Summary form only given. This paper describes a camera that uses a 12/spl times/6 array of diamond detectors with 1 mm/spl times/1 mm pixels and <200 /spl mu/m dead space between adjacent pixels. The open area of the camera is 83%. At a 2:1 magnification ratio, the camera can resolve 0.5 mm features in the pinch. The camera can also selectively image the VUV emissions from the early phases of the implosion or the X-rays from the pinch formation, with continuous time resolution. The dynamic range of the detectors is in excess of 1000:1. A 3/spl times/3 array prototype was fabricated and tested on DM2 at Physics International. It was shown that there was no cross-talk from adjacent pixels. This paper will present data from the first tests of the full 6/spl times/12 pixel-array camera.
