Best Sellers of 2015 - USB3 and GigE Vision Cameras
Welcome to the best sellers for 2015! If you’re curious about which Point Grey camera models customers are using look no further. Looking back on 2015, we took all of our USB 3.0 and GigE purchases and ordered them based on quantity alone, in other words, which models were ordered the most! With 2016 already here, these best sellers might just give you some insight on which camera models to use.
Why? The combination of high frame rate (150 FPS) and low cost makes this camera our top USB 3.0 mono model for 2015. Along with the fact that the 1.3 MP sensor is global shutter and that the Flea3 is lightweight, compact and USB 3.0 makes this an excellent high speed, general purpose camera. If you're not too picky about low light performance this camera offers excellent value.
Why? 1080p60! Sony's IMX036 runs at an impressive 60 FPS at a max resolution of 2080 x 1552. For only $595 it's a cost effective, lightweight, USB 3.0 solution for color visualization applications that demand HD imaging at 60 FPS. While the sensor’s rolling shutter might put off some customers, the high frame rate helps reduce image distortion while its Exmor sensor technology produces vibrant images with a high signal-to-noise ratio (40 dB).
Why? This model offers a very competitive price point ($395 USD) for a 1.3 MP global shutter camera running at 60 FPS. The balance between resolution, frame rate and price makes this GigE model an excellent cost effective camera for a wide variety of applications.
Why? Out of all of our color models under $500 this model was the best selling because of its imaging performance (low temporal dark noise: 6.97 e-, high saturation capacity: 33723 e-, high dynamic range: 73.09 dB). It offers the same global shutter imaging performance and resolution as its twin Pregius sensor the IMX174 but with a lower frame rate of 41 FPS. If you don't need very fast frame rates, this model offers excellent overall value along with some of the best color imaging performance.
