The Flea3 FL3-GE line of the world’s smallest Gigabit Ethernet cameras offers a total of twelve monochrome and color CCD models, ranging from VGA to 5.0 MP. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 30 mm and weighing only 38 grams, the Flea3 has the same small, lightweight form factor as many industry-standard “ice cube” analog cameras. The Flea3 also offers a host of new features, including enhanced opto-isolated GPIO; an on-camera frame buffer; non-volatile user data storage; new trigger modes; and improved imaging performance.
