Why do MicaSense Sensors use such narrow bands in comparison to other multispectral cameras that use wide bands?

By using narrow bands, RedEdge is able better detect the spectral reflectance properties of a plant, specifically the properties that are most important for vegetation indices. The narrow bands allow higher sensitivity than wide bands by capturing the most relevant segments of the spectral curve.
