8.8 Mpixel USB 3.0 camera takes colour images at 21 frames per second

Point Grey's FL3-U3-88S2C camera leverages the bandwidth capabilities of USB 3.0 by delivering 8.8 MP color images at 21 FPS (185 MByte/s) in an ultra-compact, low-cost package.

The unit features Sony's new IMX121 sensor with "Exmor R" back-illuminated CMOS architecture. By increasing quantum efficiency and reducing noise, "Exmor R" improves sensitivity and dynamic range for sharp, high-quality color images. The impressive 4096x2160 resolution combined with the ease of USB 3.0 and the camera's small size makes the new Flea3 suitable for a variety of high resolution color applications including automatic optical inspection, ophthalmology, interactive multimedia, and broadcast. Point Grey's Flea3 camera line measures just 29x29x30mm and provides a unique set of features dedicated to maximizing USB 3.0 reliability, including a 32 megabyte frame buffer; on-camera power, temperature, and status monitoring; and in-field updatable firmware. The camera also provides color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction, and pixel binning functionality.
