Grasshopper®2 (FireWire)

The fully redesigned Grasshopper2 camera series is the next generation version of the high performance Grasshopper and offers users a FireWire 800 (1394b) digital interface. The Grasshopper2 uses the same form factor as the existing Grasshopper and a selection of the same image sensors, and adds several new features, including enhanced opto-isolated general purpose I/O and improved imaging performance.
