See the world in a whole new way with the FLIR BFS-U3-51S5P-C. Sony’s new IMX250MZR with on-sensor polarizing flters adds polarimetry to the FLIR Blacky S already powerful feature-set.

This model leverages Sony's Pregius global shutter CMOS technology designed to fulfill the promise of global shutter CMOS: crisp, clear, distortion-free images at high speeds.  

The IMX250MZR sensor features a smaller and very popular pixel size of 3.45 µm; the smaller pixel size is balanced with lower Temporal Dark Noise to maintain Pregius’ outstanding imaging performance. 

The Blackfly S with on-sensor polarization is available now for pre-order.
