In this work, we investigated the degradation of commercial camera sensors exposed to 100 Gy of γ dose at dose rates of 0.55 Gy/min and 1.34 Gy/min respectively. The results show that the degradation is strongly dependent on the dose rate but doesnt vary much with the accumulation of dose at constant dose rate. Furthermore, cameras with in-built processing electronics are more susceptible to gamma radiations as compared to the cameras with sensing unit only.
