In digital photography, binning is a process by which multiple nearby pixels are combined into a larger pixel. Binning improves the signal-to-noise ratio at the expense of a lower resolution image.

The OGMA AP26CC and AP26MC cameras support digital binning from 1x1 to 8x8 in either stacking or averaging method, and hardware binning from 1x1 to 3x3 in averaging method.

Hardware pixel binning is much faster than software binning.
