There are a lot of methods to acquire multispectral images. Dynamic band selective and area-scan multispectral camera has not developed yet. This research focused on development of a filter exchangeable 3CCD camera which is modified from the conventional 3CCD camera. The camera consists of F-mounted lens, image splitter without dichroic coating, three bandpass filters, three image sensors, filer exchangeable frame and electric circuit for parallel image signal processing. In addition firmware and application software have developed. Remarkable improvements compared to a conventional 3CCD camera are its redesigned image splitter and filter exchangeable frame. Computer simulation is required to visualize a pathway of ray inside of prism when redesigning image splitter. Then the dimensions of splitter are determined by computer simulation which has options of BK7 glass and non-dichroic coating. These properties have been considered to obtain full wavelength rays on all film planes. The image splitter is verified by two line lasers with narrow waveband. The filter exchangeable frame is designed to make swap bandpass filters without displacement change of image sensors on film plane. The developed 3CCD camera is evaluated to application of detection to scab and bruise on Fuji apple. As a result, filter exchangeable 3CCD camera could give meaningful functionality for various multispectral applications which need to exchange bandpass filter.
