A Cherenkov imaging camera for the CANGAROO-III experiment has been developed for observations of gamma-ray induced air-showers at energies from 1011 to 1014 eV. The camera consists of 427 pixels, arranged in a hexagonal shape at 0.17 intervals, each of which is a 3/4-inch diameter photomultiplier module with a Winston-coneshaped light guide. The camera was designed to have a large dynamic range of signal linearity, a wider eld of view, and an improvement in photon collection eciency compared with the CANGAROO-II camera. The camera, and a number of the calibration experiments made to test its performance, are described in detail in this paper.
