Flea®3 arrow
new

The fully redesigned, next generation Flea3 camera series builds on the success of the ultra-compact Flea2 by adding new Sony image sensors to the line-up and a choice of IEEE 1394b (FireWire) or GigE Vision digital interface. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 30 mm and weighing only 58 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.

Flea®2 arrow
 

Flea2

Sensor: Sony 1/3", 1/2", 1/1.8", 2/3" CCDs, Color/BW
Resolution: 0.3, 0.8, 1.3, 1.4, 2.0, 5.0 Megapixels
Frame Rate: 7.5 FPS (FL2G-50S5) to 80FPS (FL2-03S2)
Dimensions: 29 x 29 x 30 mm
Interface: 9-pin IEEE-1394b 800Mb/s interface

At 29x29x30mm, the Flea®2 is even smaller than the original Flea camera and is designed to have the form factor of similar industry standard analog cameras. The 800Mb/s interface enables full frame rate RGB image transmission and even more cameras on the same bus. The IEEE-1394b cable with jack screws allows a more secure connection to the camera.
