
