We develop an analytic model that relates intensity correlation measurements performed by an image sensor to the properties of photon pairs illuminating it. Experiments using an effective single-photon counting camera, a linear electron-multiplying charge-coupled device camera, and a standard CCD camera confirm the model. The results open the field of quantum optical sensing using conventional detectors.
