We investigate the utilization of a high frame rate, 2-D commercial-grade camera in a spectral domain (SD) OCT system driven by a super-luminescent (SLD) light source, using parallel illumination on the sample with a line focus (line-field SD-OCT, LF-SD-OCT). To this goal, several regimes of operation of the camera are evaluated, for different values of the exposure time, ISO and image size, assessing their suitability for depth resolved imaging. A-scans and B-scans of specular and scattering samples are produced, albeit of lesser quality than those we obtained in the past with a relatively expensive, high bit-depth, scientific camera. A comparative study involving several of the camera parameters and their impact on the system's imaging range and resolution is presented.
