The new Grasshopper Express camera series features a completely new hardware platform designed to accommodate a wide range of high speed Kodak and Sony image sensors. The Grasshopper Express is housed in the same compact metal case as the original Grasshopper. The camera also comes complete with a variety of new features, including enhanced opto-isolated GPIO, new hardware trigger modes, and improved imaging performance.
