March 22, 2007 - “The Flea2 addresses a wide range of customer needs, whether you are developing a new imaging application, or retrofitting an existing analog camera system,” said Vlad Tucakov, Director, Point Grey Research. “Feedback from our customers led directly to the development of the 1.4MP Flea2—powerful enough to deliver superior image quality, small enough to fit in tight spaces, yet priced for broad usage."The Sony ICX267 CCD used by the new Flea2 is known for its high sensitivity, low dark current and smear, and excellent anti-blooming characteristics. The camera can deliver full resolution 1392x1032 images at 15 FPS, and contains all the key features of the Flea2 family, such as jack screw connectors for secure locking, pixel binning and regions of interest modes via Format_7 and in-field firmware upgrades. Additional features include on-camera color processing and white balance, automatic synchronization of multiple cameras, external trigger and strobe output, and low power consumption. All Point Grey Research imaging products also include the FlyCapture® software development kit (SDK) for image acquisition and camera control.At 29x29x30mm, the Flea2 is the smallest 1394b camera in the world, and its mechanical components, such as the C-mount lens holder and camera mount, have been designed to industry standards. The addition of the 1.4MP Flea2 camera gives users six models to choose from, making it a versatile, cost-effective choice for demanding imaging applications. Monochrome and color sensor options include the new 1.4MP ICX267 (1392x1032 at 15 FPS), the 0.8MP ICX204 (1032x776 at 30 FPS), and the 0.3MP ICX424 (648x488 at 80 FPS).The 1.4MP Flea2, model FL2-14S3, is available now in monochrome and color from Point Grey Research and its network of distributors.
