What is binning?

binningIt is an internal function of the cameras, that allows you to combine the value recorded by two or more adjacent pixels, according to a predetermined pattern.
When using this feature, the resolution is reduced, but you can obtain improvements in sensitivity, dynamic range, acquisition speed, and image noise.
For example, with 2x2 binning resolution is halved -since the values of 4 adjacent pixels are added together- but sensitivity and dynamic range are quadrupled, image noise is reduced to a quarter and the acquisition rate is doubled.
