Grasshopper3 Cameras To Feature the 2nd Generation Sony Pregius IMX250 & IMX252

Two upcoming Grasshopper3 USB3 Vision cameras will feature Sony's revolutionary 2nd generation Pregius global shutter CMOS sensors. These new sensors, the IMX250 and IMX252, are the highest resolution Pregius sensors to date. The pixel sizes have been reduced to 3.45 µm to enable higher resolution and support smaller optics made popular with the ICX625 and ICX655 sensors. Pregius' outstanding imaging performance is maintained by lowering temporal dark noise - another innovation from Sony engineers.
