“The Flea2 2.0 megapixel model expands the Flea2 family from 0.3 to 2.0—-offering customers the choice of higher resolution and speed within the same small package,” said Vlad Tucakov, Director, Point Grey Research. “The Flea2 is also backwards compatible with the IEEE-1394a interface standard used by the original Flea camera, so there’s no need to change the software or host adapter."
The new 2.0MP Flea2 camera can deliver full resolution 1624x1224 images at 14 FPS, and contains all the core features of the Flea2 family, including 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 2.0MP Flea2 camera gives users eight models to choose from, making it a versatile, cost-effective choice for demanding imaging applications. Monochrome and color sensor options include the new 2.0 MP ICX274 (1624x1224 at 14 FPS), the 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 2.0MP Flea2, model FL2-20S4, is available now in monochrome and color from Point Grey Research and its network of distributors.
