Two New USB3.0 Cameras from Point Grey

Point Grey have recently released two brand new Chameleon3 and Blackfly USB3.0 camera models.


The latest Chameleon3 (CM3-U3-13Y3) features a 1/2" global shutter CMOS from ON Semiconductor. The camera is capable of running at 149 FPS at full resolution and up to 470 FPS in pixel binning mode. It is ideal for applications that benefit from high speed and global shutter imaging performance, such as 3D scanning, factory automation and tracking.


The new Blackfly (BFLY-U3-50H5) camera models are based on the latest Sharp RJ32S4AA0DT (mono) and RJ32S3AA0DT (colour) sensors, a 2/3" global shutter CCD. These cameras are capable of streaming 2448 x 2048 resolution images at 7.5 FPS. Sharp's new CCD technology provides highly improved sensitivity and image quality compared with conventional CCDs.
